2 Wanted In Separate SoCal Murders Nabbed In Mexico

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The FBI says two fugitives wanted in separate murder cases in Southern California were arrested in Mexico this week and returned to the United States.

The agency said Friday the arrests are the result of investigations by a task force made up of FBI agents and Los Angeles police detectives. They located Jose Luis Munoz in Mexico Sunday, two days after he allegedly shot a driver to death during a road rage incident in Los Angeles.

On Wednesday, authorities in Tijuana turned over custody of a man suspected in a 2008 vengeance killing in Wilmington to U.S. authorities. The FBI says a probe by the task force led to Fernando DeJesus Ochoa’s whereabouts in Mexico.

Both Ochoa and Munoz will be prosecuted by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office.

    PERFECT EXAMPLE OF WHY WE NEED TO CLOSE THE BOARDERS AND DEPORT “ALL” ILLEGAL ALIENS!! MURDERERS AND CRIMINALS COME TO THE US AND GETA SLAP ON THE WRIST…SAD

    1. Ron says:

      @Ken: you are absolutely right. That IS exactly why they go to MEXICO, because they know that they can’t get the DEATH penalty, since Mexico won’t allow it, if they are returned.

      1. surfbum says:

        True, but only for their citizens. If the fugitive is American they will hand them over immediately and with pleasure even if the suspect is facing the death penalty. (I don’t know if this is their policy for citizens of other countries who flee to Mexico and are caught there).

      Perfect example of low education standards,
      and why Asians are surpassing us.
      Family values.
      Boarders should be spelled Borders.

      Alas, poor Ken
      Typing in all caps
      misspelling
      Placing the blame on others
      a victim of low education
      smoked to much grass in school?
      Those who want to learn, succeed
      Those who want a job will find one
      instead of sitting at a PC trolling comments
      and placing the blame on others

    hey obama !!! you see this ? your votes ran off without you telling them, they only want you to know that they dream only for more tax dollars. you idiot. when they commit serious crimes then you deport them, they are ahead of you , they deport themselves.

  4. satnot says:

    LMAO, they deported themselves and American justice brings them back so they can spend thousands of tax payers money to keep them here in American jails! What’s wrong with this picture? They should serve their time in Mexican jails and have Mexico pay for their room and board for life.
