Illegal immigrant, Alan Mogollon-Anaya, who killed a mother of three is the subject of a nationwide manhunt which is getting little media attention. Now the victim's mother is begging for people on social media to do what the national media refuses to do, and get his face everywhere so he has nowhere to hide.
Alan Mogollon-Anaya's blood alcohol was at a level of .20%, 2.5 times the legal limit, when he killed Shirra Branum and injured three children. On March 16th, he drove drunk with his children in the car, causing a collision which killed the mother of three. It was his 4th DUI related offense.
Mogollon-Anaya, was out on bond at the time awaiting a deportation hearing.
After the collision, Mogollon-Anaya was being treated at Johnson City Medical Center for several days. He then fled from the hospital before authorities could arrest him.
Alan Mogollon-Anaya sent several text messages to family members to try to make police believe he was in Mexico. However, authorities are confident that he is hiding out somewhere in the United States. Mogollon-Anaya has family members all over the U.S. and he could be anywhere.
Shirra Branum's mother, Cindy Scalf, has raised $2,000 for a reward for information leading to Mogollon-Anaya's capture. She has taken to social media to ask people to do what the national media has largely refused to do - get Alan Mogollon-Anaya's picture in front of everybody:
I am [writing] in regard to my 37 year old daughter, Shirra Nicole Branum, who was killed on March 16, 2017 in a head on collision by an illegal Hispanic drunk driver, (Alan Jacob Mogollon-Anaya), in Washington County Tennessee. He also critically injured my 9 year old grandson as well as 3 of his own children, (all under the age of 5), who he didn't even have in car seats. This was Anaya's 4th offense DUI.
We have been told that Anaya has family in at least 5 states. Lord only knows where he is. We are looking for justice for our daughter. The sheriffs office and the local news is calling it a nationwide man hunt with TBI, FBI, Homeland Security and Border Patrol involved but it is on no national network.
We are turning to anyone and everyone we can to get this on national news. We want him caught and put behind bars for his horrendous acts! He is out here being a coward and running free while our baby girl is in her grave. We are so broken with grief we can barely make it from one day to the next.
My heart breaks for my grandchildren: the oldest 17-years-old, getting ready to graduate high school and start college; the middle child 13-years-old, getting ready to go to her first prom; and the youngest, 10-years-old, (9 at the time of the accident and was in the car with her), whose dream is to become a veterinarian; none of which my daughter will get to be a part.
My heart breaks for my son-in-law who has lost his soul mate of 22 years and is now a disabled single parent. They have to live the rest of their lives, just as we do, without Shirra.
My grandson told me when the accident happened his mom kept praying for the Lord to be with them and be with her baby boy. She was apologizing to him and he told her it wasnt her fault and that he still needed her (he could tell she was dying).
We want Anaya caught and punished before he destroys anymore lives.
Respectfully, Cindy Scalf
