Updated August 3rd 2008 – Israel Mireles to be extradited
I haven’t updated this story in quite some time but thought it time to go ahead and do so. Mexico finally granted extradition of Israel Mireles, the murderer of Emily Sander/Zoey Zane back in June. Mireles was arrested by Mexican authorities back in December of last year but they have just now gotten around to extraditing him. Shortly after granting extradition Mireles appealed to a higher court in Mexico. Normally that will take three to four months so hopefully by October we should know something.
Just as soon as I get more information I will post it here.
Make sure and leave a comment below and let me know what you think about this story.
Apparently a body found about 50 miles east of El Dorado matches the description of missing college student/secret porn star Emily Sander/Zoey Zane. The investigators are current refusing to give any details about the state of the body or how it was found.
Police Chief Tom Boren is insisting that her Internet activity as Zoey Zane has no connection whatsoever with her disappearance.
Boren also said that the cause of death is not yet known but that an autopsy is planned.
Police have interviewed family members of Israel Mireles and feel that they know where he is but they are not sharing that information with authorities.
This is the approximate location where the body that may be Emily Sander was found:
According to KWCH in Kansas this is now a homicide investigation and the chief suspect is Israel Mireles.
Anyone that may have information that may be helpful to this case is asked to contact the El Dorado Police Department at 1-800-KS-CRIME
I found out why ZoeyZane.com was offline last night when I tried to get there. It has been set up as a page with information about the disappearance and a possible reward that someone (I assume the family) is trying to get set up.
We currently are working with a local bank in Kansas to setup a reward fund for the capture of Isreal Mireles. Please check back to this url for updated info…..
18-year-old Emily Sander was a college student from Kansas who was missing for nearly a week after Thanksgiving weekend. She was last seen leaving a bar in El Dorado, Kansas about 30 miles from Wichita, with a man identified by police as Israel Mireles, 24 years old, authorities said. El Dorado police found evidence of foul play after entering Mireles’ hotel room where he was living. A nationwide hunt went on to find Emily. Emily was a beautiful, young spunky girl – 5’3″ at 105 pounds. She had shoulder length brown hair and blue eyes that could light up the room. She had just started college and was looking forward to getting her degree so she could move back home to Texas where all her friends and family were. Sadly, Emily’s body was found 50 miles East of where she was last seen with Mireles, on Thursday, November 29, 2007 around 2:30pm near toronto Lake in Kansas. Emily’s life ended too soon. Her case was quickly updated to a homicide, and a nationwide manhunt is now under way for Mireles and his 16-year-old pregnant girlfriend, who both started on the run just after Emily’s disappearance, known to be heading South. Mireles was driving a 2007 Ford Taurus rental car, which turned up Tuesday, November 27 in Texas, just near where he had family. Authorities believe that he is either trying to cross the Texas border to Mexico, or have already crossed the border. He also has family ties in Mexico.
It truly saddens us to see, in this day and age, that we still live in a society that ridicules a women for doing something that is completely legal. There was some incorrect information leaked to the press yesterday by a unknown individual named “David Thomas” claiming to have information about Emily’s “Porn” career. We want to set the record straight. Emily was a solo nude model whose site went live September,25 2007. She was exactly that – a solo girl. There was no interaction between Emily with any Male. It was just Emily, her fun loving personality, and the camera. We decided, a day before the media reports came out about Emily’s “porn” career, to take down her website out of respect to Emily and Emily’s family. We were unaware if Emily’s family knew of the site and didn’t want to add any unneeded stress or burden to them. The last thing we wanted was for her case to turn into a “missing porn star” case, which is exactly what the media turned it in to, which sadly took away the focus of Emily’s disappearance and the importance of finding Isreal Mireles.
If you have any information of the whereabouts of Isreal Mireles, please call El Dorado Police at 316-321-9120. Please do not call the police unless you have direct information on this case, the police are working hard to track down Israel Mireles, and unnecessary calls only hinder their efforts.
