Bruised, thirsty and desperate, a 57-year-old murder suspect surrendered to officers quietly Wednesday afternoon, it was the weary conclusion to dramatic events that started with a mysterious murder, a lucky break, an 80-mile, high-speed chase, barely averted head-on collisions, a shoot-out with officers and a flight into the desert. After five days in the desert north of Roosevelt Lake, Gabriel “Gabby” Jaramillo gladly drank from officers’ water bottles when they finally caught up with him. Gila County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Tim Scott, who oversaw a command center at the lake, said he was somewhat surprised at Jaramillo’s sudden surrender, “but on the other hand, he had been out there almost five days with no fresh drinking water.” An alert boater who Jaramillo approached on the shores of the lake tipped officers to his presence.
Police have apprehended Gabriel Jaramillo at Roosevelt Lake, ending a four-day manhunt, authorities said.
