Suspect Arrested In New Orleans For 1982 OKC Homicide Case

Posted: Updated:
NEW ORLEANS -

A suspect connected to a homicide that took place in northwest Oklahoma City back in 1982 was arrested in Louisiana on Thursday.

Police in New Orleans arrested 65-year-old Raul Sierra at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday. An arrest warrant for first-degree murder was issued for Sierra on Wednesday.

Sierra is accused of shooting and killing Wilfredo Roberto Matos Osorio back in November 1982. DNA evidence helped investigators link Sierra to the crime.

Orsorio’s body was discovered by a bridge embankment in Pottawatomie County, but investigators say several witnesses claimed the killing occurred in a home in the 6900 block of Woodbridge Rd., located near NW 122nd St. and N. MacArthur Ave.

According to a report, agents first tracked Sierra to a home in Miami, Fla. but he was not there. Additional leads, however, helped agents track Sierra to New Orleans, where he was taken into custody.    

Sierra is one of two people implicated in the murder. Authorities say the second suspect is dead. Sierra will first be booked into a New Orleans jail before eventually being extradited back to Oklahoma. A mug shot is not yet available.
