Comments: On 3/14/1993 at approx. 10:00 a.m., Avalos went to the rear window of his victim's trailer located at Claman's mobile Home Park, Bostick Road, Wauchula, FL. The victim and her sister were in bed and were awakened by a tapping on the outside of the window. Avalos began a jealous argument with the victim and reached inside with his arm swinging a 4" pocket knife. The swing resulted in the knife cutting the victim's throat from ear to ear leaving a gaping wound. the victim, a 21 year old Spanish female, died from the knife wound. Anselmo Avalos has been positively identified as the suspect. Avalos has past Florida arrests for child abuse, DUI and possession of liquor by a minor.
Additionally, according to Newslibrary archive searches, the victim was murdered because she refused to date Anselmo Avalos.
Based on investigating agencies, it is advised to contact the Hardee County Sheriff's Office at 863-773-0304 and press ex. 209 for Major Randy Dey if you have any information on Anselmo's whereabouts.

Thoughts? What would have been the right thing for Anselmo to do is to have found another woman who may have wanted to date him, instead of killing the victim who didn't want to date him in the first place. Despite Anselmo only being 22 at the time of the murder, he had a lengthy criminal arrest record so I imagine that has only grown since going on the run.
