Killer lived nearly 20 years in US as illegal alienH/T Immigration News daily
HOLLIDAYSBURG -- For 18 years, Miguel Padilla lived in the U.S., attended public schools, fathered three children and was married once. A self-employed contractor, he maintained his child support and wheeled around in a silver Jaguar. He also racked up a criminal record in Cambria County with at least two run-ins with the law in the Cresson area. Yet, as a native of Mexico, his legal status in this country is as confusing as the briefcase containing $19,600 in cash that authorities linked to him shortly after he murdered three Altoona men in August 2005. Padilla, 27, was sentenced to death Thursday for the killings.
