A Papa John’s Pizza driven by religious zealotry, anti-Biden fury and satanic delusions, shot a family of attorneys inside their El Paso home in November because he thought they were ‘pro-choice Jewish Satan worshippers,’ according to investigators.
The wife was killed, while the husband was left gravely injured in the unprovoked attack by Joseph Angel Alvarez in November, 2020.
Alvarez, 38, was arrested outside his job at a local Papa John’s after a SWAT team took him into custody, law enforcement officials told The Daily Beast.
Alvarez is the suspect in the fatal shooting of Georgette Kaufmann, 50, and the wounding of her husband, Daniel L. Kaufmann, 47, in their home in the Manhattan Heights section of El Paso on the night of November 14.
The arrest of Alvarez who is being held on a $2.5million bond at El Paso County Jail, was confirmed on Wednesday.
The Kaufmanns are both lawyers who worked for the Texas Attorney General’s Office. According to an obituary, Georgette was an assistant attorney general in the Child Support Division in El Paso for seven years.
Daniel was an assistant attorney general with the same division From 2010 until 2014. He rejoined the office in 2016 and worked there until 2019.
Court documents indicate that Alvarez held ‘extremist religious beliefs’. He is also alleged to have targeted the couple because he thought they voted for Joe Biden in the recent election.
Alvarez is said to have told investigators that he targeted the Kaufmanns’ home because he believed that he was ‘executing and exterminating the pro-choice Jewish Satan worshippers.’
The home is located on the 3000 block of Copper Avenue near Memorial Park.
Alvarez told police that he zeroed in on this specific area because he believed that the park was being used as a ‘ritualistic satanic ground to conduct abortions by manner of magic.’
According to the arrest affidavit, Alvarez was convinced that the families who lived in the four houses on the corner of Raynor Street and Copper Avenue near the park were part of a satanic cult.
‘The defendant’s belief was “to end the Satanic activity” near the crime scene (Memorial Park) and acted out his manifesto by killing and shooting the Kaufmanns and by mentally fabricating the connection he believed the four corner houses on Raynor and Copper to have been involved in “satanic activity,” because of their relative geographic location to the park,’ a police officer wrote in the affidavit.
Alvarez sent an email to an official US Army address on the night of the killing, investigators said.
In his emails Alvarez allegedly claimed that there were satanic rituals being held in the park, indicating that he planned on killing the residents of four nearby homes.
In the email, Alvarez demanded that people ‘stop all murder of babies.’
The suspect’s mail also made reference to former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden.
Alvarez is alleged to have taken photos of the couple’s driveway as well as other nearby homes and sent those pictures to the Army in his email.
According to investigators, Alvarez perpetrated the shootings at around 7:35pm on November 14.
He is alleged to have shot Georgette Kaufmann through a detached garage door as she returned home.
Police said that Daniel Kaufmann heard sounds at the door and was shot by Alvarez when he walked to the back door. As his wife lay bleeding to death in their garage, Daniel Kaufmann managed to get to a neighbor’s home and dialed 911.
Police later found Daniel Kaufmann wounded at his neighbor’s home. Georgette Kaufmann was pronounced dead at the scene.
Daniel suffered five gunshot wounds, being struck in the head, shoulder, and on the wrist. Daniel Kaufmann remains hospitalized, though there is no word as to his condition.
Investigators also found a Facebook page said to have belonged to Alvarez. In it, he describes being fired from an airport job after a female co-worker alleged that he was stalking her on his day off from work.
Police said that the woman complained that Alvarez approached her similarly to ‘how Georgette Kaufmann was approached and murdered, exiting her vehicle and by the driver side door.’
Investigators said they tracked down Alvarez after obtaining a Google geofence search warrant.
A geofence warrant allows law enforcement to search a database to find all active cell phone users within a particular geofence – or a virtual perimeter – area.
Using records from the night of the shooting, police narrowed down their search and eliminated all possible suspects. Investigators then discovered data from a device that was registered to a home in the 6200 block of Gila Road, which is just 10 minutes away from the Kaufmanns’ home.
A police affidavit identified Alvarez as the owner of the cell phone.
The shooting is still under investigation.
