Fugitive Joe East has been wanted by the Philadelphia Police Department since 1994. He was aired on AMW in July of 2004 and in August in 2005. Below is the archived description of his case:
Police Say Jealous Ex-Boyfriend Commits Murder
Joe East is wanted by the Philadelphia Police Department for the murder of his ex-girlfriend, 20-year-old Tamara Parrish. Her family says Tamara became involved in a relationship with East while she was in high school. But, police say, as she matured and entered her freshman year in college, Tamara attempted to sever the relationship. According to officials, East refused to let her go and began stalking Tamara.
Brother, Sister Witness Murder
On the night of June 3, 1994, police say East repeatedly called the Parrish family residence using the pretense that he needed to borrow money from Tamara. Then, around midnight, police say East showed up at Tamara's home. Tamika, Tamara's sister, answered the door, and she gave him the money he supposedly needed. But, police say, he wouldn't leave; he wanted to see Tamara. According to officials, Tamika tried to close the door, but East pushed his way in and headed upstairs to Tamara's bedroom. Police say Tamara walked East back downstairs and tried to push him out the door. He got angry, and police say shot Tamara three times, point blank in the chest. Sadly, Tamara's brother and sister witnessed their sibling's murder.
Joe East fled Philadelphia and the police have no leads as to his whereabouts.
Thoughts? Unfortunately the cops seemed stumped before the AMW airings. It's now been over two decades and East is still not in custody, so he very well could have fled to his native Jamaica in my opinion.
