JNS blog previously reported on the incredible story of international fugitive status and extradition of Jose Francisco Gomez, who was featured on America's Most Wanted. A helpful reader provided a link to an FBI press release about the arrest and extradition.
The actual criminal complaint is a horrific litany of unwholesome sadness, upon which...
...I intend to tread only lightly. Two interesting points: the wife was afraid to leave Gomez, a preacher, because she thought if she did she'd go to hell. Secondly, the criminal complaint rests only upon the account of witnesses and some recalling stuff that happened quite far in the past; if there is damning physical evidence, it's not mentioned in the complaint.
This seems mighty thin for any criminal charge, let alone a charge which caused extradition from Panama. While JNS blog has utmost confidence in the prosecutors, I will emphasize (even more than usual) the suspect in this case is innocent unless proven guilty.
