Gabriel Renee Melendez has been wanted by authorities in California for the past 20 years. As far as I can tell, he was never aired on AMW.
On July 2, 1993, 18-year old Gabriel Melendez and an accomplice planned on committing a gang related shooting in Anaheim, California. Gabriel who was in the passenger seat of a vehicle, shot at another vehicle on a local highway, killing a man and causing him to lose consciousness and crash his vehicle. The victim's two passengers were a woman and an 11-month old baby, both luckily survived. Gabriel's accomplice was arrested days later and convicted for his role in the murder but Gabriel Melendez was believed to have fled to Mexico.
Thoughts? Even though Melendez has family in Southern California, he's probably spent most of his time on the run in Mexico.
