Salvador Casian-Garcia and Araceli Medina Wanted for Alleged Child Rape and Murder
ID #22-171 Edgar Salvador Casian-Garcia and ID #22-172 Araceli Medina and Victim Edgar Casian Jr.
Couple on the run after being charged with murder and child rape.
The U.S. Marshals in the Eastern District of Washington state are asking for the public’s help to find 33-year-old Edgar Salvador Casian-Garcia and 37-year-old Araceli Medina. Both Casian and Medina have nationwide warrants for their arrest for Murder in the 1st Degree, Rape of a Child in the 1st Degree and Child Abuse in the 1st Degree.
The charges stem from a horrific discovery of the body of a young boy and a follow-up investigation. On Feb. 5, 2022, hikers found human remains in rural Benton County. Through dental records, the remains were identified as 8-year-old Edgar Casian Jr.
He had been reported missing in May of 2021. Pasco police say Casian Sr. and Medina claimed they hadn’t seen the child since September of 2020 and didn’t know where he was.
The couple is accused of sexually abusing and trafficking Edgar Jr. as well as a 9-year-old girl and a 3-year-old girl. Deputies say they were recovered in Tijuana last November after they escaped from a hotel where they were staying with Medina.
The U.S. Marshals are also very concerned about the welfare of another 3 or 4 children belonging to Araceli Medina.
They are currently unaccounted for and no other information on their identities is available. Deputies say they want to make sure the kids are safe before they meet the same fate as little Edgar jr.
The U.S. Marshals strongly believe that there are people who can provide information to help them locate the couple.
It’s believed Casian and Medina fled to Nayarit or Sinaloa, Mexico or possibly Canada. Any information you can provide will be kept anonymous.
Deputies say the fugitives have made several threats against friends and family in an attempt to intimidate them to keep them from cooperating with law enforcement.
