Escaped Killers Recaptured in Argentina

BUENOS AIRES – Security forces in the central Argentine province of Santa Fe on Monday caught Cristian Lanatta and Victor Schillaci, the two convicts who were on the lam for 15 days from a maximum security prison where they were serving a life sentence for a triple murder.

“The two fugitives are back in custody,” provincial Lt. Gov. Carlos Fascendini announced Monday on Radio del Plata.

He said the two fugitives were trapped by provincial special forces near the rural town of Cayasta, where the first escapee, Martin Lanatta, was nabbed last Saturday.

The detention was not immediately confirmed by Security Minister Patricia Bullrich, after the mix-up last Saturday when she announced that Cristian Lanatta and Schillaci had been captured, then had to deny it just hours later.

Nonetheless, Cayasta Deputy Mayor Veronica Devia said in a radio statement that they had been caught in a rice-growing region just a short distance from where Martin Lanatta was detained on Saturday.

The Lanatta brothers and Victor Schillaci pulled off the jailbreak 15 days ago at a maximum security prison in Buenos Aires, 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, an ingredient in synthetic drugs such as methamphetamine.
