Angel Nunez-Castaneda Wanted for the Murder of Yesenia Nungaray in Castro Valley

ID# 09-002 – Fled the United States before being named a suspect.

ID #09-002 – Castro Valley, CA

Miguel Angel Nunez-Castaneda is wanted for the 2003 murder of Yesenia Nungaray in Castro Valley, California. The case became a San Francisco Bay Area headline at the time because detectives did not know the name of the victim when her body was found in a duffle bag behind a Carrow’s restaurant.

Color sketches of the “Teenage Jane Doe” were released to the media in an effort to identify the young women. In December of 2006, almost 3 years after the murder, Alameda County Sheriff’s detectives were able to identify Nungaray as the victim.  Nungaray had recently moved from Mexico to the Hayward area before her murder. Nunez-Castaneda was determined to be someone that Nungaray had known in Mexico. The two shared a house together for a short time in Hayward.

Nunez-Castaneda was interviewed by detectives in 2006 and then was believed to have fled to Mexico before officially being named a suspect in 2007. He is now wanted on a warrant charging him with her murder. Miguel Angel Nunez-Castaneda also uses the combination of his name like Angel Nunez-Casteneda.

  • For Amy—Mexico isn’t complying because it doesn’t hold an extradition treaty with the US and every time we try to get a suspected criminal from them, it’s a large legal battle they draw out. Add to the fact that California is a Death Penalty State and Mexico HATES such sentences the matter only gets more complicated and worse. Mexico pretty much doesn’t like California’s laws and will fight on almost EVERYTHING.

  • He has been seen on America’s Most Wanted too, and I thought that he was caught, but I was wrong. Living this close to her (in nearby Hayward), does touch me a lot, especially when they show the emotional procession of Yesenia’s body on TV. Having this fact that he is still on the run after all this time despite that he is located is appalling. I know that Carrow’s Restaurant well and I avoid looking at it because I feel that it is haunted.
    About a month in the USA and already, she gets killed. That is a shame; and it gives a lot of melancholy here in South Alameda County.

  • Someone tell me why Mexico isn’t complying with the arrest warrant of this despicable man. I just watched 48 Hours and it said that they have located him but the Mexican authority or whatever was not cooperating. If this is still fact, tell me why. Tell me what we can do to help. By the way, I live in Missouri. She’s everyone’s girl and I’m even younger than her.
