Walter Yovany Gomez, one of the FBI’s most wanted men who has been sought in the last four years in connection with a brutal 2011 murder in New Jersey has been arrested in Woodbridge, Virginia by security operatives.
The suspect, one of the bureau’s 10 Most Wanted criminals, was hunted in connection with his alleged involvement in the murder of Julio Matute in Plainfield, New Jersey in May 2011, was arrested without incident.
“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.”
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.
