FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitive Walter Yovany Gomez was arrested without incident Friday in Woodbridge. The FBI credited a well-coordinated investigation and tips from the public.

Gomez and a co-conspirator, both members of MS-13 in New Jersey, are accused of the gruesome May 2011 killing of Julio Matute, reportedly because he was socializing with a rival gang, according to an FBI news release

The co-conspirator was convicted in the case. Gomez and the other man are accused of attacking Matute with a baseball bat, cutting his throat and stabbing him 17 times with a screwdriver, according to the FBI.

Warrants were issued for Gomez in September 2013 on a charge of violent crime in aid of racketeering. Gomez was placed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list in April.

“The apprehension of Walter Yovany Gomez is a prime example of the close coordination between the vigilant public and the hard working men and women of law enforcement,” stated Timothy Gallagher, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Newark Division. “Gomez will now stand trial for his alleged involvement in a brutal murder which took a young man from his family.”

The FBI Washington Field Office’s Violent Crimes Task Force, the Fairfax County Police Department’s Gang Unit, and the Northern Virginia Gang Task Force coordinated the local search and arrest of Gomez, who will remain in custody pending extradition proceedings, according to the release.
