Longo Back in Newport


Byline: SUSAN PALMER The Register-Guard

NEWPORT - Christian Longo waived extradition in Texas and returned under guard late Tuesday to the coastal town where the bodies of his wife and three children were discovered dumped in two nearby bays.

Longo arrived at the Lincoln County Jail shortly before midnight and was scheduled for arraignment this morning on aggravated murder charges in the four deaths.

Sadie Ann Longo, 3, was found Dec. 22 in water nearby. The children's mother, MaryJane Longo, 34, and 2-year-old Madison were found Dec. 27 in Yaquina Bay.

Longo was escorted back to Oregon by two officers from the Lincoln County Major Crime Team, the sheriff said. Longo flew into Portland on a commercial flight from Houston and sat in the last row near a window. Police kept clear the three rows ahead of him.

"Having Christian Longo in custody is a major burden off all law enforcement agencies," O'Brien said.

The 27-year-old fugitive was arrested Sunday in Mexico by about 20 Mexican officers and FBI agents, who got a tip from a tourist who had met Longo at a hostel in Cancun.

The FBI had placed Longo on its Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list on Friday.

Longo waived formal extradition proceedings in Mexico and was flown to Houston on Monday. During a brief appearance Tuesday in Harris County Court in Houston, Longo waived extradition to Oregon. …
