COLORADO CITY, TX - On Friday, U.S. marshals arrested Eduardo Avalos Escoto, 38, at a gas station, where he worked, after nearly a three year search for the fugitive. He was wanted for the brutal killing of a woman in Riverside County, California.
On September 1, 2019, the body of 42-year-old Brandie Frazier was found inside her Woodcrest home. The victim and Escoto reportedly became engaged shortly before she was killed.
In a press release, the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office stated:
Homicide investigators believed that Escoto may have fled to Mexico and asked the DA’s Office to seek a foreign extradition packet which would allow the suspect to be arrested in Mexico for crimes committed in the United States. In June, USMS investigators were contacted by sheriff’s investigators who had information that Escoto was possibly back in the United States. Task force investigators then developed information that Escoto was in Washington state. Follow-up investigation, including interviews and search warrants, tracked the fugitive Escoto to Texas.
Escoto is currently being held at the Mitchell County Detention Center without bond, while awaiting extradition to Riverside County, where he will be charged with murder.
