Wanted Jealous Lover Surrenders
Mario Hernandez surrendered in Modesto, Calif., just 90 miles south of his home city of San Jose. Hernandez told police he had visited New York and Texas in the year and half that he'd been on the run, but spent most of his time in Northern California where he has family.
Hernandez was living with his girlfriend Kathryn Tisdale, who was also arrested for harboring a fugitive. An anonymous caller told Modesto police they saw Hernandez featured on America's Most Wanted, and knew where he was living. After police surrounded the house, they say Hernandez took time to smoke a cigarette and surrendered to police 30 minutes later without incident. He was taken to Santa Clara County Jail where he was booked and charged with murder.
