Diego Uribe

Diego Uribe

Diego Uribe is a 22 year old man from Chicago, Illinois. His girlfriend is 19 year old Jafeth Ramos. [undefined]


Diego Uribe and his girlfriend Jafeth Ramos are each facing six counts of first degree murder.

Diego and his girlfriend murdered a family of six that Diego was related to in a botched robbery in their Gage Park home in February, 2016.


Uribe is a nephew to one of the victims, Maria Herminia Martinez.

Both he and Ramos allegedly gave statements implicating themselves to authorities.


After he entered the home, Uribe confronted Maria Herminia Martinez on the first-floor of the home.

Then they went upstairs.

There, he shot her and then systematically beat and stabbed the other family members as he encountered them throughout the home, police said.

Ramos was an “active participant” in the killings but did not shoot or stab any of the victims.


The victims were identified as a couple, their son, their daughter and their daughter's two children: 62-year-old Noe Martinez Sr., 58-year-old Rosaura Martinez, 38-year-old Noe Martinez Jr., 32-year-old Maria Herminia Martinez, 13-year-old Leonardo Cruz and 10-year-old Alexis Cruz.


The bodies of the victims were found in the home on February 4th after a friend of Noe Martinez Jr., one of the victims, tipped police that the O’Hare Airport window cleaner hadn’t shown up for his job for two days.


Maria Herminia Martinez, whose body was found in a kneeling position in an upstairs bedroom, was shot four times in the head and in each of her hands.

A source claims she may have been the main target.

Martinez’s 13-year old son, Leonardo Cruz, suffered a dozen knife wounds.

Noe Martinez Sr., 62, suffered 42 knife wounds all over his body.

His wife, Rosaura, 58, had been stabbed in the abdomen five times.

Alexis Cruz, 10, had been stabbed repeatedly, including three times in the heart.


Uribe and Ramos had planned to rob the family.

The couple took a few hundred dollars, an Xbox and other valuables.


Uribe and Ramos were caught by Chicago Police when DNA evidence came back from analysis on Wednesday May 18, 2016 which along with Uribe's cellphone records linked him to the crime scene. [undefined]
