“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.

Gomez is being held in Virginia while he awaits extradition to New Jersey, where he was indicted. He is a citizen of Honduras, and was in the U.S. illegally. His age is unclear.
