The cat-and-mouse game lasted 13 years.

From the day 29-year-old Jesus Hilario Jimenez died on March 29, 2004, Cameron County Sheriff’s investigators set out to find Ciro Cantu Munoz.

Munoz managed to avoid arrest, investigators told KVEO-TV, by slipping into Mexico to avoid charges stemming from a lovers quarrel.

Witnesses told deputies that Jimenez and Munoz were in a fight outside the home of Munoz’s ex-wife when gunfire erupted. Jimenez, who was the ex-wife’s new partner, was shot in the head and died at the scene. Story continues below.

 


Detectives received tips that Munoz would cross back to the U.S. through ports of entry. After chasing the fugitive  for more than a decade, deputies finally snagged the 42-year-old fugitive at the B&M Bridge in Brownsville on Friday.

Munoz is being held without bond.
