Murderers of Pechanga Member Daunte Mercado Bates found GUILTY

These two animals snuffed out two lives and will have to pay for it.

Daunte Mercado Bates
Franko Daniel Bernal , 22, of El Cajon, and McCauley, 24, of La Mesa, who could face the death penalty, were convicted today of two murder charges in connection with the November 2006 deaths of Mercado-Bates, 18, and a convenience store clerk in Lemon Grove.

Daunte's sister, Sonserrie Camacho reports this: "After Bernal was found guilty on all charges including two counts of 1st degree murder. He had the nerve to say to me & my family "it's not gonna bring him back". " Happy Thanksgiving!"

He is truly unbelievable! A monster! All the time he's going to get in prison isn't going to bring him back either!!

It won't bring Daunte back, but it WILL keep a violent offender in prison where he belongs. Let's hope we see more justice for former Pechanga members.

Justice and a drop of sunshine on an otherwise dismal situation. But it will never replace the heartache the two families of the victims have had to endure and will always hold an empty place in their hearts.

Daunte couldn't have recieved justice, if it wasn't D.A. Romo & both Juries.
