Illegal Immigrant Accused of Suffocating Birthday Girl, Tossing Body in Shallow Grave

Share

An illegal immigrant from Ecuador came to Syracuse, New York, to celebrate the 21st birthday of a girl he knew from his home country.

Now, Jhon Moises Chacaguasay-Ilbis, 21, is charged with killing Joselyn Jhoana Toaquiza and burying her in a shallow grave before skipping town.

Chacaguasay-Ilbis was charged with second-degree murder and concealment of a human corpse, then locked up in the Onondaga County Justice Center jail, according to The Post-Standard.

Chacaguasay-Ilbis entered the U.S. illegally in January 2023 at El Paso, Texas, a Homeland Security source said, according to the New York Post.

Prosecutor Alphonse Williams said Chacaguasay-Ilbis was staying in an Airbnb near the park where Toaquiza’s body was found on Saturday, The Post-Standard noted.

Williams said the two had a connection from Ecuador, when they attended primary school together.

Video showed Chacaguasay-Ilbis entering the Airbnb around 4:20 p.m. on June 18 with Toaquiza, three hours later, he left, carrying her on his back.

It was unclear from the video if she was alive or dead at the time.

As Chacaguasay-Ilbis carried Toaquiza to the park where her body was found, he passed a police car that did not stop, according to WSYR-TV.

Williams said the Airbnb’s owner claimed blood was found at the home, The Post-Standard reported.

Chacaguasay-Ilbis eventually returned to the Airbnb, left with different clothes on, and took a Lyft minivan to the bus station before hopping a bus to New York City, Williams said.

Chacaguasay-Ilbis surrendered to police on Tuesday in the Rockland County community of Spring Valley, which is about 35 miles northwest of New York City.

Paul Toaquiza, the slain woman’s uncle, said his niece lived with his family, adding that they immigrated from Ecuador last year. The family’s immigration status was not revealed.



At his arraignment Thursday, Chacaguasay-Ilbis, speaking through a Spanish interpreter, said he was under the influence of alcohol and had no memory of the night Toaquiza died, according to WSYR-TV.

Christopher Renna, a coworker of Toaquiza, said the video raised his concerns, according to WSYR.

“I immediately recognized that there was something off about that situation and then, later in the day, when I asked for an update, it showed him coming back from the opposite direction without Joselyn and that… I instantly knew that was not, you know, a good situation,” he said.

WSYR reported that the victim was suffocated.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 

 

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.

 

Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.

 

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

 

All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.

 

Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 

 

A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.

 

We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight? 

 

Sincerely,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor
