SPOKANE, Wash. - On Thursday U.S. Marshal Craig Thayer announced that the U.S. Marshals Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Task Force (PNVOTF) arrested three suspects in Chelan County Washington, who are believed to be involved in the murder of Daniel Cortez-Cisneros of Richmond, Virginia. Cortez-Cisneros was shot and killed outside a nightclub in Richmond, Virginia on June 11, 2011.

An arrest warrant was issued in Richmond, Virginia on June 15, 2011 for Noel Garcia (Age 24) and Evelin Jakelin Escalon-Murillo (Age 23) charging them with "Conspiracy to Commit First Degree Murder".   

A third suspect, Everado George Dela Mora (Age 35), is believed to have driven the other two suspects to Chelan, Washington.  He is charged with being an "Accessory After the Fact", to the murder.

On June 27, 2011, the PNVOTF, received information that all three suspects may have driven across the United States and might be in Chelan, Washington.  

At approximately 5:50 am on Thursday, PNVOTF officers saw the suspect's vehicle leave a residence where the wanted individuals were believed to be, and conducted a felony traffic stop. All three suspects were taken into custody and have been booked into the Chelan County Jail.  The investigation is ongoing.

The PNVOTF is a U.S. Marshals led task force that is comprised of Deputy U.S. Marshals from the Eastern and Western Districts of Washington, the District of Alaska, and the District of Oregon, along with other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.  

The Task Force concentrates apprehension efforts on felony sex offenders, and other federal, state and local felony fugitives. The PNVOTF goal is to remove wanted felons from our communities in order to improve safety and reduce the amount of violence in the region. 

Marshal Thayer said "Once again, the cooperative efforts of law enforcement at the local, state, and federal levels have resulted in the successful apprehension of violent offenders from our communities."
