Case Update: Former FBI Agent Edward Preciado Convicted for Murdering Kimberly Long

Hammered in Vegas
Detectives followed a trail that traversed the kitchen, then continued across the dining room and through the hallway. The bloody footprints faded noticeably with each step up the staircase. More bloody footprints led to the outside of the garage. These trails would later lead the detectives to hidden evidence. 

The rising garage door revealed Jeffrey Preciado’s father, covered in his victim’s blood. Former FBI agent Edward Preciado-Nuño stood over the lifeless body of Kimberly Ann Long. The 31-year-old mother lay in a pool of blood on the cold garage floor. Two bloody claw hammers were on the floor nearby. Staring at the detectives, Preciado-Nuño said, “She hit me with a hammer, so I hit her back.” The smaller hammer allegedly used by Kimberly was found beside her left hand. She was right-handed.

Preciado-Nuño has been sentenced to 8 to 20 years in prison for slaying Kimberly Long. Outrageously, his attorney, Tom Pitaro, asked the judge to sentence Preciado-Nuño to probation, because of his career in the FBI.
