Deadly Duo: Joe Luis Garay Jr and Kevin Jerome Carlson stabbed and killed 16-year-old Troy Gorena; Sentenced to 15 years to life in prison


Troy Alan Gorena

Joe Luis Garay has a parole hearing on October 7, 2021. That will not be even close to the 15 years that is the minimum for him to serve. If you would like to oppose his possible parole, here is a letter you can use: CA Board of Parole Garay hearing

RE: Joe Luis Garay
ID#: AN 7133

On March 5, 1996, Troy Gorena was walking down the street to go to a friend’s house when Kevin Carlson walked by him. Kevin took his child home and picked up Joe Luis Garay, who had a knife with him. They went back to where Troy was walking and Joe got out of the car and asked Troy where he was from. Troy responded that he was from Fullerton and turned to walk away. Joe stabbed him in the back several times. He was taken to the hospital and went into surgery but he never came out. This heinous, violent crime came about through Joe Luis Garay’s gang associations.

Garay was convicted of murder and sentenced to 15 years to life in prison. He will have only served 8 years when he is considered for parole.

I STRONGLY OPPOSE parole for Joe Luis Garay. Justice demands he serve the full prison term of life given to him at the time he was sentenced for this heinous crime. If released, the chances that he will violently reoffend is high. Society does not deserve to have him back with his freedom, know he could once again tear another family or community apart.

Thank you for your time.
