Man wanted for Dakota Dunes murder apprehended in Mexico

The man who authorities believe is responsible for the murder of 23-year-old Jordan Beardshear in Dakota Dunes has been apprehended after a nearly two week manhunt.

Thirty-nine-year-old Alfredo Castellanos-Rosales is being charged with first and second-degree murder. Beardshear was found dead inside her apartment on Wednesday, April 26.

Officials say Beardshear was found with “significant injuries” and stab wounds.

The US Marshals Service in collaboration with Mexican authorities, The Union County Sheriff’s Office and South Dakota DCI worked to locate Castellanos-Rosales over the last two weeks, and he was officially taken into custody Friday evening in Mexico.

He has since been expelled from Mexico and turned over to US Marshals in Laredo, Texas where he awaits extradition to South Dakota.
