Arrest of Fugitive Felon:
Tyler Adams, a 51-year-old fugitive and self-proclaimed ‘master of disguise,’ was apprehended by federal authorities in Newport Beach, California, ending a four-year search.
He faces extradition to Hawaii, where he’s been wanted since his escape from state custody in 2019.
Murder Suspect Linked to Girlfriend’s Death:
Adams, sought for questioning by the FBI, is connected to the 2022 death of his girlfriend, Racquel Sabean.
Her body was discovered in a cooler in Tijuana, Mexico. Adams had been serving time for theft convictions when he absconded during a work furlough in 2019.
Aliases and Evasion:
Operating under multiple aliases such as Aaron Lee and David Phillips, Adams was last seen entering the US as ‘Aaron Bain’ in 2022, a day after Mexican authorities questioned him about Sabean’s disappearance.
His girlfriend’s decomposed body was found in a vehicle in Tijuana.
Family Suspicions and Red Flags:
Racquel’s father, David Sabean, expressed strong suspicions about Adams, citing red flags in his behavior.
Adams presented himself as a ‘Mormon,’ but David became skeptical upon noticing a tattoo, which contradicted his claimed faith.
Escape and Surveillance Evidence:
Following police questioning in Mexico, Adams fled the country and crossed into the US under a new alias.
Surveillance footage from the area where Racquel’s body was found allegedly incriminates Adams, according to her father, who detailed the attire Adams wore during the alleged incident.
Legal Proceedings and Investigation:
Although Adams remains a suspect in Racquel’s murder, he hasn’t been charged. Despite his capture, the FBI continues its investigation, seeking more information regarding his involvement in the case.
Adams was previously detained in Mexico during an Amber Alert for his infant daughter, who was found safe with a babysitter.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
