In 2001 AMW aired Cesar Castaneda once during a commercial break. In 1995, 16-year old Cesar and several other caretakers of an elderly man in El Paso, Texas, burglarized the man's home. The man surprised the suspects who proceeded to beat him to death with blunt objects.
Cesar was arrested two months later and was released on bond. He fled and a state warrant was issued in 1997 for Capital Murder, Burglary and Aggravated Robbery.
It seems like many fugitive cold cases, this case has managed to have hit a brick wall. Even though it's a cold case, I'm surprised that El Paso's highly successful Manhunt Monday program has not featured Castaneda. As far as Castaneda's current whereabouts, he's probably somewhere in Mexico but where exactly is up in the air.
