Synopsis: Alfonso Cruz Gardido, also known as Fermin Soriano Sanchez and Alfonso Cruz Fernandez, is wanted for murder. There is a felony murder warrant on file for Gardido with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Office.
Gardido is a Hispanic male, approximately 5’10” tall and 165 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes. He has a light complexion with medium length, dark curly hair and a mustache. Gardido is a Mexican national and may be in Mexico or the United States. Gardido should be considered dangerous and may still be in possession of a handgun.
The murder for which Gardido is charged occurred on October 18, 1993 on 3800 Chamoune Avenue. The victim Lucky George Akpughe and the suspect Gardido became involved in an argument pertaining to assigned parking at the apartment complex they both inhabited. While involved in the argument, Gardido suddenly produced a handgun and fired one shot that struck Akpughe in the top of the left shoulder. Akpughe was able to make it back to the doorway of his apartment where he collapsed. Gardido fled the scene and was never apprehended.
At the time of the murder, Gardido had a girlfriend named Maria Peinado-Hernandez (3-3-47), and the girlfriend had a daughter named Mayra R. Hernandez (11-27-76). These persons were not involved in the murder but detectives are interested in interviewing them.
Based on wanted location, our advice for anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Alfonso Gardido would be to contact the San Diego Police Department at (619) 531-2000.

Thoughts? Once again, we have a victim, in this case Lucky Akpughe that had to die as a result of a very unnecessary argument. Alfonso should have just found another parking spot at the apartment complex, even if it resulted in him taking a few more seconds to walk to the apartment. One thing the San Diego Police website doesn't reference is Alfonso's age, although they did an excellent job detailing everything else. His girlfriend, Maria Peinado-Hernandez would be 69-years old today so his age is probably similar.
