Salgado in Mitchell Courtroom, Defense Questions Interview Tactics

Bookmark and Share

The man accused of killing a 15 year old Mitchell girl was in court for a suppression hearing.  Alexander Salgado is accused of killing Jasmine Guevara.  The defense questions the tactic's police officers used during two interviews with Salgado the day after Guevara's disappearance.

It's been 4 months since Jasmine Guavara's body was found in a burning car in a deserted field.  While no sign of the tragedy remains, the pain is still very evident for Guavara's family, as they sit inside the courtroom during a suppression hearing for the man accused of murdering their daughter.

The family sits in the front row as the state calls witnesses to the stand to testify about the events leading up to the arrest of Alexander Salgado.  
The defense says during an interview conducted by officers, Salgado asked for an "attorney."  
The officer who questioned Salgado at the police station testifies he did not hear Salgado's request until he listened to a recording of the session days later.  He says Salgado voluntarily answered all questions asked.

The defense also raised questions about the officer's actions during a second interview.  
They say Salgado started admitting his involvement in the crime.  And at one point he told the officers, "Take me to jail, right now." 

The defense asks why the interview wasn't stopped immediately.
The officer says he did not believe Salgado actually wanted to leave at that time, because he kept talking.
At the end of the hearing Judge Sean O'Brien did not rule on the motions.  He says he will issue a written decision to the attorneys.  

Salgado's next hearing is scheduled for April 7th in Hanson County.
