Murillo, 40, confessed and told FBI agents that he committed the armed bank robbery in Palm Beach County because he was in a “desperate financial situation” due to his failed marriage and his new relationship, according to court records.
He told agents he was “under a tremendous amount of stress” because he was the sole provider for two families, his ex-wife, his current girlfriend and a total of five children.
Murillo said his ex-wife told him during a phone conversation in the early afternoon of April 4 that she and their three children would be evicted if he didn’t promptly pay the rent. Murillo had recently bought his girlfriend a black Chevrolet Impala and a gun, according to court records
