Tip leads ICE agents to Mexican murder suspect
SAN DIEGO — A previously deported Mexican suspected of bludgeoning another man to death with a baseball bat in Mexico three years ago was caught in the Los Angeles area and deported, federal agents said Tuesday.
Mateo Perez Hernandez, 28, was turned over to Mexican authorities at San Ysidro and handed over to the Mexican Attorney General’s Office, according to agents with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Hernandez is suspected of killing Eduardo Fuentes of Mexicali, Mexico, after Hernandez’s brother argued with Fuentes outside a party in September 2010, authorities said.
Mexican authorities in Baja issued a warrant charging him in Fuentes’ death, but Hernandez allegedly fled to avoid prosecution.
San Diego-based ICE enforcement and removal operations officers received information about Perez Hernandez from the FBI on Aug. 8 and determined he was probably living in La Habra.
La Habra authorities arrested him on a drug offense Aug. 25.
