On September 2, 2015, the Dallas Police Department began the murder investigation of Dr. Kendra Hatcher, a dentist murdered inside a parking garage in the Uptown area of Dallas.  After further investigation, an arrest warrant was issued for Brenda Delgado for the commission of this offense.  During the search for Ms. Delgado, it was determined that she fled to Mexico.  Dallas Police Detectives partnered with federal law enforcement agencies, and through this collaborative effort, Ms. Delgado was taken into custody on Friday, April 8, 2016, by the Mexican authorities, along with the FBI.  Ms. Delgado has been extradited and has been turned over to Dallas County. 

Special thanks to our federal partners: FBI, ATF, U.S Marshals, U.S Attorney’s Office, and the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office.

The Dallas Police Department wishes to extend its thanks and appreciation to the Mexican Government, the U.S. Department of Justice, and the FBI for their work in securing the capture of Capital Murder suspect Brenda Delgado yesterday in Mexico. 

Delgado’s capture  is  another step in the process of seeking justice for the family of Dr. Kendra Hatcher.  We will continue to work with our partners diligently toward that end.
