International murder suspect found, arrested in Tulsa

Victor Antonio Martinez Hernandez was wanted for a crime spree that started in El Salvador and then multiple cities across the United States.

Hernandez is wanted in El Salvador for murder, according to reports he fled to the U.S.

Hernandez then popped up in Los Angeles where he violently assaulted a 9-year-old girl and her mother during a home invasion.

Hernandez then made his way to Harford County Maryland and killed a mother of 5, Rachel Morin, while she was walking down a trail.

Authorities believe that Hernandez was hiding adjacent to a trail and where Rachel was walking and attacked and killed Morin before fleeing Maryland.

Late last night our partners with the FBI – Federal Bureau of Investigation contacted Detectives with the Tulsa Police Department Special Investigations Division. They had been working on information that the suspect was in the Tulsa area.

The FBI, TPD Detectives, and TPD patrol Officers converged on a bar located at 21st and Garnett. Officers found the suspect casually sitting at the bar and placed him under arrest. Initially the suspect lied about his true identity and denied any knowledge of the crimes he is wanted for.

The suspect was booked into Tulsa County and awaiting extradition for his heinous crimes.

This is the culmination of tremendous efforts from multiple agencies across the US. We are proud of our Tulsa Police Officers for putting an end to Hernandez’s violent attacks on innocent people.
