The man indicted in the 2007 cold case murder of a Coral Springs business owner was captured after a segment on the case aired on a Spanish-language TV program, police said Friday.

Gustavo Adolfo Enamorado-Dubon, 22, has been indicted on premeditated murder and armed kidnapping charges in the death of Francisco Cuevas, Coral Springs Police said.

Cuevas, 47,  was reported missing by a family member in November 2007. Parts of his body were found in a metal box in Palm Beach Gardens five months later.

It's believed Cuevas was killed in Pompano Beach at his kitchen supply business, police said.

Police say when the case aired on Univision's "Aqui y Ahora" in July 2010, they received information that led investigators to a possible suspect.

An extensive investigation by Coral Springs Police, Palm Beach Gardens detectives, ICE and the US Marshals led to Enamorado-Dubon, of Honduras, police said.

Just last week, police said they were spending $30,000 to jump-start the investigation into the murder.

Enamorado-Dubon was being held at the Broward County Jail Friday and it was unknown whether he has an attorney.

Police are still investigating the murder and believe more people may be involved. Anyone with information is asked to call the Coral Springs Police Department at 954-346-1219.
