Another video reposted by user @hiemilynoelle of Melgoza on TikTok is going viral after she learns that she will be going to jail for her actions.
Absolutely no remorse or empathy. I had to break the video up into several parts. The arrest video is next. #fyp #lawandcrimenetwork #stephaniemelgoza
In the above video, Melgoza is told she does not have a bond and that she will be going to jail. She is also told that she killed two people, which she seems unfazed by. Her car is also property of East Bureau Police Department now because it is a crime scene in the case. During the interaction, Melgoza can be heard asking when she will get her car back so that she can take it to class. “You are clueless with that clearly I’ve already explained this to you,” the person in the video can be heard saying. In the video, Melgoza is told she will be going to jail for reckless homicide due to driving drunk and killing two people.
“You’re on body camera being completely careless about killing two people tonight. That’s sad, and pathetic, and horrible all at the same time,” said the person in the video.
