Roberto Lopez is wanted in connection with the homicide of 72-year old Lester Hunter, according to a Newspapers.com article. Lester was a local artist whom Roberto occasionally lived with and assisted with sculptures. Lester had been beaten to death with a heavy object inside his apartment. It appeared that robbery was the motive because several valuable items were missing.
Authorities were looking for Roberto 10 days after Lester's homicide, and believed that Roberto had fled to Mexico. Los Angeles County court records show that criminal charges against Roberto were filed on April 17, 1996.
Based on crime location, it is advised to contact the Manhattan Beach Police Department at 310-545-4566 if you have any information on Roberto Lopez's whereabouts.

Thoughts? As of today, January 24, 2023, Roberto's case in Los Angeles County's criminal court records database is classified as "case pending". There have also been no recorded case events since it was filed in 1996. This is how I validate that fugitives out of Los Angeles County are still at large. The criminal case was found by searching Roberto's name and DOB and I have included the case number below.
I also did not see an UFAP (Unlawful Flight To Avoid Prosecution) case for Roberto in PACER. The records may not go back that far however. I hope that Lester's family can get the justice that they deserve.
