Police Capture Suspected Child Torturers On The Run Since 2009

A Mississippi couple at the center of a manhunt that began in 2009 have been caught in Oregon.

A Mississippi couple at the center of a manhunt that began in 2009 have been caught in Oregon.

Ramon and Janet Barreto were apprehended in Portland, Oregon, on Wednesday. The couple was on the U.S. Marshals Service's list of top 15 most wanted fugitives. They are being held in an Oregon jail.

The Barretos are accused of illegally adopting children from Guatemala and torturing them. They were arrested in 2008 after a 2-year-old girl they adopted died.


After the 2-year-old was killed, eight other adopted children were found living in the roach and feces infested home. Federal agents say the children were duct taped to their beds, punched in the stomach, and their heads were forced underwater.

“Janet Barreto is a malicious individual who allegedly abused innocent children on multiple occasions and forced them to live in appalling conditions,” William D. Snelson, U.S. Marshals Service Assistant Director for Investigative Operations, said in a 2013 statement. “Through her alleged crimes, Barreto demonstrated a blatant disregard and lack of respect for life other than her own. Adopting children and bringing them to the United States only to abuse and neglect them is a horrific crime."

Following their 2008 arrest, the couple fled after being released on $450,000 bond. Investigators began pursuing them in 2009.

  1. I am sorry for ALL of Hansen's victims, and can't help to wonder what happened to Hansen's family?

  2. How can you interpret that quote in such an illogical way? You would have to be extremely stupid if you think the author of this article was inferring there are no serial killers today. I mean, that's insane! The reason it's somewhat easier to track down serial killers today? It's called DNA profiling, dear. When that horrible Hansen was murdering his victims, there was no DNA profiling. DNA profiling didn't begin until 1985 - in England. Nowadays, DNA profiling does make it somewhat easier to identify killers.
