AMW has aired the case of Jesus Gerardo Salazar three times, once in 2000, 2010 and 2011. According to police and the AMW airings, ack in 1999, Salazar, his girlfriend Lisa Huerta and Jay Ferrel conspired to kill 17-year old Felicia Ruiz in Houston, Texas. Ruiz and Huerta previously had issues at school so Huerta and Salazar rehearsed as to how they would kill Ruiz. Salazar picked up Ruiz under the guise of going to a party. The three then proceeded to stab Felicia 26 times, killing her.
Huerta and Ferrel have since been apprehended and are serving prison terms. Problem is that Jesus Salazar fled to Venezuela after the crime and Venezuela hasn't really been cooperative with Texas authorities (to be more specific, Salazar's father flew on a private jet and picked up his son in South Florida). In 2008, Venezuela set terms that they would only extradite Salazar if he served a 30-year prison sentence in Texas. Meanwhile, Salazar allegedly continues to date girls in Venezuela and brags about the murder of Felicia Ruiz.
The latest lead was back in 2010 when investigators hoped to locate Salazar's mother. This is assuming she's even still in the United States. In all honestly, it would help to get Salazar's father to cooperate but that likely won't happen.
