Sec. Clinton Asked For Help In Returning Laurean To Onslow County

An Ohio congressman wants the U.S. State Department to help get Cpl. Cesar Laurean back to Onslow County to face a murder charge.

Congressman Mike Turner, who's district includes Maria Lauterbach's hometown, says he recently contacted Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the extradition from Mexico.

Laurean is a Camp Lejeune Marine who is accused of killing the pregnant Lauterbach and burying her in his backyard. He was arrested in April and has been sitting in a Mexico prison, fighting a return to Onslow County.

"Our nation owes Maria, her unborn child, and the Lauterbach family every possible effort to bring Cesar Laurean to justice," Turner said in a news release. "I am hopeful that Secretary Clinton and the State Department can help to finally resolve this sad case," he said.

    I have a feeling that some of these Mexicans will do anything to keep that killer from coming back to the United States. I also would like to tell the killer "You can run but you can't hide." and "What happens down in Mexico stays in Mexico"

    Time for this "scum bag" to return and face a jury. But the coward hides.

    I sure hope Hillary can do something to get this piece of cowardly trash out of Mexico so he can stand trial and get what he deserves. To look at this picture of him make me want to vomit.
