ID #11-237 and ID #11-238
UPDATE: Jaime Cardenas has been arrested.
East Palo Alto police released photographs of two suspects wanted for questioning in two murders last month in an attempt to find the men and warn the public. Jaime Cardenas, 19, and Fidel Silva, 20, are wanted for questioning in connection with homicides on July 13 and July 19, 2011 police said. The two East Palo Alto residents are also suspects in two armed robberies and a triple shooting in Grand Junction, Colo., in which one person was killed and two others injured, police Chief Ron Davis said.
Investigators believe that the two men were responsible for the death of 19-year-old Catherine Fisher, who was shot while sitting in a parked car with another female and a male in the 2500 block of Annapolis Street at about 2:10 a.m. on July 13, police said. The suspects approached the car and opened fire, killing the Menlo Park woman. Investigators believe the gunmen were targeting the male in the car.
Police suspect the men then traveled to Grand Junction, where Fuentes had a “connection,” acting Capt. Jeff Liu said. Grand Junction police said the men are suspects in an armed robbery at a cash advance business, a home burglary, an armed robbery at a liquor store and a fatal shooting. All of the crimes were committed on July 16, 2011.
Detectives believe the two men returned to East Palo Alto and were involved in the shooting of 26-year-old Hugo Chavez on July 19 at about 8:35 p.m. near 13 Camellia Court. Chavez, who had a brief conversation with the gunman before he was shot several times, was taken to a hospital where he died about four hours later.
Liu said he hopes that the photographs will provide new leads to find Cardenas and Silva, while also warning the public to be wary of the two men. “These guys are dangerous. We need to get them off the streets. We don’t want them to hurt people,” Liu said.
