It's been more than six years since Cook County prosecutors charged 22 year old Luis Macedo with killing 15 year old Alex Arellano. Chicago police found his body in the walkway of an abandoned house in the 3000 block of west 54th place in May of 2009.
Investigators say Arellano, a Bowen High School freshman, was walking down the street with his girlfriend when he was approached by a couple of Latin King Gang members. When asked what his gang affiliation was, police say Arellano told the group he didn't belong to one. For unknown reasons, agents say that's when the gang members began to attack Arellano. They say as many as eight other gang members joined in when the group began chasing Arellano down the street. Once he was cornered in a gang way between two houses, police say at least four gang members beat Arellano with baseball bats. He was then shot once in the head and his body was set on fire.
Macedo is the only suspect that's been positively identified and charged in connection with Arellano's murder. There are at least three other suspects Chicago police are attempting to identify. Macedo is identified as the leader of the group that killed Arellano.
Macedo's last known address is in Oak Lawn, where he has family. The FBI also checked out a recent tip that he was hiding in Kansas. Since they didn't find him there, agents are now re-focusing their search back on the Chicago area.
Agents describe Macedo as a Hispanic male, about 5' 5", weighing around 140 pounds, with dark hair and eyes. He also has several tattoos, including a tear drop under his left eye, a crown on the left side of his neck and the letters L and K on the right side of his neck.
He is considered armed and dangerous. If you see him, call the FBI at (312) 421-6700.
Thoughts? I believe Macedo is still at large since I haven't heard otherwise (if you hear otherwise, please let us know). Although for some reason he is no longer on the Chicago PD's website. According to another article, Macedo may also have the words "So Many" on the back of the back of neck.
And there only so many things I can say about Macedo while keeping this post PG-rated. There was absolutely no reason for what happened to Alex, an innocent good good who was NOT a gang member. No teen deserves to way the die he did, but it's especially tragic when it's a total innocent.
Please keep in mind Macedo was the only person positively identified. Other people are believed to be involved in the murder of Alex Arellano. So if you have any information on other potential participants, please contact the FBI with that as well. If Macedo is one day captured, hopefully it can lead to the arrests of everyone else involved with this case.
