For Immediate Release
Outstanding Homicide Suspect Captured
Gabriel Jaramillo who was wanted in connection with a Homicide in Eagar AZ and also wanted
for numerous counts of aggravated assault on police in Gila County has been taken into custody.
Gabriel Jaramillo was located and taken into custody by Gila County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Keith
Thompson, Deputy Wayne Dorsett and an Arizona Department of Public Safety Special
Operations Officer while Flagstaff DPS Ranger was flying overhead.
The Sheriff’s Office received a report from a local boater who said a subject approached their
boat while they were swimming on the North side of Roosevelt Lake across from windy hill.
The subject was dirty and wanting water and then got into the lake. The boater left the subject
and called the Sheriff’s Office to report the incident.
Sgt. Thompson and the AZ DPS Special Operations Officer responded to the Windy Hill boat
ramp and Deputy Dorsett responded in a Sheriff’s Office Patrol Boat. They met up with the
reporting boater who directed them to the location of the subject on the North side of Roosevelt
lake East of Salome cove. All officers then used the boat to get across Roosevelt and found the
subject who was visually identified as Gabriel Jaramillo.
Gabriel was taken into custody and flown to the Gila County Sheriff’s Office Roosevelt substation
where he was checked by Tonto Basin Fire and then transported to Cobra Valley
Regional Medical Center for evaluation with the assistance of the Gilbert Police Department
Special Operations Unit. The suspect was complaining of back pain due to falling down a cliff
with no other injuries present.
