On February 14, 2018 Jesus Busso-Estoppellans, age 29, was found guilty by a jury of two counts of 1st Degree Murder and one count of Misconduct Involving Weapons in connection to the 2011 shooting of 18-year-old Tyler Webster and 19-year-old Olek Wladyszewski.

On June 29, 2011 Webster was able to call 911 alerting officers that he had been shot in the head while he sat in the passenger seat of his car. The driver Wladyszewski, had also been shot in the head and died at the scene. Investigators were soon able to link Busso-Estopellan through text messages to the shooting. Wladyszewski had been communicating Busso-Estoppellans minutes before the murders about meeting in the area.

Busso-Estopellan later admitted to investigators that he had lured the victims with the promise of a drug deal and then shot them both as they sat in the car. He told investigators he had planned to kill Wladyszewski and killed Webster to ensure there were no witnesses to the murder.

The jury found aggravating factors in this case and the trial is now in the penalty phase where the jury will hear presentations of evidence from both the defense and prosecutors before making a decision to sentence the defendant to death or life in prison.

  1. One can only hope the jury is savvy enough to want to save taxpayers dollars and sentence the killer to a death sentence.

  2. On February 14th he was found guilty. He should have been hung at sundown on February 15th.

  3. How can you find Jesus guilty when he is the only living person who hasn’t sinned???

  4. The death penalty is appropriate, but I’m sure we’ll have to wait 20 or 30 years to have it finished, due to numerous appeals. I think in the meantime they should lock him in a wooden coffin for the majority of the time…

      Right? It almost doesn’t matter whether they get life or death as they will spend a ridiculous amount of time in appeals. How can we not have instituted laws by now that state,”If there is irrefutable evidence that you
      are guilty, you get death. It is immediate, and a mirror of the death sentence you gave the victim.” I cannot understand our system and it’s insane desire to waste time and money giving these murderers the chance to appeal. He’s already had seven more years of life than the victim, let’s call it game over.

  5. Vigilante justice is the peoples’ last resort…..coming I fear
