Austin-area man who fled before murder trial may be added to FBI’s Most Wanted

TRAVIS COUNTY – The search for Kevin Waguespack, a man who authorities say fled nearly one month ago just as he was about to go to trial in his girlfriend’s murder, has gone cold. 

Waguespack is accused of killing his girlfriend in 2015. The case sparked controversy after a Travis County Judge Tamara Needles removed Waguespack’s ankle monitoring device, which he said interfered with his ability to get a job while out on bond. Waguespack had been showing up for all of his court appearances before he vanished.

Travis murder suspect is candidate for ‘America’s Most Wanted’

Federal officials searching for a Travis County murder defendant say he has vanished with no trace of cell phone or credit card use as they work to get him on the FBI’s “Most Wanted” list.

Kevin Waguespack is accused of murder in his girlfriend’s 2015 death, but fled after a judge allowed him to remove an ankle monitor he had been assigned when he posted bail.

Waguespack may have been planning to leave the area for a significant period, allowing him to stash money and other means for survival, said Hector Gomez, a supervisory deputy for the U.S. Marshals Service. He could also be receiving help, he said.

“If there were others involved, or if he had a plan to intentionally not appear before the court, then that certainly puts us days, if not weeks, at a disadvantage in now trying to find him,” Gomez said Tuesday. “In our estimation right

Illinois man who made FBI’s ‘Ten Most Wanted’ list charged with murder, unlawful flight – WLS

A Chicago man who made the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted” list was charged Monday with first-degree murder. He also faces federal charges of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution after his arrest Sunday at O’Hare International Airport.

Luis Macedo had been on the run for eight years and was arrested in Guadalajara, Mexico, by Mexican federal immigration officers in coordination with the FBI. Former FBI director James Comey had placed Macedo on the “Ten Most Wanted” list in 2016 with a $100,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

Macedo was charged for his alleged participation in the 2009 murder of 15-year-old Alex Arellano in the 3000-block of West 54th Place in Chicago’s Gage Park neighborhood. Arellano was beaten with baseball bats, shot, run over with a car and set on fire because he refused to “throw up a crown” for the Latin Kings gang, police said.

Four others have already been
