FBI seeks public's help in capturing suspect of 2010 consulate members murders

Authorities are still looking for the man suspected of killing three people, including a pregnant United States consulate employee, near the Juarez/El Paso border in 2010.

The FBI is offering up to $100,000 for information leading to the arrest of suspected Barrio Azteca gang member Eduardo “Tablas” Ravelo.

Ravelo is only the second person from El Paso to be added to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitive list.

According to the FBI, on March 13, 2010, Barrio Azteca gang members shot and killed U.S. consulate employee Lesley Enriquez, 35, who was four months pregnant at the time; her husband Arthur Redelfs, who was also an El Paso County Sheriff’s Detention Officer; and Jorge Salcido Ceniceros, whose wife worked at the U.S. consulate in Juarez. The victims were returning from a birthday party.

Ceniceros was in a separate vehicle from Enriquez and Redelfs when the shooting occurred.

Enriquez and Redelfs’ 7-month-old daughter was in the car with them at the time of the shooting, but was not injured.

According to the FBI, the gang members told authorities that they were ordered by Ravelo to commit the murders.

On January 9, 2008, Ravelo was indicted in El Paso on multiple charges including racketeering, money laundering and conspiracy to distribute and possess controlled substances, the FBI said.

On March 9, 2011, Ravelo was indicted again on additional charges that included the murders of Enriquez and her husband.

This year marks the seventh anniversary of the murders, giving authorities yet another opportunity to ask for information leading to Ravelos’s arrest.

“It is a tremendous injustice for the victims, their loved ones and the community whenever a murder goes unsolved,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge of the El Paso Division, Douglas E. Lindquist. “Ravelo has been charged in connection with an extremely violent murder which took a young woman from her family and deprived a baby girl of her mother’s love forever. The FBI will never forget and will continue to aggressively pursue Eduardo Ravelo until he is located, captured and brought to justice.”

Ravelo is known to have used a variety of aliases to include: Eduardo Rabelo, Eduardo Rabelo-Rodriguez, Eduardo Acevedo, Eddie Ravelo, Eduardo Simental Ruiz, Eduardo Saenz, Eddie Rabelo, Javier, Antonio Rivas, Santilian Payan and Santiago, according to the FBI.

He has black hair and brown eyes, is 5 feet 9 inches tall, Hispanic and weighs about 150 to 180 pounds.
