SAN DIEGO (CNN) – A man who was thought to have killed his girlfriend in California and had been on the run for six years went to court on Friday. Raymond McLeod was brought to court for the 2016 death of Krystal Mitchell, who was 30 years old.
Police said that McLeod and Mitchell lived in Arizona, but that she was found dead in an apartment while they were visiting friends in San Diego. Investigators say that McLeod left the country after killing her, but she was caught this week in El Salvador.
Investigators say that Mitchell’s mother, Josephine Wentzel, used to be a detective and helped with the search for McLeod all over the world.
‘Yes, I got him is the most important thing for this conference. He will never get away again. “If I have anything to say about it, he won’t get out of that jail,” Wentzel said. Before he was caught, McLeod was on the list of 15 people the U.S. Marshals wanted the most.
