ID Go: In Miami, a young mother has no choice but to shut the door on her warring neighbors as a three-year feud over a patch of land and differing moral standards reaches a bloody and tragic conclusion. -Home’s Where the Hearse Is, Fear Thy Neighbor (S1, E5)

Retiree Baldomero Fernandez, 62, murdered Army veteran James Escoto, 29, in Miami, Florida on October 4, 1986. Fernandez claimed self-defense but the evidence said otherwise. Fernandez shot Jimmy multiple times and then bashed his head in with a rock to kill him. Jimmy’s son believes this homicide was pre-meditated. After a plea deal, Baldomero Fernandez was convicted of second degree murder and sentenced to 7 years in prison but he only served 3 years.

  1. Baldomero Fernandez serving 3 years was a joke!!! It’s ok though because he’ll have a much higher power to answer to and he’ll WISH he was in that prison instead of burning in hell for eternity for what he did to Mr Escoto!!! To those who helped release this “upstanding citizen”, I wouldn’t turn my back to that mean old evil bastard if I were any of you! Typical injustice at its finest on behalf of the Escoto family! How pathetic! RIP James Escoto♥️
