Arrest of Randy Mark Yager rattles the Rosarito real estate industry

ROSARITO, Baja California(PH) -  En Rosarito Randy Mark Yager, uno de los 15 hombres más buscados por U.S. Marshals y su pareja Jessica Mary Dorian, se hacían pasar por el respetable matrimonio formado por Tev y Margie Rothman, dedicados a los bienes raíces y fue hasta que la Policía Estatal Preventiva (PEP) los detuvo que se descubrió su verdadera identidad y sus vínculos con el crimen.

El miércoles 15 de octubre, los agentes lograron la detención del individuo, mientras que su compañera perdía la vida cuando era perseguida por los policías.

Esta noticia cimbró a los agentes inmobiliarios, recuerda Víctor Loza ex presidente estatal de éstos, quien mencionó que él conoció a la pareja en el 2002 cuando compraron tres casas y después rentaron dos de ellas, para tener ingresos y sobrevivir.

Agregó que tiempo más tarde, el hombre vio en los bienes raíces la oportunidad de ganar dinero y se dedicó a esta actividad, haciéndose pasar por una persona honesta.

“Fue una decepción muy grande” resaltó, ellos (la pareja) se daban muy buena vida en Rosarito, porque además se quedaban con viviendas de personas americanas que fallecían y sus propiedades no eran reclamadas, así que las rentaban pero si aparecía algún familiar, la entregaban sin problemas.

Dijo que la pareja era muy servicial, no se metía en problemas con nadie y por eso la sospecha de que pudieran ser malas personas, nunca cayó sobre ellos.

Este hecho mencionó, alerta a los inmobiliarios porque la comunidad extranjera aquí es muy grande y ellos se mezclan muy bien y después de los 6, 7, meses de convivencia pasan desapercibidos, de tal suerte que nadie se pregunta por su pasado.

Además, como en el caso de esta pareja las sospechas eran nulas, porque pertenecían a la asociación Foot Printers, de ex policías norteamericanos que ayudan en varias tareas a la comunidad.

ROSARITO, Baja California - In Rosarito, Randy Mark Yaker, one of the 15 most wanted men by the U.S. Marshals and his wife, Jessica Mary Dorian, passed themselves off as a respectable couple, composed of Steve and Margie Rothman, who worked in real estate and it was not until the State Preventative Police arrested them that their true identities were discovered along with their criminal links.

Wednesday, October 15, police agents arrested the individual, meanwhile his companion died as she was pursued by the police.

This notice rattled real estate agents, recalled Victor Loza, former state president of that group, who said that he met to couple in 2002, when they bought three homes and then rented out two of them to have income to live on.

He added that later Yager saw real estate as an opportunity to earn money and he worked in this activity, passing for an honest person.

"It was a huge disappointment," he said, the couple had a good life in Rosarito because in addition to taking over homes of American owners who had died and whose properties were not claimed, which they rented out, if a relative showed up, they gave it to them without problems.

He said that the couple was very helpful, did not have problems with anyone and so they were never suspected of being bad people.

This event, he said, alerted the real estate companies, because the foreign community here is very large and they mix very well, so after six or seven months of living here they are unnoticed, to such an extent that nobody asks about their past.

In addition, as in the case of this couple, suspicions were diminished because they belonged to the Foot Printers Association, make of former American policemen who help with various tasks in the community.

They blended nicely. Says a lot for that group of scalawags in Rosarito.

They didn't "pass themselves off" as a respectable couple- other expats and the Footprinters gave them that distinction.   So he made a living taking over dead expats homes and renting them out? (but giving them to family if they showed up).  Nice business plan for a murderer.  He buys three houses on arrival and rents out two to live on under the radar from immigration and the police.  And they LOVE this guy?  So long as you are part of the King Torres kingdom and real estate fraud system-  you are a model citizen... even if you are a murderer.  And Tila's friend no less.  This is why they should make all expats show their immigration papers. 

Any word on what the lady intended to do with all the police ID's they found on her?

The wanted and the unwanted.  I guess these two fall under the former.

I too like the business model that made them "respectable". I believe Janene is now attempting to take a page right out of their play book.  Befriend old ex pats, find out about their family situation, and then let nature take its course, with a little help if the right situation presents itself. Then whisk the body off to the morgue, before anyone is the wiser. Sounds like a money maker.

Arrest of Fugitive Biker Gang Leader Shakes Baja Expat Community

By Lawrence Trimble, October 25, 2014

A 17-year-long manhunt for a wanted US biker gang leader ended in dramatic fashion in a sleepy beach town in Baja California after the man's longtime companion apparently shot herself during his arrest, Mexican officials said.

Fugitive Randy Mark Yager, a former head of the upper Midwestern chapter of the violent Outlaws biker gang, and his girlfriend Margie Jelovcic, had been living a tranquil life as integrated members of a tight-knit community of American expatriates and retirees in Rosarito, 20 miles south of the US-Mexico border.

On October 15, the couple were relaxing and drinking at La Maroma, a bar styled to look like a beach shack at the entrance of the town known for spring breakers and booze. Witnesses said the pair were there to "eat steak and drink beer."

Acting on information provided by the US Marshals, Baja state police officers arrived at the bar and confronted a man matching Yager's description. He initially identified himself as David Michael Dorian and produced IDs with that name.

