The Denver Coroner's office on Monday announced John Anderson, 57, was killed in the fiery March 3 crash.

26-year-old Ivan Castaneda was released from a Denver jail Saturday on a $25,000 bond despite an outstanding civil detainer from ICE.

Ivan Gerardo Zamarripa-Castaneda, 26, was booked at Denver Jail on Sunday on charges of vehicular homicide following a vehicle crash on the eastbound lanes of I-70. Zamarripa-Castaneda was arrested for vehicular homicide.

But that was not the case when Zamarripa-Castaneda was released from Denver's jail at 5:28 p.m. Saturday after posting $25,000 bond. "Although the department alerted ICE in response to a request for release notification it received, that did not occur until 6:33 p.m", according to the statement provided to Fox.

"As law enforcement professionals, we should all have the same ultimate goal in mind - to protect the public by combating criminals", Lynch said in a statement.

Israeli settlements are growing at a record pace, and often intentionally in places to make a contiguous Palestine impossible. According to al-Jabari's friends, he was shot in the chest despite having "physical and mental limitations".

ICE said it's working with the sheriff's department to avoid a similar situation in the future. "ICE helps fulfill that role by removing criminal aliens from the streets, and from the United States", he said. The agency now considers Zamarripa-Castaneda an "immigration fugitive".

The crash happened near eastbound Interstate 70 and North Brighton Boulevard shortly before midnight on March 3. Officials have not released the victim's identity.

The 26-year-old was asked to perform a sobriety test, which he agreed to, but he was not able to complete it. When police interviewed Zamarripa-Castaneda, his eyes were watery, his speech was slurred and his breath had a moderate odor of alcohol, according to an incident report. However, he was arrested at his home in the 2600 block of West Bayaud Avenue early on March 4.

He was charged with one count of vehicular homicide-DUI and one count of leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death.
