The FBI confirmed on Saturday morning that after a four year manhunt it has captured one of the bureau’s 10 Most Wanted criminals, who was sought in connection with a brutal 2011 murder in New Jersey.
Walter Yovany Gomez, whom the FBI refers to as a New Jersey gang member, was apprehended in Woodbridge, Virginia by local law enforcement.
Gomez was wanted in connection with his alleged involvement in the murder of Julio Matute in Plainfield, New Jersey in May 2011. The murder was allegedly part of an initiation into the international criminal gang Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13).
The FBI said that Gomez was arrested without incident. The bureau is crediting public assistance for his apprehension.
"The apprehension of Walter Yovany Gomez is a prime example of the close coordination between the public and law enforcement,” Agent Michael Whitaker told ABC News on Saturday. “Gomez will now stand trial for his alleged involvement for a brutal murder, which took a young man from his family. The FBI thanks the public for its continued vigilance."
