U.S. Marshals Capture Oklahoma Fugitive In Mexico
An Oklahoma man accused of raping a child is now in the custody of U.S. Marshals. He was picked up in Mexico.
Billy Wayne Durfey faces 12 counts of sexual abuse of a child out of Garvin County. Authorities issued a warrant for Durfey's arrest back in February. U.S. Marshals in Oklahoma City have followed several leads in different regions of the country to locate Durfey. U.S Marshals in Oklahoma City developed information that Durfey was possibly in Mexico and coordinated with Mexican authorities to attempt to locate him.
Mexican authorities arrested Durfey Wednesday in Monterey. He awaits extradition back to Oklahoma now.
