Cesar Armando Librado Legorreta Arrested Saturdayon March 5, 2012 in Alleged Serial Killers by Brian Combs
The governor of Mexico state, an area that forms part of the Mexico City metropolitan area, announced Saturday via Twitter that Cesar Armando Librado Legorreta has been recaptured. Librado Legorreta escaped from jail after being charged with the murders of seven women.
The Formato 21 radio station reported that Librado Legorreta was arrested during a police operation in the Federal District. More than 200 police officers were involved after a tip was received revealing a possible hiding place for Librado Legorreta.
Librado Legorreta was a bus driver. He allegedly befriended his victims, and offered to give them rides to their destination that were off his set route.
Once he had them alone, he would rape and strangle them.
He was arrested in February, and escaped during the night of February 26-27. Reports say he removed his handcuffs and slipped out of the police state office where he was being guarded by three officers.
Clearly, investigators believe the guards were involved in his escape, as one has been arrested and the other two are now fugitives.
