[Excerpts] Former FBI Agent from San Diego, Edward Preciado-Nuño, brutally murdered a 31year-old mother of four, Kimberly Ann Long, by beating her to death with a claw hammer. Most defendants in similar scenarios would be denied, languishing in prison until their trial date. Incredibly, [Edward] Preciado-Nuño is awaiting trial from the comfort of his home, having posted a low $250,000.00 dollar bond. Edward Preciado-Nuño is a brother of Oscar Preciado – former Port Director for the San Ysidro Port of Entry (the largest and busiest land border crossing in the United States). Oscar Preciado still works at the same Port of Entry as a Special Project Manager for the Department of Homeland Security’s Bureau of Customs and Border Protection. After Edward Preciado-Nuño murdered Kimberly Long, Oscar Preciado traveled to Las Vegas in a show of support for his brother... Preciado-Nuño’s trial was originally scheduled for July 28, 2009, but has been delayed three times... Kimberly Long and Jeffrey Preciado have gotten into a fight several days before her murder...  Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Abbi Silver said she "smelled a rat" when she looked over the paperwork. "There are some really weird facts in this case"... Long's 9-year-old son and the couple's 10-month-old son were at home when their mother was murdered. It is unclear whether either child witnessed the grisly scene...Kimberly’s close friend, Francesca Velgos, didn't believe Preciado-Nuño’s claim that Long attacked him. She said that Kimberly, a 31-year-old mother of four, was a non-confrontational, peaceful person. Kimberly’s disposition and physical strength does not match Preciado-Nuño’s claim that she attacked him with a hammer. "She couldn't even open a jar of pickles," Velgos said... Media requests have been granted and the cameras will be allowed in the courtroom during the trial that is now set to commence on December 6, 2010 at 1:30 PM... [Full article here]

  1. The latest in this case: a featured story printed this week in the San Diego Reader:

    Las Vegas Murder
    Detectives followed a trail that traversed the kitchen, then continued across the dining room and through the hallway. The bloody footprints faded noticeably with each step up the staircase. More bloody footprints led to the outside of the garage. These trails would later lead the detectives to hidden evidence.The rising garage door revealed Jeffrey Preciado’s father, covered in his victim’s blood. Former FBI agent Edward Preciado-Nuño stood over the lifeless body of Kimberly Ann Long. The 31-year-old mother lay in a pool of blood on the cold garage floor. Two bloody claw hammers were on the floor nearby. Staring at the detectives, Preciado-Nuño said, “She hit me with a hammer, so I hit her back.” The smaller hammer allegedly used by Kimberly was found beside her left hand. She was right-handed.
