Friday, Feb. 24, 2023

ALBUQUERQUE – APD detectives arrested murder suspect Joe Anderson today at a Northeast apartment. Anderson removed his GPS ankle monitor shortly after being released from jail pending his murder trial.


APD’s ISU detectives acted on a tip from the public and tracked Anderson to an apartment where he was staying. Detectives conducted surveillance and saw Anderson in a stolen vehicle. He was taken into custody after a use of less-lethal force.


Anderson is charged with the murder of Raymond Aviles on Aug. 6, 2022. Anderson is accused of fatally shooting Aviles as Aviles attempted to drive away on a motorcycle that Anderson had lent to him.


Anderson was previously convicted of voluntary manslaughter in 2016 for the 2010 death of Vicente Sanchez.
