Francisca Hernandez-Ramirez disappeared last October. Her parents say she went to a party and never came home. Her body was found near Prosser in the Yakima River in February. Cops had a suspect in mind, 22 year old Jesus Perales, but he fled to California.
" The information we have going back to spring of this year, it wasn't until late last week that detectives with the violent crimes task force, working on another matter, developed information that indicated the suspect had returned to the Yakima Valley," said Stew Graham with the Yakima Sheriff's Office.
Perales was arrested Tuesday. His prelimary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
