Jose Emilio Rodriquez is wanted by the Savannah Police Department for molestation of a 13-year-old girl and for questioning in the murder of Laura Newman.
Newman was found murdered at 3:30 am on January 1, 1985. Newman was baby sitting for her neighbor's three children, while they went to a New Years Eve celebration. When the parents returned home, they found Newman dead on the couch, covered with a blanket. The three children were not harmed. There was no sign of forced entry, leading investigators to believe that she knew the suspect. She was sexually assaulted and stabbed to death.
The following evening another 13-year-old girl was molested. The second victim identified Rodriquez as her attacker. Savannah police issued a warrant for his arrest for child molestation, and would like to question him about Newman's murder. Rodriquez lived in the same apartment complex as Newman.
Thoughts? The above was from the AMW archives for the April 5th, 2003 episode of America's Most Wanted. In case there's any confusion, Laura was 13-years old when she was murdered, and Rodriquez is believed to have molested another 13-year old girl. I can't find any articles about his capture, so I am assuming he is still at large as of this posting date (9/12/2015). Unfortunately, there's more questions than answers here. Even the old AMW archive doesn't list what Rodriquez's age was at the time. This is going to be a tough case to solve, but for the memory of Laura, it's important to never give up.
