    After months on the run, a man accused of murdering a Hollywood trans woman has been arrested after Mexican authorities dropped him off at the U.S. border on July 3, 2010. Jesus Catalan has been LAPD’s prime suspect for the 2009 murder of 24-year-old Paulina Ibarra. Mexican authorities arrested Catalan on unknown charges over the weekend in Mexico. Catalan will be brought back to L.A. where he will be booked & charged.

    This is truly wonderful news Stefanie. I hope that if he is guilty his sentence will bring some sense of closure to her family and our community.
