Spokane Valley Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Detectives, who have been continually and aggressively working this horrific incident, learned members of the U.S. Marshal’s Office and law enforcement personnel in Southeastern Idaho took homicide suspect Gilberto Delgado into custody without incident.
Investigators here in Spokane Valley believed Delgado may have fled to the area of Pocatello Idaho and have been in contact with law enforcement agencies along the possible travel routes.
