EVERETT MAN INDICTED
An Everett man has been indicted for motor vehicle homicide in the hit-and-run crash that killed Marco Salguero-Cruz in Chelsea last year.
A Suffolk County grand jury last week returned indictments charging Jose Daniel Arevalo, 34, with motor vehicle homicide while operating under the influence of alcohol and leaving the scene of an accident causing death. The indictments stem from the June 4, 2016, crash that claimed Salguero-Cruz’s life. Arevalo has been held in lieu of bail since his arrest in Texas on Dec. 2. A date for his Superior Court arraignment has not yet been scheduled.
According to prosecutors, Salguero-Cruz was struck by a silver Toyota Camry on the night of June 4, 2016, in the area of Washington Street in Chelsea. He died of his injuries at Massachusetts General Hospital, and the operator of the car fled the scene.
During the course of an investigation, Chelsea Police detectives and State Police detectives assigned to Conley’s office recovered video from multiple cameras capturing the vehicle involved in the crash occurred. Previously-deleted footage from a private security camera was recovered and enhanced with the assistance of Conley’s Forensic Multimedia Lab and the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Digital Evidence Lab, revealing clear images of the driver allegedly involved in the fatal hit-and-run.
The images were released to the media and the public in November, and a person familiar with Arevalo contacted investigators after recognizing him in the images. Investigators were also able to independently identify Arevalo through witness statements, social media, and Registry of Motor Vehicles records, prosecutors said.
Prosecutors said that Arevalo fled to El Salvador two days after the crash but later returned to the United States. He was taken into custody in Texas on Dec. 2 and returned to Massachusetts for arraignment in Chelsea District Court on Dec. 12.
