California man Bryant Rivera, 30, is being sought for extradition to Mexico on two further murder counts after being detained and accused with the death of Angela Carolina Acosta Flores.
Authorities in Southern California have detained the California man who is accused of killing sex workers in Mexico on a regular basis.
In response to a request from Mexican authorities, federal agents apprehended California man Bryant Rivera on Thursday in Downey, Los Angeles County, according to U.S. officials and court documents, according to reports from NBC News, ABC News, and The Washington Post.
The body of Angela Carolina Acosta Flores, whose strangulation was discovered on January 25, 2022, was discovered in a hotel room in Tijuana. Rivera, 30, was detained on July 6 and accused with her murder, according to The Guardian.
The news source also mentioned that according to court papers, California man’s extradition will be requested by Mexican authorities. Then, they want to present evidence in support of two other charges connected to the deaths of two more women in Tijuana, at least one of which occurred in 2021.
The US magistrate judge Karen L Stevenson ordered California man to be held without bond while the extradition procedures are underway, according to Ciaran McEvoy, a spokesperson for the US attorney’s office, who spoke to The Guardian after California man’s Monday hearing in federal court. The Mexican government has 60 days to request California man’s extradition.
