Argentine Cops Say They Recaptured Only 1 of the 3 Escaped Murderers

BUENOS AIRES – Police in the Argentine province of Santa Fe said they have recaptured only one of the three fugitives who escaped 13 days ago from a maximum-security prison, though the government of President Mauricio Macri hailed the recapture of all of them.

Macri had earlier congratulated security forces for the capture of “the fugitives” and Vice President Gabriela Michetti announced that all three had been taken into custody.

Nonetheless, the Santa Fe chief of police, Rafael Grau, reported that only Martin Lanatta was arrested near the rural town of Cayasta in the northern part of the province.

“In an operation carried out by officers of Police Station 5 of that town, they managed to find one of the fugitives on a country road. Three officers shouted at the individual and managed to stop him. The only person we have in custody is Martin Lanatta,” Grau said.

From Cayasta, Roman Di Santo, chief of Argentine Federal Police, told reporters that officers continue working in the area, but did not provide any further information about the other two fugitives, Cristian Lanatta and Victor Schillaci.

The three prisoners escaped in late 2015 from a maximum security prison in Argentina where they were serving life sentences for the triple murder of Sebastian Forza, Damian Ferron and Leopoldo Bina.

All were involved in a case of trafficking ephedrine.
