Arizona Deputies Find Suspect in 13-Year-Old Double Murder in Their Jail

January 30, 2008  | 

Pima County (Ariz.) deputy sheriffs running a background check on one of their recent inmates discovered that the man—a Mexican national—is wanted in connection with a 13-year-old Tucson double homicide.

Geraldo Lopez was being held on unrelated sexual assault and kidnapping charges at the time of the discovery. Lopez, 31, is now being held on the 1995 murder charges. He is charged with shooting and killing Joel Tapia, 26, and José Urquides, 19.

Authorities believe Lopez went to Mexico shortly after the killings and that he recently returned to Tucson.

Lopez is being held in lieu of $1.25 million bail. Even if he could raise that bail, he won't be released. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement has filed a hold, specifying no bail without further federal proceedings. No reason was given for the immigration hold.
