Suspected ex-marine drunk on steroids wanted in murder of young mother caught overseas – Crime Online


Raymond “RJ” McLeod, Jr. is arrested in El Salvador for murder.

The ex-Marine had been on the run for six years after the brutal death of 30-year-old Krystal Mitchell. The young mom was found beaten and strangled in a San Diego condominium in June 2016. The couple had only been dating for a few weeks when they went on vacation.

By the time police arrived at the apartment while Mitchell and McLeod were staying with his friends, McLeod had fled in Krystal’s car, which was found at the San Diego airport. McLeod then rented a car at the airport and drove to Mexico. From there he traveled to Belize and then to El Salvador. McLeod reportedly worked as a teacher.
