Thanks again to Cristina Bauss for the heads-up! According to the Lodi News he was caught in Mexico.

David Brian Bernal II, 27, was arrested Wednesday afternoon in the coastal resort city of Puerto Vallarta, where he had apparently fled after the Feb. 20 shooting of Jennifer Alyson Bushnell, 29, of Redway in Humbolt County.

“I’m shaking,” her mother, Angie Bushnell, said shortly after learning the news. “I just want him to be convicted and put away for the rest of his life.”

Bernal was booked into the jail in French Camp at 3:38 a.m. on a $5 million murder warrant, according to jail records. He is being held without bail and is scheduled to be arraigned in court Tuesday afternoon.

Gee though. In all the movies, if you made it to Mexico you were home free. Remember Thelma and Louise? And what was a “white pride” kind of guy going to do down there?

In any case, he’s caught. A local family breathes just a little bit easier.

I have to wonder how his mother’s feeling. She was the one who initially called the police.
