TYLER — The Morning-Telegraph and East Texas TV stations reported that Orquidia Nunez, 33, was arrested for assault. They also reported that Tyler ISD, her employer, had put her on administrative leave. What no one has done was actually report Orquidia Nunez’ side of the story.
The Tyler Tribune and our sister publication, The Ellis County Observer, will interview Orquidia Nunez live on air Oct. 19 at 8 p.m: www.EllisCountyORadio.com.
What the other media outlets did not report:
- Orquidia Nunez’ ex-husband, Matthew Dereck Miller, came to her house to enforce a custody order (they are currently running through the 321st District Court ringer), but not before savagely beating her and her mother and almost running over their 4-year-old
- Orquidia Nunez’ mom had her eye stabbed by Miller and was transported to the hospital
- Orquidia Nunez’ sister and mother both came out when Miller became violent towards her
- There were no “gangsters” as Miller reportedly told law enforcement, only women — Orquidia Nunez, her mother and her sister
- Smith County Sheriff’s Office deputies reportedly took a large amount of time before responding to the scene and by that time, Orquidia Nunez said they had already talked to Miller. She was quickly placed under arrest a short time thereafter
