New Orleans, LA – On October 15, 2019, with critical support
from the U.S. Border Patrol, New Orleans Police Department (NOPD), and
the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) International Division, the USMS New Orleans
Task Force located and arrested NOPD fugitive, Martin Jose
Jarquin-Estrada, 31 years of age, in Zacatecas, Mexico. He was wanted by
NOPD for a 2017 Murder.
In February of 2017 the New Orleans
Police Department responded to a call on Clara Street in New Orleans and
upon arrival they discovered a Hispanic male laying unresponsive on a
mattress. The victim had multiple stab wounds and later succumbed to his
injuries. A murder suspect was later identified as Martin Jose
Jarquin-Estrada, a Nicaraguan citizen.
The NOPD requested the
assistance of the USMS to locate and arrest Martin Jose Jarquin-Estrada.
Attempts were made to locate the fugitive in the New Orleans area but
were unsuccessful as he had fled the area and later the country. The
USMS continued to look for him until ultimately locating and arresting
him in Zacatecas, Mexico. Martin Jose Jarquin-Estrada arrived in
Houston, Texas yesterday, the first point of entry where he will await
extradition to New Orleans.
The U.S. Marshal for Eastern
District of Louisiana, Scot Illing wanted to thank the U.S. Border
Patrol and their Agent assigned to the USMS New Orleans Task Force for
their assistance in locating Jarquin-Estrada who had been wanted for
more than two years. The countless hours and great team work amongst our
law enforcement agencies directly led to this arrest and I would like to
thank all agencies involved.
