The family of an Albion woman who was stabbed to death outside a Walmart supercenter in Sunday evening is grieving. Sheriff’s deputies say a Honduran illegal immigrant is now in custody, and two other Mexican illegal immigrants have been turned over to border patrol.
"It's hard to accept the death this way,” said Byham. “No father should have to lose a daughter like this."
He was too upset to go on camera, but wanted to share the beauty he saw in her with others.
"She was very smart, loved the outdoors. She was a cat lover, very much into artwork."
Investigators say the man who attacked her was specifically targeting her.
"Our best guess right now is that he was interested in stealing her vehicle. That's what prompted this whole thing,” said Undersheriff Steven Smith.
Luis Rodriguez-Flamenco, 24, has been arrested and charged with murder in the second degree. Smith says he's an illegal immigrant from Honduras.
Two other men, both illegal immigrants from Mexico, were with Rodriguez-Flamenco at the time of the stabbing. Investigators say they were not directly involved in the assault and were turned over to U.S. Border Patrol.
"It's the second homicide this year in Albion perpetrated by an illegal immigrant,” said Smith.
Deputies say Walmart surveillance video and key witnesses provided crucial information police needed. After a massive search by multiple police agencies in the village of Albion, all three men were captured, but investigators are still looking for missing pieces, including the weapon.
"It was a knife, which we actually have not recovered yet, so we're still looking for that,” said Smith.
Byham's family says they are now seeking justice.
"The man that did this… gets the same mercy that he give my daughter, through the court of law,” said Byham.
For now, her father is focused on giving her a proper burial. He says he will cherish a lifetime of memories he made with her.
"She's my baby... she's my baby girl,” said Scott Byham, crying. “She was beautiful."
Walmart released a statement to YNN Monday afternoon, offering condolences to Byham's family and saying: “We’ve been in close contact with law enforcement, offering to provide them with any information we may have that they believe may be useful, including the surveillance video taken around the time this happened.”
