A member of the Trinitarios gang was arrested last week, September 2, and charged with the murder of a federal confidential informant. 43-year-old William “Principe” Jones allegedly was joined by other gang members as they drove their victim from the Bronx to Suffolk County where they shot and killed him.
The murder of Frederick Delacruz, who was a member of the Trinitarios and also a confidential informant for law enforcement, occurred on December 28, 2019.
“Those who witness crimes and cooperate with the government to keep our communities safe are vital to our work in arresting criminals and holding them accountable for their criminal acts,” FBI Assistant Director Michael J. Driscoll said.
“Mr. Jones may have allegedly thought murdering an informant would make his problems go away," he continued. "But violence is never the answer. Instead, he’s now facing up to a lifetime in federal prison for allegedly murdering a man who would have testified against him.”
Indeed, Jones now faces grave consequences for his actions. Not just life behind bars, but the death penalty.
