Texas Murder Suspect Captured by Mexican Police
A Texas man who was on the Department of Public Safety's Top 10 Most Wanted list for the brutal murder of his wife has been handed over by Mexican authorities.
According to the DPS website, Eusebio DeLeon was turned over to U.S. authorities on Friday, April 28. He was captured in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico after nearly 4 years on the run.
According to police, DeLeon's estranged wife was found brutally beaten in her home in Falfurrias, Texas on March 27, 2012. They believe DeLeon bludgeoned her with a five-pound dumbbell, then wrapped an ironing cord around her neck. Two days later, DeLeon was arrested in Michigan and extradited back to Brooks County, where he was charged with murder and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
In October of 2013, DeLeon bonded out of the Brooks County Jail and was ordered to wear an ankle monitor. In December of that year, he removed the monitor and fled.
