According to Newspapers.com and references by longtime AMW viewers (on the old FOX AMW forums), Paul Wong is accused of a August 24, 1984 murder in New York City. The victim was Dennis Moran whom he and his wife had allegedly been targeted by Wong in a cat-and-mouse-game while on their motorcycle. Dennis swore at Wong which led Paul to allegedly shoot Dennis to death.
Also according to news reports in the early 1990s, Wong is believed to have fled to Fukien Province in China, where he directed the activities of the NYC Green Dragons gang, whom he helped to found. The last reference of this case was in a 1994 news piece where the city of New York profiled 101 of their fugitives in the New York Daily Newspaper.
Paul Wong was featured on America's Most Wanted first on November 26, 1989 and was featured on the syndicated Final Justice series that aired in 1995 and 2001.
Based on crime location, it is advised to contact New York City Crimestoppers at 800-577-TIPS if you have any information on Paul Wong's whereabouts.

Thoughts? You could not believe how shocked I was to be browsing through an article on Newspapers.com (that 1994 piece with the 101 NYC fugitives), and finally coming across Paul Wong's picture without even thinking about it beforehand. I feel that he is most likely still at large as of this posting date (4/18/2018) since extradition relations between the US and China haven't improved much at all over the years. Unfortunately there is no court/warrants record page for New York City or New York State like say Florida or Maryland to 100% confirm this case is still active.
However I wanted to post this since I know we have a few longtime readers look at this site and they may remember this segment from the early days of AMW.
