FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitive Walter Yovany Gomez was arrested without incident on Friday, August 11, 2017, in Woodbridge, Virginia, as a result of a well-coordinated investigation and tips received from the public.

On the morning of May 8, 2011, Julio Matute was allegedly murdered by Walter Yovany Gomez and a co-conspirator. Both men were identified members of the Plainfield Locos Salvatrucha (PLS) gang, a New Jersey branch of the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) transnational gang. Gomez and his co-conspirator allegedly struck Matute in the head with a baseball bat, sliced his throat, and stabbed him in the back 17 times with a screwdriver, allegedly because Matute was suspected of socializing with a rival gang. The co-conspirator was subsequently apprehended, charged, and found guilty for the Matute homicide.

A federal arrest warrant was issued for Gomez in the United States District Court, District of New Jersey, Newark, New Jersey, on September 19, 2013, after he was charged with violent crime in aid of racketeering. Gomez was placed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list on April 12, 2017.

"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."
