The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest of Joel Emiliano Carranza.
Carranza is thought to be in Mexico, possible in either the Aguascalientes, Aguascalientes, or Morelia, Michoacán, areas. He is thought to be married with at least one child, possibly a daughter.
Carranza may be seen with his father, Emiliano Carranza, age 58, whose photograph is featured above to the far right. Emiliano Carranza is not a fugitive from the law.
Joel Emiliano Carranza is wanted for his alleged involvement in the attack of two men. On January 1, 1999, Carranza and three accomplices allegedly jumped out of a van and attacked the two men as they were walking along a street in Campbell, California. The attack allegedly stemmed from an altercation between one of the men who were walking and one of Carranza's relatives which occurred nearly a year earlier. During the attack, one of the men suffered multiple stab wounds to the chest, one of which penetrated his heart and he was pronounced dead at the scene. The other victim survived the attack.
A local arrest warrant was issued for Carranza on January 6, 1999, by the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Santa Clara, Juvenile Court, wherein he was charged with murder. A federal arrest warrant was issued for Carranza on April 14, 1999, in the United States District Court, Northern District of California, San Jose, California, wherein he was charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
Based on crime location, it is advised to contact the FBI's San Francisco Field Office at (415) 553-7400 if you have any information on Joel Emilio Carranza's whereabouts.

Thoughts? The FBI just added Joel to their featured fugitives page yesterday so he is still at large as of August 3, 2018. Hopefully this is a sign that the San Francisco Field Office will be posting more fugitives in the future as well.
I actually was aware of this case from a 2015 fugitives.com article but didn't post it since fugitives.com isn't as accurate as the FBI's website. Good thing the FBI is taking a new publicity effort with this case, especially since according to their website, the first photo of Joel to the left was actually taken in 2006. This combined with what appears to be a recent photo of his father Emilio, makes me believe that this is a matter of getting an exact address for Joel in Mexico compared to figuring out where in the country he is.
