In January of 2012, AMW aired the case of wanted Nevada murderer Eduardo Estrada-Puentes. In 2011, Eduardo strangled his estranged wife to death after she broke off their relationship. The victim was a former police intern for the Elko, Nevada Police Department.
Interestingly, the Pima County Sheriff's Department in Arizona has Eduardo on their Most Wanted page. This makes sense, because Eduardo had visited family in Arizona right before the murder, although it is unusual for a local Most Wanted website to post a fugitive wanted out of a different state just because of family ties to their region.
As far as I'm concerned, Eduardo is in his native Mexico and being supported by his family and possibly even his gang network.
UPDATE: After three years on the run, Estrada-Puentes has been arrested in Mexico.
