A NYC triple homicide suspect is in custody today after police captured him when he was stopped at a Schulenburg, Texas roadblock early Tuesday morning. Miguel Mejia-Ramos is wanted suspect in the triple stabbings of his two toddler daughters and their mother in NYC on Sunday night, according to ABC News on Jan. 21.
The father of the two dead girls that were found stabbed to death in their home alongside their mother, goes by two different names, report authorities. The 28-year-old man was the object of a manhunt after finding the bodies over the weekend.
U.S. Marshalls arrested Ramos on a warrant from the NYPD. He was on the road between Houston and San Antonio. Ramos was found once he turned his cell phone on and this gave the police his location.
With the help of the Texas Marshalls, Ramos is captured and he’ll be coming back to NYC to face charges, which are still pending today. He is a suspect in the triple homicide of his family members. If he is not guilty, fleeing the area didn’t help his case much.
One-year-old Yaslin Mejia and two-year-old Daniela Mejia and their mother, 21-year-old Deisy Garcia were found dead in their Queens apartment on Sunday night.
