Leobardo Herrera & Carlos Pena are wanted for the homicides of 46-year old Armando Cervantes and 45-year old Carlos Aguirre. Information on this case was provided from Newspapers.com archives and the above photo of the fugitives was found in Newspaperarchive.com's archives.
Authorities allege that Leobardo and Carlos were among a group of individuals who broke into a trailer home and proceeded to rob it. Armando and Carlos were both shot in the back during the robbery. All the other suspects have since been arrested but Leobardo and Carlos are believed to have fled to Mexico.
PACER records show that UFAP (Unlawful Flight To Avoid Prosecution) warrants were issued for Leobardo and Carlos in 1995. They were dismissed without prejudice in 2006 however.
Based on crime location, it is advised to contact the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office at 941-639-2101 if you have any information on the whereabouts of Leobardo Herrera and/or Carlos Pena.

Thoughts? As of today, January 27, 2023, Leobardo and Carlos have active homicide warrants in Florida's statewide warrants database. There was no explanation in PACER as to why the UFAP warrants were dismissed. I assume that they were dismissed due to a lack of leads and the case not being an investigative priority for federal law enforcement.
I was also looking for the photos of Leobardo and Carlos for a long time. Thankfully as part of my year-long access to the Houston Public Library records, I have access to certain state newspaper archives for Newspaperarchive.com.
This is a really horrible case and based on what I read was probably not the only robbery that Leobardo and Carlos were suspected of being involved in. It won't be easy but I hope that they can still be brought to justice.
