A day after graduating from college with a perfect 4.0 grade point average, Sarah Root was killed while sitting at a stoplight in Omaha, Nebraska.

Edwin Mejia barreled his truck into the back of Root’s vehicle while street-racing with a 0.241% blood alcohol level, three times the legal limit.

He was also an illegal immigrant from Honduras.

“They thought he was going to flee, so they had a police officer posted outside of [his] room to take him directly to jail after he was released from the hospital,” Sarah’s mother, Michelle Root, told The Washington Times in a phone interview from her home in Iowa.

Mejia’s custody was short-lived, however. A judge let him post $5,000 cash bail, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said Root was still alive at that point so Mejia didn’t rise to the level of mandatory detention.

Now Mejia is one of seven fugitives on a brand new “most wanted” list created by ICE’s Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) office. President Trump opened the office in 2017 to help victims and families affected by crimes committed by people with links to immigration.
