Press Briefing Advisory

Re: Homicide Investigation Updates

July 24 – The East Palo Alto Police Department will conduct a press briefing tomorrow on Monday, July 25, 2011, at 11:00 a.m. at the East Palo Alto Police Substation, 219 Demeter Street.

Thanks to numerous tips from the community, the police department has identified persons of interest in two (2) recent homicides: the murder of Catherine Fisher, 19, which occurred on July 13, 2011, and the murder of Hugo Chavez, 26, which occurred on July 19, 2011.

The Department believes both murders were committed by member(s) of a violent trio during a crime-spree that spanned from East Palo Alto to Grand Junction, Colorado.

The trio are identified as Christian Fuentes, 20, Jaime Cardenas, 19, and Fidel Silva, 24, all from East Palo Alto. These suspects are also wanted in connection with two robberies, a burglary and a triple shooting and murder in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Christian Fuentes was arrested last week by the East Palo Alto and Fremont Police Department and is in-custody for a parole violation. Both Cardenas and Silva remain at-large and are wanted for the Colorado murder and for questioning in the two East Palo Alto murders.

The Department request that the photos of these suspects not be published until all witnesses have been interviewed. We appreciate your cooperation.

Anyone with information about these investigations is encouraged to call the police department's anonymous tip line at (650) 853-8477 or leave an anonymous text-a-tip at (650) 409-7692.
