Ivan Gustavo Hernandez-Cabral, a 24-year-old male, was taken into U.S. Marshals Service custody in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This operation showcased the unwavering commitment of the U.S. Marshals Service to bring those responsible to justice, no matter where they hide. The ambush, which occurred on Nov. 4, 2019, in Sonora, Mexico, shocked the international community with its sheer brutality. It resulted in the deaths of three women and six children while they were en route to a wedding. The victims, all of whom had dual citizenship, were part of a Mormon group living in the region. With the U.S. Marshals Service at the forefront of the investigation in collaboration with Mexican authorities, about 20 suspects had already been detained by February 2021. The U.S. Marshals Service, while detailing the arrest, credited an anonymous tip that led to the location and apprehension of Hernandez-Cabral in Albuquerque. They remain tight-lipped about the specifics of the arrest operation but reiterated the pivotal role the U.S. Marshals Service plays in cross-border criminal investigations.
