The alleged perpetrator of the murders in Matapalo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica, was arrested by the Nicaragua’s National Police in the rural community of Las Mojarras, in San Francisco Libre, after his father called police.

Silva ran to his country, evading authorities, after committing the gruesome crime of killing five people, including three children, on Sunday February 14, 2016. The bodies were not discovered until Tuesday February 16.

Two children, a four year-old and seven month-old survived the attack, and are recovering at the Children’s hospital.

Nicaragua’s Constitution does not allow extradition of its citizens, but the Criminal Code allows for Nicaraguans to be tried in the country for crimes committed abroad.

Costa Rican authorities have submitted their findings and evidence to Nicaragua’s Fiscalia (prosecutor’s office) for Silva to be tried in the country.
