Tacoma Murder Suspect Extradited from Mexico After Ten Years
Will face charges in
Pierce County

August 13, 2018

(NATIONAL) – A wanted fugitive, a murder suspect was returned to the United States on August 9th after more than 10 years on the run, according to a statement released by the FBI.

Agents from the FBI’s Seattle Field Office escorted Jesus Richard Mederos, 32, formerly of Tacoma, WA back from Mexico. Mederos will face state charges of Murder in the Second Degree and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm in the First Degree filed by the Pierce County Prosecutor’s Office (PCPAO).

The Superior Court of Washington for Pierce County issued a warrant for Mederos’s arrest after the October 20, 2006, murder of an 18-year-old man in Tacoma. On December 23, 2016, a federal arrest warrant was issued for Mederos, after he was charged with Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution.

Mederos was taken into custody without incident in May 2017, in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico, by the Policía Federal Ministerial, in coordination with the FBI Legal Attaché office at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City.

Mexican authorities transferred Mederos to FBI custody on Thursday morning of last week. FBI agents then transported Mederos to Washington State, where he was booked into the Pierce County jail the evening of August 9th.

The charges against Mederos allege that on October 20, 2006, Mederos learned of an argument between a friend of his, and the victim. Mederos allegedly retrieved a handgun from his residence and began searching for the victim.

Mederos allegedly found that victim seated in the passenger seat of a vehicle. The driver attempted to drive away, but Mederos allegedly fired one round through the passenger window, striking the victim in the torso, killing him.

The Tacoma Police Department (TPD) conducted the murder investigation. In the course of pursuing a parallel FBI investigation, the FBI’s Tacoma Resident Agency — a part of the Seattle Field Office — developed information on Mederos’ location.

“Investigators extend particular appreciation to authorities in Mexico for their partnership. Their role was critical in ensuring Mederos will face justice for his alleged actions,” said the FBI statement.
