Serial Killer Captured: Again

(Juarez, Chihuahua) Federal police have again captured a serial killer who was last arrested 6 months ago, accused of 10 killings for an organization named ‘The Assassin Artist’s; however, he was free and still committing crimes.  The official statement said he may have been responsible for killing minutes before his arrest.  When arrested he had firearms and drugs, and was driving a stolen vehicle.  The official statement gives no explanation for why he was free and probably linked to the killing near the arrest scene.
