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

‘Most Wanted’ Held On $10M Bond In Brutal 2009 Murder, Body …

(STMW) — Eight years ago, Luis Macedo decided to drop out of gang life in Chicago, and moved to Mexico to build a quiet life as a barber and boxing coach, his lawyer said Monday, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.

But that decision came after Macedo and his fellow members of a Gage Park Latin Kings crew realized police had arrested a fellow gang member who could implicate them in the murder of 15-year-old Alex Arellano, Cook County prosecutors said.

Macedo fled to Mexico, but not before telling his fellow gang members to stay silent about the killing, and directing them to set fire to Arellano’s still-undiscovered body that had been shot and ran over by a car.

In the years since, Macedo, now 29, had worked a variety of jobs and was raising three children in Mexico, Assistant Public Defender Chandra Smith said Tuesday at a bond hearing at the Leighton Criminal

FBI’s Most Wanted: 37 of 68 Murder Fugitives Not US Born

The recent capture of an MS-13 gang member who entered the country illegally and is listed as one of the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted fugitives helped reveal that more than half of the most-wanted fugitive murder suspects are from countries other than the U.S.

Out of the 68 wanted murder suspects listed by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation, 37 were born outside of the U.S. The lists includes 23 murder suspects from Mexico, five from Central American countries, and two others who are believed to be from El Salvador but available records do not provide a conclusive answer. One of the fugitive foreign nationals is wanted for the horrific murder of a U.S. Border Patrol Agent.

The MS-13 gang member was identified by the FBI as Walter Yovany Gomez, an illegal alien from Honduras who was wanted on murder charges for the death of another MS-13 gang member

Most Wanted murder suspect killed 24 years ago by truck | NJ.com

ELIZABETH — A previously unidentified man who was killed by a truck 24 years ago has been identified as the person suspected of killing his girlfriend the same week, authorities said Wednesday. 

An archived fingerprint match identified the man fatally struck by a tractor-trailer in Elizabeth on Oct. 28, 1993, as then 31-year-old Wilmane Nicolas, who was wanted in the fatal stabbing of Magalie Francois, acting Union County Prosecutor Grace Park said.

Nicolas, of Elizabeth, was killed around 8:45 a.m. near Routes 19 and East Grand Street, officials said. He had no identification on him when he was killed, and investigators were unable to figure out who he was.

The driver who struck Nicolas told police a pedestrian ran in front of his tractor-trailer, The Star-Ledger previously reported. No charges were filed in the crash. 

Two days later, authorities found the body of Francois, 31, on the 600 block of Monroe Avenue. They said an autopsy

How a secret room led the FBI to solve the mystery of a police chief’s murder after 27 years

When investigators picked through the tan split level house on Maplecrest Drive, a textbook suburban street in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, 60 miles south of Boston, they found something that wasn’t supposed to be there. Inside a closet, there was a secret door. Through the door, stood a small room. In the room, they found a walking cane.

The search last year shot momentum back into the long-stalled hunt for Donald Eugene Webb. A dog-loving jewel thief with roots in New England’s mafia circles, Webb was wanted in connection with the 1980 murder of a small-town Pennsylvania police chief, the longest cold case involving a slain officer in US history.

Late last week, local and federal authorities were back at the Maplecrest address, a home owned by Webb’s ex-wife. This time police dug through the backyard, eventually uncovering human remains, according to the Boston Globe.

On Friday, the
