Paulo Luna Being Sought by Santa Cruz Police for the Alleged Murder of Tyler Tenorio

UPDATE:  A second suspect in the 2009 murder of 16-year-old Tyler Tenorio in Santa Cruz has been apprehended in Guanajuato, Mexico , according to the Santa Cruz County District Attorney’s Office.

On Monday, 34-year-old Paulo Ramirez Luna was apprehended in Mexico.

Detectives identified Luna as a suspect in the murder after a thorough investigation.

After the murder, Luna fled to Mexico, where he is a citizen.

The Santa Cruz DA’s Office has been working with Mexico officials to extradite Luna to face murder charges in the United States.

Authorities were able to capture Luna on Monday, about a year and a half after Ivan Tapia Ramirez was charged in the same murder.

At this time, Luna is in custody for murder charges. He is now awaiting to be arraigned in the Santa Cruz Superior Court

Tyler Tenorio was a junior at Santa Cruz High when he was stabbed to death outside of a convenience store on October 16, 2009.

Police officers arrived to find him stabbed multiple times in his torso. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

Santa Cruz police have identified a second suspect wanted in connection with the fatal stabbing of a Santa Cruz High School student Friday. An $825,000 arrest warrant was issued this morning for 23-year-old Paulo Luna. A third male suspect, believed to be between 18 and 25 years old, also remains at large. Officers arrested Daniel Onesto, 19, around 7 p.m. Monday after pulling over his car on River Street near Cottonwood Street. Onesto’s arrest came after gang unit investigators identified him as one of three suspects in the murder of 16-year-old Tyler Tenorio. Tenorio was stabbed multiple times in the upper torso shortly before 10 p.m. Friday near the corner of Chestnut and Laurel streets.

Detectives have learned that prior to the stabbing, a group of gang members had yelled gang slogans and territorial claims at Tenorio and his friends as they drove toward Myrtle Street. Tenorio and his friends pulled around the corner and confronted the gang members.  Witnesses told police that Tenorio was engaged in an argument with a group of males before one of them stabbed him. Tenorio died at the scene.

Santa Cruz High School officials will hold a community meeting tonight to give community members an update on the stabbing and provide information about gangs in the area. The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the school, located at 415 Walnut Ave. Extra counselors were on hand at the school this week to help students and staff deal with the loss.
