TACOMA, Wash. — A FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitive from Tacoma was tracked down in Mexico and was booked into the Pierce County Jail on Thursday.
Santiago Mederos is accused of shooting Camille and Josh Love in what investigators believe was a case of mistaken identity.
The brother and sister were not gang members, but they were driving a red car and Josh was wearing a red jacket, which is the color of what investigators say is Mederos’ rival gang.
Camille, who was 20 at the time of the shooting, was killed.
“They were out cruising, looking for revenge. So they just decided I fit the description and the rest is history,” Josh Love told KIRO 7′s Dave Wagner earlier this year.
Five gang members have already been convicted in the shooting.
Josh Love had not spoken publicly in 10 years and told Wagner that he lives with a tremendous amount of guilt. “I always feel like I let my sister die. I always feel like I could have done more, should have done more,” said Love.
Jail records show Maderos was booked just before 6 p.m. on investigation of first-degree murder, second-degree murder, first-degree attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder and second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm.
