ATLANTA -- A man is now being held in the Gwinnett County Jail, who investigators believe killed his daughter in 2007.

According to FBI Special Agent in Charge Mark Guiliano, 28-year-old Christian Vasquez's extradition process was completed on Thursday. Immediately after, FBI agents escorted Vasquez back to Gwinnett County.

Guiliano said Prisi Vasquez, daughter of the fugitive, was only two years old when her homicide happened. Vasquez allegedly hit his daughter with an object that killed her, then he hid her body in the attic of their home in Lawrenceville.

Shortly after the incident, Gwinnett County Sheriff's Investigators obtained an arrest warrant, charging Vasquez with murder. From information found, investigators believed he had fled to Mexico.

Mexican Law Enforcement authorities arrested Vasquez in July 2010 in Puebla, a town located in south central Mexico.

Earlier, on August 27, 2008, a Gwinnett County Grand Jury indicted Vasquez, charging him with murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, and cruelty to children. Then, a federal warrant was obtained which charged Vasquez with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

Gwinnett County District Attorney's Office officials found out that Vasquez was in Mexico, so they got a provisional arrest warrant that allowed for his arrest there.
