Suspect in 2012 Mexico City murder extradited from Spain

Mexico City, Mexico — The suspect in the 2012 murder of a Mexican man has been extradited from Spain. Over the weekend, Manual “H” was returned to Mexico and handed over to local authorities to face the charge.

According to an FGR statement, “the events occurred on June 20, 2012, when the victim, Juan Carlos “N”, 35 years old, left a bar with Manuel “H” in the El Yaqui neighborhood, in Cuajimalpa.”

According to their investigation, both men returned to the apartment of Manual “H” “where an argument began that ended with the death of Juan Carlos,” they said. “The victim was murdered with a knife and his body was deposited in a cement drum, which was found in a warehouse of the housing complex,” they explained.

“The legal autopsy carried out on the victim’s body established that he was deprived of life due to an injury caused by a knife to the neck, as well as various traumas, subsequently his body was deposited in the container and covered entirely with cement,” Ulises Lara, spokesperson for the FGJCDMX said at the time of the discovery.

In compliance with the Extradition Treaty signed between the United Mexican States and the Kingdom of Spain, a fugitive requested by the Fifty-Sixth Criminal Court of Mexico City was extradited to Mexico for his probable responsibility in the crime of qualified homicide.

Subsequently, the fugitive Manual “H” was handed over to Mexican authorities at the Adolfo Suárez International Airport in Madrid Barajas, Spain, from where he was transferred on a commercial flight to Mexico City.
