Man Who Carried Out Las Vegas Bombing Recaptured After Escape

(RepublicanReport.org) – Porfirio Duarte-Herrera has been serving a life sentence for well over a decade after he killed a food service worker in Las Vegas in 2007 by placing a motion-sensitive pipe bomb in a coffee cup. However, the convicted killer managed to escape from Southern Desert Correctional Center in late September. The Las Vegas Police Department (LVPD) eventually caught up with Duarte-Herrera on Wednesday, September 28, four days after his escape.

Some reports have suggested the bomber used a dummy to temporarily fool guards into believing he was still in his cell, giving him a three-day headstart. He allegedly used battery acid to get through the window of his cell and escape the medium-security facility.

The announcement that the 42-year-old was missing came on Tuesday morning; police did not apprehend him until Wednesday night. A bus station worker reportedly recognized the fugitive as he was waiting to board a bus from Las Vegas to Tijuana, Mexico. The individual contacted law enforcement, and officers were able to arrest the escapee before he began his journey.

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak (D) was critical of the situation and stated the Nevada Department of Corrections would undertake a review to get to the bottom of how Duarte-Herrera managed to escape. He also reportedly requested the resignation of Nevada Department of Corrections Director Charles Daniels, who granted the request.
