Suspect Held in Murder of U.S. Consulate Employee in Mexico

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico – A suspect has been arrested in the killing of two American citizens – a U.S. consulate employee and her husband – in this violence-plagued border city, Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office, or PGR, said in a statement.

Miguel Angel Nevarez Escajeda, alias “El Lentes” (Glasses), was detained last weekend on the basis of an anonymous complaint, authorities said.

On Sept. 6, the PGR’s Siedo organized crime unit had issued a warrant for his arrest, alleging his direct involvement in the March 13 murders of Leslie A. Enriquez, an employee at the U.S. consulate in Ciudad Juarez, and her husband, Arthur H. Redelfs, a guard at the El Paso County Jail, the statement read.

Also on March 13, a Mexican state police officer who was the husband of another employee of that same consulate was also killed in Ciudad Juarez, which lies across the Rio Grande from El Paso, Texas.

In early July, another suspect, Jesus Ernesto Chavez Castillo, the purported head of a group of gunmen working for the Juarez cartel, was arrested in connection with those slayings.

At least 34 El Paso residents have been killed in Ciudad Juarez over the past three years, with U.S. citizens among the victims. EFE
