F.B.I. make two arrest in slaying of 6 Mexican immigrant workers in Georgia (video)



Tifton — Police think they have taken a major step toward solving a string of South Georgia home invasion robberies against Hispanics that have increased in number and savagery in recent months.
The viciousness reached a new level Friday, when six people were killed by bat-wielding attackers who crashed through four trailers and bludgeoned the sleeping occupants while demanding money.

Stacy Bernard Sims, 19, of Norman Park, and Jamie Deamtrive Underwood, 27, of Moultrie, were charged with one of the early Friday home invasions in Colquitt County, where a man was shot in the head and his wife was raped. The couple's three small children, who were home at the time, "were traumatized, but not physically hurt," said Vernon Keenan, director of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The man is still hospitalized in serious condition.

Authorities have said home invasions with beatings and robberies of Hispanics have been common for months, if not years. Gutierrez said his first visit to the home of a parishioner when he came to Tifton three years ago was because of a home invasion.
hey said two African-American guys pushed into their trailer, put a gun to the head of their son, who was 3 years old, and requested his money," the priest recalled. "We have this at least once or twice a month. Unfortunately, they don't go to the police because of their immigration situation or they are afraid the [attackers] will come back to them if they make a report."
