Most Wanted: Suspect still sought nearly 9 years after McMinnville murder

MCMINNVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Wanted on a charge of criminal homicide, Jose Rocha has been a regular on the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s “Top 10 Most Wanted” list for years.

On the night of May 30, 2009, McMinnville police said the 20-year-old, who also goes by the name Cesar Morales, went to a home on Martin Street, where he was reportedly involved in an altercation with a man who lived there.

Rocha is accused of pulling out a knife and stabbing the victim in the chest, causing the man’s death.

Investigators said it is possible that Rocha is still in the area of McMinnville, but that he may have fled to Texas or Mexico.

The year prior to the stabbing, Rocha was charged with driving while impaired, but he does not appear to have an extensive criminal history.

A $5,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to the his arrest.

20 years after fire, David Koresh’s tragic spell lingers

This story originally published April 14, 2013

WACO — Clive Doyle is a pleasant-looking man of 72, with wavy graying hair. Australia lingers in his accent. He wore a leather jacket on the chilly recent afternoon when we spent more than an hour together at a picnic table in a Waco park. He was soft-spoken, articulate and seemingly very sane.

Yet 20 years ago this Friday, this same man was one of only nine Branch Davidians to survive the internationally televised inferno on the Texas prairie. Killed that day near Waco were cult leader David Koresh and 73 followers, including Doyle’s 18-year-old daughter, Shari, and 20 children under 14. Before the fire and the 51-day standoff with the federal government, Doyle’s daughter had been one of many women and girls of the cult taken into Koresh’s bed. Koresh — who preached that he was the Lamb of God, drove a

FBI Fugitive-Turned-Entrepreneur Finds Success After Over a Decade in Prison

After being placed on the FBI’s most wanted list in 1993, Malik Wade spent seven years on the run, followed by more than a decade in prison. Nevertheless, the time he spent behind bars has helped him transform into an entrepreneur and dynamic community leader.

 

Bad Turn

The 46-year-old mentor, author, and entrepreneur was raised in a low-income neighborhood in San Francisco during the ’80s. In his youth, he was a good student and promising athlete with a bright future. However, Wade took a dramatic turn as a teenager during the crack cocaine epidemic that swept through America’s inner cities. As a result, he spent the next two decades of his life on a turbulent—yet, amazing—journey.

“I started selling drugs at 15 and by the time I graduated from high school, I was already being investigated by the FBI,” Wade told Black Enterprise. “At the age of 21, I was actually indicted by
