CJ Quote: Child Killer Escapee Back in U.S. Custody

     [On January 24, 2014], nearly six years after he escaped from prison, one of the U.S. Marshals Services's 15 Most Wanted fugitives has been extradited from Mexico and returned to that same prison….Convicted child killer Edward Salas was serving time for murder when he escaped from the Curry County Detention Center in Clovis, New Mexico. At the time of his escape, Salas was serving a life sentence….

     In 2005 Salas, with two of his brothers and two other people, planned to murder a teen named Ruben Perez in his home, reportedly in retaliation for an argument at Clovis High School. Instead, they killed the teen's brother, Carlos Perez, who was sleeping in the same bedroom.
