Here we have another story in which there are no good guys.
43-year-old Dunieski Castillo-Leyva and two of his friends were said to have responded to a sex ad on Backpage in Austin, Texas. The trio drove to an apartment where an argument reportedly ensued over money paid and ‘services’ not received. Of course, arguments like this tend to turn violent and this one was no different.
Levya and his friends tried leaving the area and got into his car. This is where 17-year-old Julian Juan Medrano allegedly fired a single shot into Levya’s vehicle instantly killing the man. Medrano is said to be related to the apartment where the three men drove to, but it hasn’t been made public as to what capacity he was serving.
The investigation is currently ongoing.
Anyone with information on the homicide is asked to call the Homicide Tip Line at 512-477-3588 or Crime Stoppers at 512-472-TIPS.
I’m not saying this is what exactly happened, however, when you argue with a prostitute over money and try to get it back, that’s when pimps and their muscle try to get involved and they only solve problems one way, with violence. Much in the way that you wouldn’t ask a drug dealer for change, if you’re out money because of a Backpage sex ad, that’s on you. Just let it go man, because it’s gone. It’s not worth losing your life over. Even better, how about not using Backpage to solicit prostitutes? It only continues the cycle of violence and abuse many of these women have to endure from their pimps and traffickers.
