Arrest in 2006 Juan Cuevas murder: “John Blocker, 43, is accused of killing Juan Cuevas inside his Saddlebrook Way home Jan. 20, 2006, the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office said at a news conference.”
The Courier Post further tells us that: “He is being held in Philadelphia on charges of first-degree murder, first-degree felony, four counts of kidnapping, second-degree robbery and second-degree burglary.” The authorities said that there does not seem to be a connection between Juan Cuevas and Blocker.
On January 20, 2006, Juan “June” M. Cuevas, the owner of G.I. June Auto Parts, was murdered in Washington Township by four people who invaded his home.
His wife of twenty years was not home (she was at work) but his three teenagers were. Their hands and feet were bound together. They were placed in an upstairs bathroom where they were held hostage for several hours while the invaders waited for their father to come home.
When Juan Cuevas came home that evening he was beaten to death in his own bedroom. The four invaders fled.
According to CBS Philadelphia “Blocker is being held on one million dollars cash bail.”
ABC notes that “It wasn’t known Monday if Blocker has retained an attorney.”
Fox added that “The case remains open as police continue to search for Blocker’s accomplices.”
I will follow the case and update this post as soon as Blocker goes to trial.
