MAN SUSPECTED OF MURDERING EMILY SANDER ARRESTED
EL DORADO, Kan. — A man suspected in the slaying of a college student who led a secret life as an Internet porn performer was arrested Wednesday in Mexico, authorities said.
Israel Mireles, 24, was arrested in Melchor Muzquiz, Mexico, U.S. Deputy Marshal Logan Kline said. Mireles was being held in that country until he can be extradited to the U.S., Kline said.
Emily Sander, 18, was last seen alive on Nov. 23 as she left an El Dorado bar with a man police identified as Mireles. Her disappearance drew nationwide attention after it was discovered that she also led a secret life as an Internet porn model named Zoey Zane.
Kline declined to provide additional details about the arrest. A news conference was scheduled for later Wednesday in El Dorado.
