Octaviano Juarez-Corro has finally been busted after 16 years of hiding and being on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list. It’s reported that the 48-year-old went into hiding after allegedly shooting and killing two people and injuring three others, including his wife who was shot in the chest twice during a Memorial Day picnic in Milwaukee, Wisconsin back in 2006.
CNN reports that Octaviano Juarez-Corro was captured in Zapopan, Guadalajara, Mexico, a year after he was placed on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted” list.
There was a $100,000 reward for information on his whereabouts until an anonymous individual called in a tip.
Upon his arrest, Octaviano Juarez-Corro was charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide and three counts of first-degree attempted intention homicide. He is also faced with a federal arrest warrant regarding charges of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
After receiving a tip from the public, the FBI and Mexican authorities located Juarez-Corro on Thursday in Zapopan, Guadalajara, Mexico, the release said.
A felony arrest warrant was issued in Milwaukee County Circuit Court charging Juarez-Corro with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide and three counts of first-degree attempted intentional homicide, according to the FBI. A federal arrest warrant charges him with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, the FBI said.
Whether Juarez-Corro has an attorney and the status of his extradition process were not clear.
Juarez-Corro was the 525th person added to the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, which was created in 1950, the release said.
Have you noticed that when they catch these guys it really isn’t great police work it is just someone snitching on the fugitive? They entice the snitching with $100k and just let the people do the work for them and then take all the credit for it.
Juarez-Corro would still be a free man if someone didn’t snitch, but now he is likely going to spend the rest of his life in jail for the murders he committed.
