The man wanted for the murders of Meadow Lake brothers David Lopez, 23, and Anthony Lopez, 20, was captured Monday evening at an Albuquerque motel after a year on the run.
Early in the evening of Monday, Oct. 28, Albuquerque Police Department officers were called to the Siegel Suites on Hotel Circle, near Interstate-25 and Eubank Boulevard.
“They were responding to a disturbance call,” said Sgt. Joseph Rowland, spokesman for the Valencia County Sheriff’s Office. “When they arrived, the man they made contact with was identified as Isaac Jaramillo, and they pulled up the warrant for his arrest.”
VCSO detectives were notified and went to Albuquerque to take Jaramillo into custody, and he was booked into the Valencia County Detention Center.
Jaramillo, 19, also known as Isaac Hernandez and goes by the street name “Beast Mode,” is charged with two open counts of murder in connection with the Oct. 19, 2018, shooting deaths of David and Anthony Lopez, and aggravated battery.
