MGS's Most Wanted Thread
I'm preparing for law school next year. This means I'm doing anything remotely relating to the subject (taking every criminal justice class at college, watching Law & Order marathons, reading second-rate crime novels). In my new criminal justice class, the professor had a bizarre extra credit assignment: start a website showing wanted fugitives. And if you can prove your website was responsible in capturing a fugitive, you get an automatic A for the semester. Naturally, this was for me (until the Bail Bonds places recognize my online bounty hunter degree as legit, I can't go out and take prisoners), but all my domain name ideas were either taken or copyrighted. The professor did say I could use my this message board, however. I now declare the MGS's Most Wanted Thread Open.
CAPTURES TO DATE: 0
If you see a fugitive from my thread (which are basically cut-and-paste articles from amw.com, in all legality) contact the police, but tell them my thread was the one who caught them and make sure they include it in the report. Then, PM the report somehow, and then I can update my capture number.

FUGITIVE: MELVIN URBINA
Party Turns Into Manhunt For Accused Okla. Child Predator
It was supposed to be a happy occasion.
On July 25, 2009, an anniversary celebration was in full swing at the Imperial Restaurant Banquet Hall in Oklahoma City, Okla. It had become so crowded that the partygoers ran out of chairs.
To be helpful, an 11-year-old girl offered to track down more chairs to accommodate the festivities. That's when the party turned ugly.
Cops say this girl instead found Melvin Urbina, a man who was working as a caterer for the event.
He said he knew where the girl could find more chairs, and even offered to show her. Cops say he lured the girl into an isolated part of the basement, but chairs were the furthest thing from his mind.
Cops say Urbina attacked her, punching her in the face and dragging her into a corner. That's where, they say, he raped the little 11-year-old. After the attack, cops say Urbina hit the road.
Community Outrage Smolders In Hunt For Accused Predator
When word got out about the vicious attack, the community all felt the pain.
That pain soon turned to anger. With the fugitive now in the wind, members of the community became vigilantes, targeting the suspect's home.
Police arrived to the scene to find the suspect's wife dismayed. Her house had been ransacked, the gas stove has been turned on and a cigarette lay on the floor.
Thankfully, the home didn't ignite, but this community still rages, fighting for justice for that little girl.
Melvin Urbina, And Suds In The Slammer
This is not Urbina's first run-in with the law.
On October 10, 1999, while Urbina sat in the Belknap correctional facility in Tarrant County, Texas, he apparently had a beef with one of the corrections officers.
As the jailer walked past him, Urbina threw a soap and water mixture at him, burning his eyes.
While it is not the most serious crime we've ever heard of, it speaks volumes of Urbina's disdain for law enforcement.
This is the type of suspect cops nationwide are hunting for.

FUGITIVE: BERNY FIGUEROA
Normal Day Turns Into Mother's Worst Nightmare
With three young kids, a hard-working husband and a job of her own, Sandra Lopez was doing what mothers all across the country do on a daily basis: juggling a busy life while trying to balance work and family.
For Sandra, March 11, 2008 started early in the morning in Brenham, Texas, just like any other day. She took her 5-year-old son to Pre-K; she dropped off her 4-year-old daughter with long-time family friend Berny Mayel Figueroa; and rushed to enroll her 2-year-old daughter Alexia in a Head Start program.
Before going to work, Sandra took Alexia back to Figueroa, a trusted friend who had been helping Sandra out with the girls for about four months.
When Sandra came back to get her daughters around 5:00 p.m., she noticed that little Alexia was having trouble breathing. Figueroa told her Alexia hadn't been feeling well and was throwing up.
Sandra got worried because Alexia suffered from asthma, so she went home to provide medical care, but she didn't improve.
Sandra rushed Alexia to the hospital.
Sandra took Alexia to the emergency room, where the doctors delivered tragic news: Alexia had died. But even worse, cops say the death was no accident -- and that Alexia had been murdered.
The doctors determined Alexia had been punched so hard in the stomach that her large and small intestines had separated.
Cops assigned to the investigation were able to clear Sandra and her husband Manuel, turning their suspicions to the babysitter, Figueroa, who had spent most of the day with Alexia before she died.
Brenham P.D. detective Lloyd Powell, who has investigated the case from the very beginning, brought Figueroa in for interrogation. After hours of questioning, he and several other detectives concluded that Figueroa was lying to them.
