Wanted murder suspect arrested while attempting to cross border
ANTHONY, NM — The fifth and final suspect accused of murdering an 18-year-old man in Anthony, New Mexico in 2011 was captured at a border crossing last week.
U.S. Marshals helped to arrest 20-year-old Leonardo Limon at the Paso Del Norte international crossing on Friday.
Last May, Marshals tracked Limon to Mexico. On Friday, he attempted to enter the U.S. where he was taken into custody and is awaiting extradition to New Mexico.
Authorities say limon is believed to have stabbed the man seven times and beating him with a tire iron during a rival gang fight in Anthony.
