The next seven AMW cases I'm profiling all have a common theme, their crimes took place in locations frequented by members of the public. Starting off we have web exclusive fugitive Elton Jardines.
On May 31, 2009, Phoenix authorities say an altercation broke out between two groups of people at a Quick Trip gas station. Four women arrived at the gas station to make a purchase. The women got into a fight with another woman in a nearby SUV. Pretty soon, Elton Jardines stepped in and opened fire at the group of four women (not the woman with him in the SUV), the gunfire murdering Crystal Arrona and Joanna Lopez, as well as wounding the other two women. Authorities believe alcohol was a factor in the double murder but witnesses saw gang signs being flashed right before the shootings. The woman in the SUV was quickly arrested. Authorities were also looking for another man, Victor Navarrette in connection with this case, however with no recent media reports and no amw.com profile, I can only presume that Navarrette has been captured. Jardines is still wanted and was most recently featured a month ago as part of a Phoenix TV station's Manhunt Monday feature.
Thoughts? The amw.com profile mentions that although he's hispanic, he's most likely in Arizona or California (nothing mentioning Mexico as a possible destination). Authorities also aren't sure if he's fluent in spanish. This makes me feel that he's probably hiding out in Southern California and working as a laborer.
