A Glen Ellyn man who remains at large has been formally indicted for the October 2011 murder of his ex-wife, DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin announced Wednesday.
Juan M. Granados, 34, is charged with the slaying and sexual assault of Nancy Bustos, who was found dead on Oct. 16 in her Glen Ellyn apartment
Her body was discovered by police, who came to the residence at 19 Briar Street to conduct a well-being check. Once there, police found Bustos’ body in the bathroom. She had been sexually assaulted and strangled, according to authorities.
Police allege that Granados and Bustos, 36, were in the apartment sometime on the evening of Oct. 15 or early in the morning on Oct. 16 when the attack took place. Granados fled and has not been located, police said.
A DuPage County grand jury indicted Granados in late June, but the indictment was kept sealed at the request of U.S. Marshals, who are attempting to locate Granados, DuPage County state’s attorney spokesman Paul Darrah said.
Authorities hope that release of the indictment now may generate new leads in the search, Darrah said.
According to court documents, the couple married in 2000, had two children, and were divorced in 2010. Bustos had gone to court in 2004 to get an order of protection, alleging that Granados had battered her and had threatened to take her daughter away from Bustos to Mexico.
“Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women in the United States,” Berlin said. “The negative effect on all family members, especially children, can be devastating when, as is alleged in this case, a case of suspected domestic violence turns into a murder.”
A no-bond arrest warrant has been issued for Granados. Anyone with information regarding Granados’s whereabouts is urged to call the Glen Ellyn Police Department at 630-469-1187 or the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office at 630-407-8000.
Thoughts? As far as possible whereabouts are concerned- I gathered this information from a few of the news sources- Granados was initially believed to have possibly fled to Mexico, where he has another home, however he also has family in the Chicago area as well as a brother in Texas. Although he could have changed vehicles by now, at the time of the murder, Mr. Grandos was driving a black 4 door, 1992 BMW 325i, liscense plate # L655003
Anyway, this crime angers me a lot. It's bad enough this is a woman he had children with that he allegedly brutally murdered, but then he had to allegedly sexually assault her as well.
Whether Granados is in Mexico or elsewhere, I believe he can be caught. Whether it's by the general public or the US Marshals who are trying to track him down.
