The case of John Feiga is a very unusual one, a fugitive profiled on both America's Most Wanted and Unsolved Mysteries, who would later become a homicide victim.
John Feiga and Erica Richarson were boyfriend and girlfriend in Florida when Erica filed a restraining order against John. He was arrested in 1996 for domestic battery and again in 1997 for violating a domestic violence injunction. The restraining order expired on Dec 2, 1997. Six days later, Erica was found murdered in her apartment, she had been stabbed over 60 times. Erica's car was found in Lafayette, Louisiana and John became wanted for questioning in Erica's murder.
In 2008, authorities in Louisiana submitted DNA evidence from an unidentified man who had been murdered in 1998. The DNA matched blood thought to be John Feiga's found at the crime scene. Army dental records confirmed the unidentified body in Louisiana was that of John Feiga. Florida authorities then announced that they had found the body of the man they say killed Erica Richarson. Although now the question became, who murdered John Feiga?
I do understand that a lot of people aren't going to feel any pity for John Feiga, and I don't either. However I am very curious as to who killed him. I have a few theories on why he may have been murdered.
1) The first is that he was hiding out with someone in Louisiana who either knew that he was wanted for questioning in Erica's murder, or learned about it. That person may not have wanted to be around a wanted fugitive so they killed him.
2) The second is that he may have been the victim of a crime that had nothing to do with his fugitive status. He could have been the victim of a carjacking or robbery for example.
3) Being a wanted fugitive, he may have been broke and got involved in criminal activity to get money. He could have been killed as a result of a drug dispute for example.