On March 20, 2008 Children's Protective Services intervened. They asked Figueroa to leave her home, where she ran her daycare business.
From "Missing Person" To Fugitive
Cops say Figueroa then moved, with the help of her brother, to a nearby motel.
But she wouldn't stay long.
The following day, as cops were getting ready to charge Berny Figueroa with the killing, Sgt. Otto Hanak, with the Texas Rangers, got a call from Figueroa's brother. Her brother told Sgt. Hanak he wanted to report Figueroa as a missing person since he couldn't find her at the hotel.
Sgt. Hanak went to the motel to look for Figueroa. Figueroa's motel room revealed the very picture of a hasty escape: unmade beds, carryout food boxes, and even Figueroa's clothes and other personal items.
Sgt. Hanak also found a note, written in Spanish, in which she said she was leaving because she couldn't stand the pressure.
What Hanak didn't see was Figueroa's purse or personal documents.
Cops immediately charged Figueroa with Capital Murder, but had no idea where she was.
With the main suspect in their daughter's murder gone, Sandra was left with only questions. Why would Figueroa want to hurt Alexia?
"This was a friend of the family, a person I would do favors for," Sandra told AMW.
But Manuel Lopez, Sandras' husband and Alexia's loving dad, took the news the hardest. Sandra says Manuel became extremely depressed and angry, and had a hard time dealing with his feelings.
Finally, Manuel's anger exploded right in front of Sandra's eyes.
Cops say Manuel was driving erratically and was pulled over by a police officer. Manuel had a verbal altercation with the officer, cops have alleged, then jumped back in his car and fled. The police officer chased after him, and was soon joined by other patrol cars.
As Sandra returned to work after lunch with a friend, she came upon what she called a surreal scene: her husband's truck was being chased by about five police cars.
"The first thing I did was called Detective Powell," Sandra said.
Det. Powell was able to get on the radio and make other officers aware that the man they were chasing a grieving father.
Since Manuel wasn't stopping, officers with the Texas Highway Patrol drew their weapons and shot out Manuel's tires; his truck was disabled, and he was taken into custody.
Det. Powell was able to see him while he was in jail, and Powell says that Manuel was able to get through this difficult episode.
Accused Child Killer On The Run
More than a year since cops say Figueroa beat Alexia to death, they need your help to find her more than ever.
Cops say Figueroa may have cut and dyed her hair blonde to disguise herself. They also believe that someone may be bankrolling her flight from justice, because Figueroa doesn't speak any English, doesn't know how to drive, and has no money.
Figueroa is originally from Honduras, but has lived in the United States legally for several years. She has spent time in Texas and California, but also has contacts in Las Vegas, Nev.
Figueroa may have crossed the border to Mexico on her way to Honduras, but cops believe she still could be in the United States

MISSING PERSON: Clinton Nelson
Oil Field Worker Disappears Without A Trace
On Sept. 1, 2006, 21-year-old Clinton Nelson walked out of his friend's home in Princeton, La. and never returned.
He was staying there over Labor Day weekend, and friends thought he was just stepping out for a cigarette.
Since then cops have heard a number of theories and rumors, but years later no one seems to really know what happened to Clinton.
Det. Charles Owens of the Bossier County Sheriff's Office said he doesn't believe Clinton had any reason to leave, willingly.
He had a $2,000 uncashed check waiting for him at his father's house, about nine miles away, and was very close with his mother, Carolyn Johnson.
She described Clinton as a compassionate person who loved to make other people laugh and cared deeply for his family.
"Family and friends were everything to Clinton," Carolyn said. "Especially his sisters. Clinton was the kind of person that never missed a birthday or holiday. He always called and if he had the money he would send a card or present."
Clinton had recently moved to Louisiana, where his father lived, from South Dakota to take a job in the oil fields.
An injury on the job had forced him to take some time off.
Cops say Clinton had stitches in his collarbone, fractured ribs and a broken arm when he disappeared.
No Clues In Search For Missing La. Man
The home where Clinton was last seen is located in Haughton, La., a sparsely populated, rural area.
Police say the home is near a main road, U.S. Route 80, but behind it are several hundred wooded acres.
The last phone call Clinton made was to his father, claiming someone was after him. After that, cops say the phone went dead.
Clinton was wearing a black t-shirt, jeans, a black knit cap and tennis shoes the last time he was seen.
He also has a fresh scar on his collarbone.
Just after his move to Louisiana, Clinton cut his long hair very short.
