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.

Man who ‘terrorized’ store employees in armed robberies gets 39 years – Times Herald

WHITE PLAINS – A man convicted of zip-tying employees’ hands and holding them at gunpoint while robbing a New Windsor Rite Aid and a Town of Newburgh ShopRite of more than $26,000 was sentenced to 39 years in federal prison on Friday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York announced.

Lawrence Brown, 46, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Nelson Stephen Roman after a jury convicted him on March 9, 2017, of two counts of robbery and two counts of brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.

He had been charged with dressing as a Pepsi deliveryman to steal $5,911 from the Rite Aid’s safes in November 2013 and holding three employees hostage for hours before stealing $20,140 from the ShopRite safes in April 2014.

The robberies “terrorized” employees, said Geoffrey S. Berman,

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

Teacher is the most wanted job of South Korean students for 11 straight years

By Park Si-soo

School teacher topped the list of most wanted job among middle and high school students, the education ministry said, based on its nationwide survey.

The job has headed the list since 2007, reflecting students’ interest in occupations with relatively strong security amid the prolonged uncertain economy. Other public jobs, such as police officer or military officer, and strictly licensed positions, such as doctor or nurse, also ranked highly.

The ministry has conducted the annual survey of most wanted jobs since 2007 and the latest was based on responses from 27,678 students and 2,798 teachers at 1,200 schools, and 21,018 parents.

Software programmer and mechanical engineer were among the top 10 in a survey of high school students, reflecting the IT industry boom.

More than 60 per cent of responding students said they chose their wanted jobs after considering their “interests or talents.” But experts say their choices could have been influenced by

10 Years of Digital Billboards

While some billboard alerts focus on wanted criminals, including the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives, many also cover important safety reminders, often tailored to the local area. Public safety messages on billboards remind the public to call the FBI with information on issues such as Internet crime, laser strikes, border corruption, human trafficking, and identity theft.

Electronic billboards are also a key tool in getting information from the public in a crisis when investigative speed is critical. In the immediate aftermath of the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting on October 1, the FBI posted a seeking information message on billboards around Las Vegas and received more than 4,000 tips from the public.

Created in December 2007, the National Digital Billboard Initiative has directly led to 57 fugitive captures and has assisted with numerous other investigations. The FBI can place information on up to 7,300 billboards in 46 states. Additionally, in some cities,

Las Vegas suspect’s father was gambler, bank robber and on FBI’s Most Wanted list for 8 years

Las Vegas shooting suspect Stephen Paddock didn’t have a criminal history, but his father was on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list from 1969 to 1977.

Why was he on the FBI’s Most Wanted list?

Benjamin Hoskins Paddock, father of Stephen Paddock, was indicted in 1960 on three counts of robbing Phoenix branches of Valley National Bank, the Arizona Republic reported on Oct. 6, 1960. He was accused of stealing close to $25,000 and was arrested in Las Vegas after his third bank robbery.

Benjamin Paddock escaped a federal prison in La Tuna, Texas, on Dec. 31, 1968, having served eight years of a 20-year sentence, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

About six months later, Benjamin Paddock was placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list and the FBI described him as a “diagnosed psychopath and is considered ‘extremely dangerous,’” the Arizona Republic reported June 11, 1969.

Paddock remained on the Most Wanted list until 1977, Newsweek reported.

The following year,

FBI: Fugitive cop caught 14 years after skipping RICO trial – Chicago Sun

Eddie C. Hicks has been due in court ever since June 9, 2003.

That’s when the feds planned to put the former Chicago police sergeant on trial for allegedly leading a rip-off crew in the 1990s that shook down drug dealers for cash, drugs and guns using bogus search warrants supposedly signed by a Cook County judge.

Hicks skipped town instead, leaving his co-defendants to face stiff sentences while he went on the lam. But now — 14 years later — the 68-year-old has been arrested in Detroit and is headed back to Chicago in federal custody, the FBI has announced.

A judge here revoked the bond of the 30-year CPD veteran in 2003.

Defense attorney Joseph “The Shark” Lopez represented one of Hicks’ co-defendants, Lawrence Knitter, a former CPD mechanic already out of prison after being handed a nine-year prison sentence in 2005. Lopez said he spoke to Knitter after learning of Hicks’

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
