    Father of slain Lumberton teen denied temporary visa into US for funeral

    Father of slain Lumberton teen denied temporary visa into US for funeral

    Updated: Dec 5, 2018 - 10:50 PM

    The father of a North Carolina teenager who was kidnapped and killed has been denied a visa to attend her funeral.

    Services for Hania Aguilar are set for Saturday in Lumberton.

    Hania’s father lives in Guatemala and needs a special visa to attend.

    About 10,000 people signed a petition, and Gov. Roy Cooper even got involved.

    Naimeh Salem, the father’s attorney, told Channel 9 the visa was denied.

    “They said he doesn’t have enough ties to the country to issue him a temporary visa to go to Hania's funeral,” Salem said.

    Salem said they are still holding out hope that U.S. officials will have a change of heart.

    Hania was taken from her home in early November.

    A petition to the Guatemalan Embassy is circulating online to get him a non-immigrant visa.

    "They want to see that you have no intent to remain here in the U.S. if you enter on a non-immigrant visa, so they're gonna look at things people don't realize, like your income, your bank accounts, your family members, all the things that would say you are going to return to your home country,” immigration attorney Stacey Maynor said.

    Maynor says Hania's father would need a special visa and a green card, and the process to get one of those visas could take weeks.

    “Even with enough support and contacting the right people to push it through, it is very unlikely that it's gonna happen in time for him to be here for the actual funeral,” Maynor said.



    There is still a $30,000 reward for information that leads investigators to the person who killed the 13-year-old.

    Last week, her body was found in the water about 10 miles away.

    Detectives are still searching for evidence that leads them to her killer.

    A petition to the Guatemalan Embassy is circulating online to get him a non-immigrant visa.

    "They want to see that you have no intent to remain here in the U.S. if you enter on a non-immigrant visa, so they're gonna look at things people don't realize, like your income, your bank accounts, your family members, all the things that would say you are going to return to your home country,” immigration attorney Stacey Maynor said.

    The man that committed the murder of this young girl needs to be caught. The sooner the better because if he would do this once, he could very well do it again!

    Arrest made in kidnapping and murder of 13-year-old Hania Aguilar

    ROBESON COUNTY, N.C. – The Lumberton Police Department and the FBI have arrested 34-year-old Michael Ray McLellan in connection with the kidnapping and murder of 13-year-old Hania Noelia Aguilar.

    McLellan was being held at the time of his arrest in law enforcement custody on charges unrelated to this case — possession of stolen firearms, kidnapping and probation violation.

    Now, the Lumberton Police Department has also charged McLellan with 10 felonies on the following state charges in connection with Hania’s death: first-degree murder, first-degree forcible rape, statutory rape of a person under 15 years of age, first-degree sexual offense, statutory sex offense with a person 15 years or younger, first-degree kidnapping, felony larceny, felony restraint, abduction of child, and concealment of a death.

    Hania was forced into a family member’s idling SUV and kidnapped from her driveway in the Rosewood Mobile Home Park in Lumberton on Nov. 5.

    The FBI’s Lab at Quantico conducted a forensic exam of the stolen SUV, recovered on Nov. 8. The North Carolina State Crime Lab provided preliminary test results on Hania’s body, located on Nov. 27. The results of those tests, including some received on Dec. 7, and a thorough criminal investigation resulted in the current charges.

    McLellan stood before a state magistrate at the Robeson County Detention Center in the early morning hours Saturday morning, Dec. 8.

    McLellan is currently being held in the Robeson County Detention Center with no bond. He will have his first court appearance at the Robeson County Courthouse on Monday at 9 a.m.

    The investigation is ongoing, additional charges could be filed as the case continues.

    Michael McLellan linked to unsolved 2016 rape case during investigation into kidnapping, murder of Hania Aguilar
    By Morgan Norwood

    ROBESON COUNTY, N.C. (WTVD) --

    The man accused of kidnapping and killing 13-year-old Hania Aguilar is now also charged in an unsolved rape from 2016, the Robeson County District Attorney's Office said Monday, thanks to investigative work that connected his DNA to both cases.

    Michael McLellan, 34, appeared in court for both cases Monday.

    The judge in Hania's case revoked McLellan's bond. The judge also said McLellan could face the death penalty in the case.

    Replying to @MorganABC11

    Judge revokes bond for McLellan. Says if convicted, the maximum punishment is the death penalty. Right now, he’s being walked out of one courtroom and into another for an unrelated case. #abc11

    Right after that hearing, McLellan also appeared in Superior Court for the other rape case.

    According to Robeson County District Attorney Johnson Britt, that case -- a 2016 rape -- was solved while police were investigating Hania's death and kidnapping.

    Authorities used McLellan's DNA to connect him to the 2016 case, Britt said. He was indicted by a grand jury last Monday on charges of rape, burglary and robbery with a dangerous weapon in that case. He was given $5 million bond.

    When asked why the FBI and Lumberton police insisted after Hania's body was found that McLellan was not a person of interest in the case even though rumors were circulating on social media that he had confessed, Britt said that it was because they were trying to build a case based on "proof beyond a reasonable doubt."

    He said McLellan became a suspect shortly after the stolen SUV was found.

    "There was sufficient evidence that we could have charged him but there was a hole that needed to be filled and that hole was finding Hania," he said.

    Britt also said they didn't want to release McLellan's name "for the sake of avoiding the prejudicial effect on the subsequent prosecution."

    "So Chief McNeil and the FBI were told by me that they were not going to release Mr. McLellan's name until we had sufficient evidence we believed to convict him," he said.

    Britt said McLellan has not confessed in the case.

    Hania was abducted from outside of her home Nov. 5. The frantic search to bring her home ended Nov. 27 when authorities found her body in Robeson County.

    McLellan faces charges of kidnapping, rape, and murder in her case.

    McLellan had been in custody since Nov. 13, when he was arrested on charges stemming from a case unrelated to Hania's murder or the 2016 rape.

    According to that arrest warrant, McLellan was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, second-degree kidnapping and attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon stemming from an incident on Oct. 15 in which he allegedly pointed a gun at a woman and attempted to steal her car and money.

    Britt said Monday that McLellan's DNA from that case was used in the investigation of Hania's case.
