Drunk, Wrong-Way, Homicide...What's Missing?

You've read the story and seen the pictures.

Leopoldo R. Salas Gaytan, 41, is charged with homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle, homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle (prohibited alcohol concentration) and operating without a license causing death for the New Year's Day crash that killed 34-year-old Corrie A. Damske, according to the complaint


Meantime, Channel 4 reports that Gaytan is an illegal alien, a fact which the JS has studiously avoided mentioning until the story linked above. (Edit added pursuant to combox note.)

Tragic story, to be sure. NEVER should have happened.

But your claim that the JS omitted an important, relevant fact is wrong. I clicked on the link you provided, and lo and behold...

"According to a press release from the Milwaukee County Sheriff's department, Salas-Gaytan admitted to being in the United States illegally for the past 13 years but his immigration status had not yet been confirmed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement."
