On April 20, 1987, gang members Miguel Angel Zarajoza and 20-year old Fidel Para Flores were arguing as to who would sell marijuana on a Van Nuys street corner. Authorities say that fellow gang member, Christian Alfredo Cruz handed Miguel a handgun. Miguel then allegedly shot and killed Fidel Flores, and shot and wounded a 17-year old bystander.
Christian Cruz pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter for his role in the shooting. Miguel is believed to have fled to Mexico after the shooting and has been at large ever since.
Based on crime location, it is advised to contact the Van Nuys Community Police Station at 818-374-9500 if you have any information on Miguel Angel Zarajoza's whereabouts.

Thoughts? As of today, April 14, 2019, Miguel Zarajoza's case in the Los Angeles Court Records page shows as "case pending" with no movement since 1987, so Miguel is unfortunately still at large. Thankfully, the access fee was only ($1.33 CDN). Miguel was on the LAPD Most Wanted page from 2000-2006, but was not added to the current online version along with some other fugitives out of the Van Nuys district that I've noticed.
Like many other California fugitives we've profiled here, their initial hideout tends to be Mexico or Central America, Mexico being most likely in this case. However, aside from the fact that this is an alleged murder suspect, these fugitives sometimes return to the US under an alias, thinking no one is looking for them, which is why I'm profiling Miguel Zarajoza today.
