Mexican law enforcement located Bennett in his Cancun hotel and took him into custody shortly before noon on Saturday, according to a release from the Todd County Sheriff's Office.

A sheriff's office release states that Bennett had intended to turn himself into the FBI and contacted Todd County Sheriff Steve Och just prior to his arrest. Mexican authorities made their arrest before Minnesota investigators could communicate that information, the release states.

The arrest comes after authorities found Carol and Barry Bennett shot to death in their Long Prairie home on Aug. 21.

The sheriff's office and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension learned that Bennett purchased an airline ticket from Ohio to Cancun earlier this week. Authorities had reportedly been tracking his cellphone and credit card activity in Cancun. That information was then relayed to Mexican authorities through the FBI.
