Between 2003 and 2007, AMW aired the case of Arturo Munguia, who was originally known by AMW viewers as "Jessi Vega" before his real name was revealed. In 1998, Munguia shot and killed his girlfriend in Salt Lake City because he thought she was seeing another man. The crime scene contained leaves that didn't grow in the area and a baseball cap with a name inside it. Munguia would become Walsh's 10th Most Wanted Fugitive of 2003.
14 years later and no Munguia. Munguia was born in Morelos, Mexico but grew up in Chicago. A US Marshal says Munguia also has ties to Seattle, El Paso and Phoenix. Munguia had a very distinctive bullet bandolier tattoo and a Chicago bulls logo tattoo in 1998.
