Police from the Bolivar, Missouri Police Department responded to a call reporting shots fired at a private residence in Bolivar on March 23. The police arrived at approximately 5:30 AM and found Joshua Shawn Philips, a 35-year-old man, dead at the scene from a gunshot wound, according to a report by KY3. The suspect had already fled.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, and the FBI were called in to track the suspect down. The Bolivar police needed help due to the unusual nature of the case. “A lot of sheriff’s departments and local police agencies, the small municipalities just don’t have the budget to obtain the specialized investigative equipment, or the tactical equipment necessary to take on an armed suspect,” Bolivar Police Chief Mark Webb told KY3.

Four hours later, police arrested a suspect: a Hispanic man named Michael Ybarra, according to another report by KY3. Ybarra has the number 13 tattooed on his face, which police believe could be a gang symbol.

Ybarra has been booked into the Polk County Jail. The Polk County public prosecutor has charged him with murder in the first degree.

Investigators at the scene of the murder discovered that a can of paint had been knocked over. They later found boots stained with paint in Ybarra’s home.

The Bolivar police reported that Ybarra has been involved in other incidents in the area. At the time of Philips’ murder, Ybarra was out on bond from charges pertaining to another shooting in Texas. He also has a criminal history in California.

  1. Where’s Dirty Harry when you need him. The suspect is beyond suspicion. The paint on his boots found at the suspect’s home confirmed his presence at the murder scene. There must have been an Angel there to place a mark on the murderer for recognition latter on when the Spirit of Justice swept through the area. Suspect is wanted in other States, what other proof is needed he’s guilty. He evades ICE because he is not documented, falling in between the cracks of Justice. How many more Americans need to die to persuade the protesters that this murderer needs to be removed from the face of the earth. Or better yet let some of the protesters provide lodging in their own homes to comfort their souls about injustice for illegal immigrants. What say you protesters ?

  2. keep letting the bastards out let um kill kill kill no justice anymore crying liberals democrats see to that,hilliary,billy boy,pelosi,waters none will ever go to jail and lets not forget obama

    “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).

  4. If Yberra is “suspected” of murder, WHY has he been released on bond? This simply creates added danger to the public at large.

  5. Texas charges this slim ball and he was free to go Missouri and kill. Send them all back, every illegal. Americans die and they go free. Something is wrong here.

  6. Why the surprise???? The Dems allowed many gang members in under Obozo and they go ignored.

  7. Has the democratic machine started a go fund me page and come to the rescue of this poor abused model citizen yet?

  8. That is the reason that the wall needs to built and there needs to be fines levied equal to what it costs taxpayers in expense to apprehend the criminals in addition to penalties assessed due to the nature of the crime. Every Congress person who votes against securing the borders should be removed from office and tried for treason. I bet the Democrats and Rhinos don’t bring that to a vote of the people.

  9. This has to be FAKE NEWS because every Democrat in the country claims that we have a mass incarceration problem that predominantly affect people of color. Therefore since this person is a person of color with a known criminal history quite obviously he is/was still being held unfairly behind bars. Besides Nancy claims that MS-13 is divine.
