Deadly Duo: Dulie Alonzo Green and Victor Pestano raped and murdered Beverly Jackson; Sentenced to life in prison

Beverly JacksonFrom Victor Pestano appeal: In 1995, the victim’s body was found in the trunk of her automobile, submerged in a canal.   An autopsy revealed that the victim died from blunt trauma to the head and from drowning.   The autopsy also revealed the presence of semen in the victim’s vagina.   Miami-Dade police detectives investigated this case for a period of time, but were unable to develop any leads or clues as to the perpetrator(s).

In 2003, the police received a call implicating Pestano and co-defendant Dulie Alonzo Green, Jr., in this crime.   The informant gave the police a sworn statement that these men had admitted to abducting, robbing, and raping the victim.   The police got a search warrant to obtain saliva samples from the men for DNA testing.

The police went to Pestano’s house to serve the warrant.   Pestano was not home when the officers arrived;  they decided to wait.   When Pestano arrived, the police identified themselves and asked Pestano to accompany them to the station.   Pestano asked to change his clothes;  thereafter, at about 6:30 a.m., he rode to the station with the officers.1  The detective did not produce the search warrant and did not rely on it.

At the station, Pestano was placed in a wired interview room.   Pestano was read his Miranda rights.   He signed a written waiver and consented to providing a DNA sample.   At about 7:40 a.m., the police began interrogating Pestano and the co-defendant separately.   Each man gave opposing accounts of the events:  each said that he picked the other man up in a car with an unknown female passenger in the front seat.   Each claimed he had sex with the female in exchange for the other man letting her go;  each said he left, leaving her with the other man.

Pestano asked to speak with Dulie Green.   The police permitted the men to speak to each other.   They were placed in a room together;  their conversation was video and audio taped.   The men agreed to a version of the story that placed the blame on a third person, who was deceased.   They agreed to say that they left the victim alone with the third person.

After the co-defendants conferred, they were again interviewed separately.   Pestano was re-advised of his Miranda rights.   After further interrogation, Pestano gave a sworn statement.   The statement contained Pestano’s original statement and the purportedly “true” version:  The co-defendants were walking with a third man.   The third man jumped into the woman’s car and ordered them to get in front.   The three men drove to the park where the co-defendants got out of the car.   Thereafter, the third man got out of the car and said the victim had agreed to have sex with them.   The co-defendants then departed, leaving the victim with the third man.   At that point, the interrogation concluded.

Prior to trial, Pestano filed a motion to suppress or exclude the video/audio tape of the conversation between the co-defendants, a motion to suppress or exclude the confession, and a motion to suppress/exclude the statements and evidence based on an unlawful arrest.   At the hearing on the motions, the court found that Pestano was not arrested when he was picked up at his house, and denied the latter motion accordingly.   The court denied the motion to suppress the videotaped conversation on the grounds that there was no expectation of privacy in a police interview room and that the admission of the tape did not deprive Pestano of his right of confrontation.

At trial, the state presented DNA evidence, physical evidence from the crime scene and forensic evidence regarding the murder.   Pestano’s defense was that he merely had consensual sex with the victim.   Pestano requested that the court give an independent act jury instruction.   The court declined the request.   The jury convicted defendant as charged, without a firearm.

  1. Tamron Hall’s episode was amazing. I feel so sorry for this family. At the same time, I feel sorry for the two defendants. They were only 15, and they did not commit any offenses after this (and only one had committed a crime before this). One day in the lives of two teenagers changed so many people. Sad.

    • These two pieces of shitt I hope burn in hell who cares they was 15 both made the decision to rape robbed murder this poor woman

      • I have a 16 year old. He absolutely knows right from wrong, and is fully responsible for all of his actions. Being 15 and 16 is no excuse for what they did. They are monsters, end of story.

    • What are you talking about George? These scumbags killed and raped an innocent girl. They need to spend a good 50 years in prison before anyone even thinks of letting them out. These 2 guys are obviously savages if they are able to rape and beat a girl to death.

    • A 15 year old knows what dead means and they know what murder means. Your brain does not kick on when you turn 21! If they had the common sense to murder this poor woman, because they thought she heard one of their names, then they knew what they were doing, when they pushed her car into the water, killing her. The were well over the age of knowing …should have been over the age of knowing right from wrong and then to talk about it like they are taking about cheating on a test. These two maggot shits are where they belong, locked up for life, because Beverly Jackson is dead forever.

  2. That poor woman was pumping her gas in her car and getting a hot coffee and these two fucktards killed/raped her now her family has 2 live their lives without her forever poor ms jackson

  3. That’s exactly right. Who cares they were only 15. Let’s stop justifying these kids who start killing early in their lives.They knew what they were doing. Julie even got mad when the other creep mentioned his name.He knew she could identify him.

  4. I am glad these guys were caught. They may have been dormant for years but I think they would resume their murderous and evil deeds later. These guys are dangerous to society.

  5. Who cares if they didn’t commit anything else after this, they committed murder, they took an innocent person’s life how can anyone feel sorry for them. God says Thy Shall Not Kill

  6. The only man in this story that my heart goes out to is the friend john,he is a hero for coming forth with the information that put those two in prison where they belong.Don’t forget about john because without him the case would not be solved and the family would not have closure.

    • I agree with Renee. “John” is a hero for doing the right thing and coming foward with the information. It’s really sad that his own family has shunned him because he went against the “code of the streets” and spoke to the police. Just think about how many murders could be solved if people had the courage, strength, and heart of “John.” May Beverly Jackson rest in peace.
      As for the two murderers, they may have only been fifteen but most fifteen year olds don’t commit such brutal heinous acts. They still had many years left to live. They were dangers to society. Who knows what they would have done if they weren’t caught for Beverly Jackson’s murder?

  7. Why is my comment not posting?
