Funeral for Jocelyn Nungaray: Mattress Mack to Host Service Amid Outcry Over Immigration Policies**

 

Houston's 'Mattress Mack' Offers to Cover Funeral Costs for Jocelyn Nungaray, Allegedly Killed by Illegal Immigrants

Houston, TX - The funeral for Jocelyn Nungaray, the 12-year-old Houston girl tragically killed by two illegal immigrants and left for dead in a creek, is set for Thursday. Jim McIngvale, known locally as "Mattress Mack," is covering the costs of the service and will host a celebration of Nungaray's life at one of his Gallery Furniture locations.

 

Nungaray was found strangled to death last week near a creek, a crime that has shocked and angered local officials, spurring intense discussions about the Biden administration's border policies. Days after the June 16 attack, Harris County prosecutors charged two illegal immigrants from Venezuela — Johan Jose Rangel Martinez, 21, and Franklin Jose Peña Ramos, 26 — with capital murder. Authorities revealed that the pair lured Nungaray under a bridge, sexually assaulted her for two hours, and then killed her.

 

"She would have gone to the same high school two of my children graduated from had she made it that far. This is obviously a gut-wrenching story. So, I was more than happy to take care of the funeral arrangements," McIngvale told Fox News Digital. "Regardless of how you feel about migrants — illegal or legal — if they wouldn't have been here, she would still be alive."

 

Authorities disclosed that Ramos was wearing a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) ankle monitor at the time of Nungaray's murder.

 

Houston Mayor John Whitmire has voiced concerns about the Harris County criminal justice system's ability to prosecute the suspects effectively. At a news conference, Whitmire stated, "We're going to be watching you; the arrests have taken place, and the charges have been filed. Now, we want the justice system to do its job. If there was ever a circumstance where you do not give someone bail, this is it." Bail for both men was set at $10 million.

 

McIngvale expressed frustration over the lengthy wait for murder cases to go to trial in Harris County, explaining that families endure repeated court appearances with continual postponements. "The families have to go to five or six hearings as they postpone, postpone, postpone, and there's the perpetrator laughing and yucking it up with his family and his lawyers," McIngvale said. "He's probably out on bail. It's just madness."

 

McIngvale, who has a history of aiding victims of crimes and natural disasters in Houston, emphasized that criminals are not being prosecuted to the fullest extent in Harris County, contrasting it with nearby Montgomery County where he believes offenders are more consistently held accountable.

 

In response to Nungaray's murder, Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has called for Martinez and Ramos to be sentenced to death if convicted. "This is horrifying. If guilty, both of these men should receive the death penalty for this horrible crime," Cruz wrote last week on X. "These men are illegal aliens and Jocelyn Nungaray would still be alive and with her family if not for Joe Biden’s open border policies. The Biden administration is directly responsible. My heart goes out to Jocelyn’s family."
