I don't want to sound like I'd be giving up but I approved Jean as PE #1 since the forum members voted for him, but due to one questions and his cold case status I do feel we should revisit this case and possibly choose a new PE #1 if he still isn't caught in a few years (I'd still keep him on the site dirty dozen, and would only be "giving up" on the PE #1 part).
But yeah the Earthquake makes me wonder. Heck he could died from Covid in Florida for all we know.

I still feel a slight chance Esnel Jean could be in a Haitian community in Florida or there are many communities with a decent sized amount of Haitians in NYC (specifically could be in Brooklyn in near Flatbush area). But Haiti obviously most likely at this point.
Honestly in retrospect he should have been added to the top ten list the late 90s or early aughts. He could fill one of the two open slots since there's room for a cold case as both Yaser Said and Santiago Mederos were on the run for a decade, I'd be on board with that, but the prime opportunity to add him has now passed by.
I don't think I'm revealing anything I shouldn't since I passed along the tip like several years ago but I once got an anonymous e-mail (one of my few regrets that our contact form is no longer anonymous) that I passed along that said he was working as a bus driver in Haiti. I mean that's not really specific enough to be that great a tip hence why I feel ok to reveal it publicly but I passed it along anyway. Just it does show that people may send in leads should In Pursuit want to air him in Season 3, I know from my conacts there they prefer to profile more recent cases, but he can fit into that one or two exceptions category (they did air Lester Eubanks for example).
