MARSHFIELD (CBS) – A manhunt for a murder suspect in Marshfield ended late Monday morning with an arrest, after a search that lasted for several hours and forced three schools into lockdown.

Investigators say it began when Marcello Almeida stabbed 24-year-old Patricia Frois to death in a domestic dispute at the Village apartment complex off Route 139 just around 7:15 a.m.

An investigation into the crime revealed that immigrations officials have no record of anyone by the name of Marcello Almeida (DOB June 12, 1970)  having entered the country legally.

According to the Plymouth County District Attorney, “Records indicate that the visa number on the passport bearing Almeida’s name and photo was issued to a Kuwaiti female in Beruit in 2003.”

Authorities are still working to confirm the identity of the suspect.

Monday morning, an automated phone call went out from police warning nearby residents and businesses to be on the lookout for a “Hispanic male… approximately 40 years old… armed with a knife.”

Patricia Frois was killed in Marshfield on Monday.

Heavily armed police searched the area, which is near the Pembroke line, on the ground and in the air.

Martinson Elementary School, Furnace Brook Middle School and Marshfield High School were all put on lockdown at 9 a.m.  No one was allowed in or out of the schools.

The lockdown at the three schools was lifted around 11:45 a.m.

Around 11:30 a.m., state troopers and Marshfield police officers found Almeida behind a shed in a backyard.

“The suspect has injuries and is being transported to an area hospital under police guard,” state police said in a statement.

Almeida was captured about a mile away from the murder scene.

There was a trail of blood leading away from the site of the attack. Almeida may have tried to take his own life after the alleged attack.

Police K-9’s tracked the blood scent to the shed.

WBZ-TV’s Bill Shields reports.

The victim’s cousin told WBZ-TV’s Bill Shields that Almeida and Frois had been in a long relationship that began back in Brazil.

Almeida and Frois had been together about ten years and had a 5-year-old son together.

    YaKnow – maybe someone should send it to Perry. He’s got a ticket to get every illegal out of TX that has a kid in college. He’s giving in-state tuition – has anyone figured out that those illegal kids have parents attached to them who are also illegal.

    Time for the right to stop blaming everything on “Duhhhhhhhhval and Obumass” and get the blinders off and understand it is not just liberal – it is politicians in general.

      Of course it’s not just a democrat problem but we live in Massachusetts not Texas so we need to clean up our own back yard before we go after others. For some reason we seem to be a magnet for illegals. We need the current laws enforced. If you are caught here and are illegal you should be deported. No welfare, no healthcare, no instate tuition (see RI), no drivers licenses just a one way ticket out of here. Employers should be fined and fined out of business if they continue to hire illegals. Then they will have to offer better wages to fill those positions from the unemployed citizenry. I know that won’t solve the lack of jobs issue but at least these people will be paying taxes.Illegals do depress wages – I see it every day in the construction industry.

    oh what are the odds,,,,,, YET ANOTHER ILLEGAL IMMAGRANT HERE IN THIS COUNTRY AND COMMITED A CRIME…. what are the odds,,,,, 3 in a week,,, I mean it sure seems that someone has totally dropped the ball to protect others. Allowing illegal people into this country has been going on since 1990.. again WHAT A SHOCKER it seems to be a problem now… gee if you didnt open the door for them to come in and stay and never get checked on while here then maybe we wouldnt have such a problem.. OH BUT NO… tell them we have so much to offer them if they come here to live.. OH but dont worry you dont need to be here legally.. in the mean time so many folks & families struggle day to day to find work, feed themsleves and their families, have no means to get health insurance and find them selves looking at poverty our politiicians have no clue to what they have done nor do they care about the families they have hurt in the process.. blame Oh please lets be real lets put blame with a few that started the ball rolling ,,, SENIOR & JUNIOR. both where great in allowing both illegals to enter into this country and sending our jobs over seas.. lets put blame where it started,,,2 decades of it and now its a problem… gee now what do they plan on doing….
