Authorities in Los Angeles are searching for Werner "Blue" Francisco in connection with a senseless homicide. AMW aired him twice in 2011.
Back in 1990s, Cosme Gonzales immigrated from Mexico to Los Angeles with a dream to start his own tamale business. Gonzales would wake up early every morning, prepare tamales, and sell them to people on their morning commute. Unfortunately, Cosme worked in Los Angeles's Westlake neighborhood, which was plagued by dangerous gang members including the Rockwood gang. On Feb 27, 2009, Rockwood gang member Werner "Blue" Francisco approached Cosme and told him he had to pay the Rockwood gang extortion payments. Cosme ran off as Werner then proceeded to shoot him to death, Werner and a second gang member then fled.
Thoughts? The amw.com page mentions he may have fled to Mexico or Guatemala, but his reenactment mentioned he may have fled to South America. I looked up the Rockwood gang and it appears they're only active in Los Angeles, so it's hard to say if Werner fled south of the border, who he may have hooked up with to continue doing criminal activity.
