October 28, 2014


Miguel Angel Paredes was executed shortly before 7 pm CDT, on Tuesday, October 28, 2014, at the Walls Unit of the Huntsville State Penitentiary in Huntsville, Texas.   Thirty-two-year-old Miguel is convicted of murdering 23-year-old Nelly Bravo, 23-year-old Shawn Michael Caine, and 37-year-old Adrian Torres on September 17, 2000, in San Antonio, Texas.  Miguel has spent the last 13 years on Texas’ death row.


Miguel was one of 20 children, although seven of his siblings died before he was born.  Miguel was born in Chicago, Illinois to Mexican immigrant parents.  Miguel’s parents eventually moved the family to San Antonio, Texas, where Miguel eventually fell in with the violent Hermanos de Pistoleros Latinos gang.  Miguel claimed he joined the gang thinking he had found loyalty and love.  By the age of 15, Miguel had a pregnant girlfriend and a criminal record.


Early in September of 2000, Adrian Torres, a member of the Mexican Mafia, had given John Anthony Saenz over $800 worth of cocaine.  Shortly thereafter, he began calling Saenz’s house seeking repayment.  On September 17, 2000, Saenz told his wife to leave because Adrian was coming over and he was “going to take care of business.”  Saenz called and asked Greg Alvarado and Miguel Paredes to come over with weapons for back up.


Adrian brought Nelly Bravo and Shawn Caine along with him.  The three were ambushed by Saenz, Alvarado and Paredes.  After Adrian, Nelly, and Shawn were killed, they were wrapped in carpet and placed in the back of a pick-up truck.  After driving for a while, they pulled over on a dirt road and burned the carpets and the bodies.


Saenz and Alvarado each received a life sentence.  Paredes was sentenced to death.


Please pray for peace and healing for the families of Adrian, Nelly, and Shawn.  Please pray for strength for the family of Miguel Paredes.  Miguel claimed that he had accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.
