The Watsonville Police Department announced the final chapter in a murder incident –
“Today, justice was served as convicted murderer Michael Escobar was sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison.
In 2014, Escobar shot and killed 4-year-old Jaelyn Zavala and 33-year-old Ramon Rendon.
This has been one of the most heartbreaking cases that has impacted our entire community, but more importantly, the victims’ families who have had to endure this for the last five years. We know there isn’t a sentence high enough to erase the pain these families are feeling. We continue to have the families in our thoughts and prayers.
