LAREDO, Texas — A Salvadoran man wanted in connection with a Dallas capital murder was apprehended in Mexico and turned over to U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents last week.
On August 21, 2019, the Dallas Police Department named 22-year-old Dennis Jimenez Hernandez as a suspect in a capital murder investigation. This, after a victim was found deceased in his residence as a result of "homicidal violence" on June 20, 2019.
On August 29, 2019, Mexican authorities escorted Hernandez to mid-bridge at the Juarez-Lincoln International Bridge and turned him over to U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents.
CBP agents confirmed Hernandez's identity using biometric verification and confirmed warrants through the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) for capital murder, assaulting a family or household member, and driving while under the influence.
Earlier today, Hernandez was booked into the Dallas County Jail after initially being booked into the Webb County Jail and undergoing extradition proceedings.
“CBP has an outstanding working relationship with our Mexican counterparts and continue to keep constant communication when dangerous fugitives from the Unites States flee the country and are apprehended by Mexican authorities,” Port Director Albert Flores, Laredo Port of Entry, stated of the arrest.
