KRMI personality Gaby Ramos

A 35-year-old man accused of killing a woman last year in Taylorsville and then fleeing the country has been arrested in Mexico.

Taylorsville City Police Department, Manuel Omar Burciaga-Perea was apprehended in Chihuahua, Mexico, on Nov. 24 “with the assistance of federal and state agents in Mexico and the United States Marshals Service.”

He is accused of shooting and killing Gabriela Sifuentes-Castilla, on October 17, 2021.  Sifuentes Castilla also was known by her on-air name Gaby Ramos. She had worked as a host on the radio station La Más Picosita on KRMI 1550 AM since March 2020. .

“Sifuentes-Castilla was shot seven times in the chest, arm and head, according to charging documents,” the release stated.

Police said Burciaga-Perea and Sifuentes-Castilla had been in a relationship but were not together at the time of her death.

According to the release, detectives learned that Burciaga-Perea had flown to his hometown in Chihuahua, Mexico, immediately following the shooting.

“Because Burciaga-Perea is a Mexican citizen and was in Mexico, TVPD did not have any authority to detain him despite his known location, which prompted further legal proceedings to have him arrested,” the release stated.

On Oct. 19, two days after the shooting, an arrest warrant for Burciaga-Perea was obtained.
