Mollie Halpern: An alleged murderer and gang member from Washington state is the latest addition to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading directly to the arrest of Santiago Villalba Mederos—who is also known as “Pucho” and “Stretch”.
Mederos was 19 years old and a member of the Eastside Lokotes Sureño gang in Tacoma when he pulled the trigger in separate shootings in 2010, killing two and seriously wounding a third.
Special Agent Terry Postma…
Terry Postma: None of the victims had anything to do with gangs. They were just innocent victims.
Halpern: 20-year-old Camille was murdered and her 19-year-old brother, Joshuah, was seriously wounded. Their father, William Love, wants Mederos in cuffs.
William Love: I just really don’t know how to make sense of it all after all this time.
Halpern: Mederos has ties to Mexico. If you have information on this case, dial 1-800-CALL-FBI or visit tips.fbi.gov. With FBI, This Week, I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau.
