Mexico City, Mexico — A man wanted in Franklin Country, Washington for rape, injuries and murder has been extradited from Mexico. On Friday, the Attorney General’s Office of the Republic (FGR) extradited a man of Mexican nationality required by the Superior Court of Washington in Franklin County.

On Friday, Mexico handed Edgar “C” over to federal authorities at the Mexico City International Airport “for the crimes of homicide, rape and injuries,” they reported in a statement.

According to the FGR, “Edgar “C”, together with his partner, beat, tortured and raped their children, causing the death of one of them.”

The Government of Mexico granted the extradition of the defendant to the Government of the United States after his arrest in March of this year in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco.
