Delgado added to FBI's Most Wanted List

Delgado added to FBI's Most Wanted List

Brenda Delgado is accused of plotting the death of a Dallas dentist who was dating her former boyfriend. After the murder, she fled to Mexico, according to authorities. All this took place on or about September 2, 2015. 

Since that time and for seven months, Delgado was on the run and on Wednesday, April 6, 2016, the FBI added her to the list of the 10 most wanted fugitives, making her the only female on the list.  The victim, Kendra Hatcher, was shot by Delgado’s accomplices in a parking garage in Dallas. Reports say the murder was fueled by Delgado’s jealousy.  "Apparently she was jealous because the victim was dating her ex-boyfriend”, said Special Agent Jason Ibrahim of the FBI's Dallas division.

Delgado hired these people to kill Hatcher but she is accused with capital murder. Thomas Class Sr. of the FBI's Dallas division said, "Although she didn't pull the trigger herself, she is still responsible for the murder."

The two co-conspirators were captured shortly after the murder, but Delgado managed to flee the country towards Mexico immediately after the federal agents questioned her about the killing. In Mexico, she is believed to have contacts, even from cartel sources. This is how she managed to stay at large.  The FBI offered $100,000 for information on her whereabouts.

The death penalty is not allowed in Mexico, so in the event the FBI seeks extradition of Delgado, the death sentence had to be off the table.

On Friday, April 8, Brenda Delgado was captured in Mexico two days after she was placed on the list of the top 10 most wanted. She was taken into custody by Mexican authorities in the city of Torreon. Charged with capital murder, Delgado faces a life sentence.

Delgado became the ninth woman to ever be on the list of the Top 10 FBI’s most wanted since its creation in 1950.
