Man Arrested for Capital Murder

By Staff Reports

DEKALB COUNTY, Ala. — On August 8, 2018, investigators with DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office travelled to Cobb County, Ga. after receiving a tip that Noe Mateo was in their jurisdiction. The DeKalb County Grand Jury issued an indictment on the same day for Mateo for the charge of capital murder. The charge stems from the death of a child on February 21, 2017. At the time of the murder, Noe Mateo, 24, resided in Crossville in the same home as the victim. Mateo is a relative of the child as well. Mateo is currently in custody in Georgia and will be extradited back to DeKalb County as soon as possible where he will be held without bond.

Sheriff Harris says, “I’m proud of the job our investigators have done over the course of this case. They have worked the case tirelessly, spending many hours interviewing people and looking over evidence to bring it to a close for justice for the child. We continue to pray for this family as they grieve.”
