LAWRENCEVILLE -- An accused child-killer returned to Gwinnett on Thursday, escorted by the FBI following a July arrest in south-central Mexico, FBI spokesman Stephen Emmett said.
Christian Vasquez, 28, a former Lawrenceville resident is accused of killing his 2-year-old daughter and hiding her body in an attic in 2007. Vasquez left the body in the attic, where it stayed for about 16 months, and fled to Mexico. Vasquez was indicted in 2008 and charged with murder, felony murder, aggravated assault and cruelty to children. Vasquez was also charged with a federal arrest warrant that said he made an unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
Police believe Vasquez struck his young daughter, Prisi, with an object, which caused a fatal fracture to her skull in January or February 2007 at his family's Stillwater Lane home.
Jail records show Vasquez was booked in to the Gwinnett County Jail at 9:20 p.m. Thursday. He was being held without bond.
