From the FBI.Gov website:
"Yegizar Karapetyan is wanted for his alleged involvement in the murder of a man on September 2, 2003, in Sacramento, California. Karapetyan, along with three accomplices, who have since been arrested, allegedly surrounded a man, pistol-whipped him, and stabbed him repeatedly with a large knife and Phillips head screwdriver. The victim died at the scene.
A local arrest warrant was issued for Yegizar Karapetyan on September 5, 2003, by the Sacramento Superior and Municipal Court, District Court of California, County of Sacramento, California, after he was charged with murder. A federal arrest warrant was issued for Yegizar Karapetyan on September 30, 2003, by the United States District Court, Eastern District of California, Sacramento, California, after he was charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution."
Thoughts? I found another article on the case and apparently the murder happened as the result of a argument in the case. Yegizar's brother Daniel was also a fugitive in the case. The FBI traced both Daniel and Yegizar Karapetyan to various countries, including Armenia, Russian, France and Belgium. Then, in November 2011, FBI agents were contacted by Belgian authorities who had arrested Daniel Karapetyan on charges unrelated to the 2003 murder. Daniel was extradited to Sacramento less than a week later. Yegizar, however, remains at large. There is hope here in the FBI seeming to be able to track them well enough in the past. It's just we have to hope the country Yegizar winds up is cooperative as he seems to be all over the map possibly hiding in both countries with extradition/relatively easy extradition and without extradition/difficult extradition.
