'Most Wanted' fugitive sought in brutal NJ murder snared in Virginia

'Most Wanted' fugitive sought in brutal NJ murder snared in Virginia”

FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitive Walter Yovany Gomez was arrested without incident on Friday, August 11, 2017, in Woodbridge, Virginia, as a result of a well-coordinated investigation and tips received from the public.

Walter Yovany Gomez is accused of taking part in the Plainfield killing Julio Matute on May 15, 2011 - a murder that authorities claim was part of Gomez's initiation process to become a member of the worldwide street gang, MS-13.

The FBI Washington Field Office's Violent Crimes Task Force, the Fairfax County Police Department's Gang Unit, and the Northern Virginia Gang Task Force coordinated the local search and arrest of Gomez, who will remain in custody pending extradition proceedings. Matute was believed to have been socializing with a rival gang, and was ordered killed by MS-13 leaders, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Prosecutors say that after a night of partying Gomez and an accomplice beat Matute with a baseball bat, stabbed him 17 times with a knife and then slit his throat with a screwdriver. He was wanted in connection with a brutal murder that was allegedly part of an MS-13 initiation.

Matute was killed on suspicion that he and members of a rival gang were getting too close. The co-conspirator was subsequently apprehended, charged, and found guilty for the Matute homicide.

President Trump condemned MS-13 in an appearance in July on Long Island where 17 murders have been attributed to the gang since January 1, 2016. "They rape and they rob", Trump said. In April, Jeff Sessions traveled to Long Island where he vowed to take the group down and linked it to the administration's broader policies on illegal immigration. He was added to the FBI's most wanted list earlier this year. Almost 500 fugitives have been apprehended or located since, with 160 of them resulting from citizen cooperation.

The FBI was offering a reward of up to $100,000 for his capture.
