AMW has aired the case of Illinois fugitive Alicia Banuelos in 2006 and 2010, both during 15-seconds of shame segments. I do consider her to be highly underrated. In 1997, Banuelos gave birth to a newborn girl in her home's bathroom after joking and denying her pregnancy because her husband had left her. Banuelos then proceeded to drown her child to death in a toilet.
Banuelos was charged but a relative posted bond. She was given supervised visits with her other daughter, four-year old Lyric Garcia. In 1999, Banuelos disappeared with Lyric during one of those visits and since then, Banuelos has been a fugitive wanted for murder and child abduction. Dispite this, no one has ever published online a photo or even a description of Lyric Garcia.
A few days after she fled, she contacted a boyfriend. That boyfriend said that he believed she was either in El Paso, Texas or Mexico. A second call to the boyfriend was traced to Zactecas, Mexico where Banuelos is believed to have friends. Unsurprisingly the family has been uncooperative. As of 2008 there have been no sightings of Banuelos. As of 2011, she was not on Cook County's list of fugitives being actively sought from Mexico.