Jelovcic too was questioned, but was initially let go, Mexican authorities said, as she was not the target of the manhunt.

According to witnesses who spoke to VICE News in exclusive interviews, as Yager discussed his identity with the two Mexican officers, they discovered he was carrying a firearm. At that point, Jelovcic suddenly fled the restaurant and drove off, leading other officers posted outside to chase her in patrol units.

Authorities and witnesses said Jelovcic drove north in the direction of the couple's home in a gated community called Real del Mar. After a few miles, she made a U-turn and attempted to return to the scene.

After taking a highway off-ramp, Jelovcic lost control of her vehicle, flipped three times, and was found dead beside her car, Baja state police said.

"It happened in minutes," Adrian Garcia Estrada, public affairs chief for the Baja California state police, told VICE News. "The woman fled in her vehicle, and moments later — after an intense high-speed chase — lost her life."

Yager then confessed his identity and submitted to the arrest.

Initial reports suggested Jelovcic survived until she reached the hospital, but state authorities said that she was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. She was found lying near her vehicle with a fake ID on her person, a gun nearby, and what officials described as a self-inflicted bullet wound to the head.

"They were always packing — packing heat, though, not suitcases as you would expect from someone on the run," one bar regular, a friend close to the couple, told VICE News. "They had a suicide pact. If it went down, they would both do it. Margie honored the pact, but he didn't. He's still breathing."

The US Marshals heralded Yager's arrest as a satisfactory end to a long case. He was delivered to US authorities in San Diego and appeared in federal court on Monday.

"Randy Mark Yager is accused of several horrendous crimes that landed him on our 15 Most Wanted List," Stacia Hylton, the US Marshals director, said in a statement issued the day after his arrest. "I am proud to say that today he has become another violent fugitive we have taken off the streets."

Steve and Margie Rothman, as the couple were known to their neighbors before last week, were well-known among residents of the half-dozen gated communities that dot the six-mile stretch of beach just north of Rosarito.

The pair did handyman work of all kinds, and built up a steady clientele for odd jobs and house watching over the course of their long residency in the Baja community.

"If you were going away for a week or a few months, you'd drop off the keys with Steve and Margie and they'd look after the place for you, and lay tile or fix the plumbing or wiring while you were gone," said a neighbor who had known them for more than a decade.

Friends described the couple as inseparable.

"They were very much in love," Chris Romero, 67, who first met the pair six years ago, told VICE News on Friday at the bar where Yager was captured. "I never once saw them without each other."

For years before his life in Rosarito, Randy Mark "Mad" Yager led the Chicago, Indiana, and Wisconsin chapters of the Outlaws biker gang. He was indicted in 1997 on charges of racketeering, murder, possession of drugs and explosives, fraud, and other crimes stemming from a longtime rivalry with factions of the Hells Angels.

Yager met Jelovcic in their hometown of Gary, Indiana, a few months before they vanished in 1997.

The couple were the subject of an episode of the television program Unsolved Mysteries, which first aired on September 4, 2001, entitled "Fugitive Biker Outlaw," and detailed his run from justice and her disappearance.

Jelovcic, to the surprise of those who knew her locally in Baja California, had been a widowed concert violinist before meeting Yager. Several family members told VICE News they were shocked to hear of what had become of now-deceased Jelovcic since her disappearance.

"She fell off the face of the earth," one family member said of Jelovcic. "It was extremely difficult for the family to accept."

"She was loved," another relative said. "From the day she left she never had any contact with anybody again. It hurts."

In a beach town where the normal attire is shorts, T-shirts, and sandals, the pair stood out in another way.

Yager dressed in work boots and denim coveralls over long-sleeved checked flannel shirts, buttoned at the wrist — to hide a body covered in neo-Nazi and biker tattoos, friends have now learned. Locals described "Steve" as a jolly, Santa Claus type, with a full beard, ruddy face, and a twinkle in his eye. The 58-year-old was "built like an oil drum," one friend said.

Jelovcic, often in pigtails and 11 years his junior, wore no makeup, very plain clothes, and friends say "could have passed for Amish." Together, among the backdrop of a Hawaiian shirt beach crowd, "Steve and Margie" were described as "country bumpkins," one local said.

By Thursday morning, word had spread in the community. Rosarito expats were meeting at their usual spots, asking the same question: "Did you hear what happened to Steve and Margie?"

And by the weekend, video had begun to circulate of a grim-faced, shackled Randy Yager escorted by two US Marshals to a detention center in San Diego, soon to begin the first leg in a legal journey that will ultimately take him to Wisconsin to face charges.

While not the first time American fugitives have been arrested in Baja, what is remarkable is just how long this pair managed to hide in plain view and become dearly loved friends and neighbors to those who knew them during their time in Mexico.

"They were smart," a local retiree said. "They gained the friendship and trust of the people around them. It was manipulative behavior, the entire piece."

Margie's mother, Katie Jelovcic, spoke with VICE News on Monday over the phone, from her family's diner in Gary, Indiana.

"My heart's been broken from all the years I lived in hope and hoping, but you know there's just no hope no more," Katie Jelovcic said over the phone with a slight Croatian lilt. "I mean, what can I do? I've been thinking and praying for 17 years. I'm just out of everything."

So expats knew all along these two were gun-packing bad news, and still enjoyed their company at the bar.  Sheeesh.
