The Portland Police Bureau would also like to credit the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of International Affairs who provided significant assistance in securing the defendant's extradition from Mexico.


CRISTOBAL MEDRANO-ALVARADO was captured in Mexico in March 2020 after the FBI obtained information about the fugitive's whereabouts. The FBI's Legal Attach? in Mexico City worked with local authorities to locate and arrest MEDRANO-ALVARADO. After extradition proceedings, which were facilitated by the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office, MEDRANO-ALVARADO was transported to the U.S.

On Saturday November 28th, 2020, CRISTOBAL MEDRANO-ALVARADO arrived in Portland, courtesy of the U.S. Marshals Service. MEDRANO-ALVARADO was met by an FBI agent and a Portland Police Bureau Cold Case Detective.

MEDRANO-ALVARADO'S extradition stems from the November 23, 2008 homicide of ABEL DELGADO-MORALES, 35, who died from a gunshot wound in an apartment in southeast Portland. JOSE CARVAJAL-MOTA, a co-defendant in the homicide of DELGADO MORALES, was convicted in 2010 of Manslaughter I and after serving an 11 year sentence he was deported to Mexico by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The Portland Police Bureau would like to thank our federal, local and Mexican law enforcement partners that enabled the capture, transport and custody of MEDRANO-ALAVARADO. Although 12 years later, the pursuit of justice for the victims of homicide and their families remains a dedicated priority.