Extensive searches of the area where he was last seen haven't turned up any clues.
The most recent search, in August 2009, sent a 22-man underwater search team into a nearby pond, but they found nothing.
"He loved to make his sister, Tarah, his cousins, step-dad and I laugh. I think that's the thing I miss most about him," Carolyn said.
"Clinton was not afraid to say, 'I love you' and he would fight with everything he had to protect his friends and family."
Weight: 160 lbs.
Eyes: Blue, wears round-frame glasses
Clinton was last seen leaving on foot from 848 Ward Lane in Princeton, La. headed about 9 miles home to the 200 block of Homer Rd.
Last Known Location:
Clinton lives in the 200 block of Homer Rd., Haughton, La.

UNSOLVED CRIME: Who attacked Jennifer Schuett?
Texas Girl Jennifer Schuett Kidnapped, Raped And Left For Dead
Jennifer Schuett is no ordinary 27-year-old.
Like so many other young women, Jennifer has been to hell and back in the hands of a sick suspect. Unlike so many others, she lived to tell about it.
It all began on August 9, 1990 in the town of Dickinson, Texas, between Houston and Galveston.
Jennifer was raised by her single mom and her maternal grandparents, and life was good. It was summer, and Jennifer was having fun with friends and getting ready for the third grade to begin.
That night, little Jennifer went to bed with her mother, like she did every night. In the middle of the night, Jennifer couldn't stop itching her bug bites. Her mother asked the 8-year-old to go to her bed, something Jennifer never did.
"I always always slept in my mother's bed, but my mom had to work, and my tossing and turning was keeping her up," Jennifer told AMW.
So Jennifer left her mother's bedroom and went down the hall to her room, where she read books and played with her piggy bank. Finally, the little girl fell asleep in her bed with the light on. Her first-floor bedroom could be seen from the street.
The next thing Jennifer remembers, she was being carried by a man in the dark outside her apartment home.
"He told me he was an undercover cop and my mother was going to meet us where we were going," Jennifer said.
What the stranger told Jennifer couldn't have been further from the truth. Jennifer said the man drove his blue car to a run-down building, which was locked, and then around town. Finally, he stopped at a field overgrown with weeds. She was only three miles from her home, but she says she felt like she was a million miles away.
The little 8-year-old sat in the strange man's car wearing a t-shirt and flowered panties. Jennifer knew something was definitely wrong. Because the area was so isolated, Jennifer knew screaming or attempting to escape wouldn't do her any good.
Then, the unthinkable happened.
Jennifer says she was raped by the man in the car, and her nightmare didn't end there. She said her kidnapper took her to the field, dragging her by her feet.
She remembered going in and out of consciousness, she says, until the man finally left her. "After I heard the car door and the car drive away, I tried to move but couldn't," she said. "I had no idea why."
She couldn't move because, police say, the kidnapper slit her throat after raping her. She was bleeding to death, and laying in a pile of fire ants in the field. She felt paralyzed and helpless by not having the ability to scream, run or even move.
Twelve hours went by, and Jennifer heard people: children, rain, cars. Finally a little boy playing hide and go seek found her.
"The boy was a classmate of mine. He saved my life," Jennifer said.
Help arrived, and Jennifer was airlifted to a hospital where she endured months of medical attention and rehabilitation. Nearly 20 years later, she still has the physical and emotional scars of that horrific summer night.
Jennifer has not come forward to tell her story because she's looking for sympathy: she's looking for justice.
As the years went by, Dickinson Police and other law enforcement agencies tracked down every lead and pursued every theory. The small town had been shocked by the brutality of Jennifer's attack. For the first time, people locked their doors, looked over their shoulders and talked often about the unsolved crime.
The case had gone cold, but the search for Jennifer's attacker was destined to get some fresh attention.
With An Elite FBI Team's Help, A Survivor Fights Back
In March 2006, the FBI created CARDT, the Child Abduction Rapid Deployment Team. It was founded as an elite squad of nearly 60 federal agents, each with experience investigating crimes against children.
When police departments nationwide need help investigating an abduction or a missing child, these teams react quickly and deploy to the location to offer assistance, resources and expertise.
In June 2008, CARDT leaders selected five cold cases to re-investigate and reevaluate. FBI agents met with local detectives assigned to unsolved child abductions, and developed investigative plans for officers to follow. Some of those plans included submitting DNA for analysis at federal labs, re-interviewing witnesses, and following up on old tips.
One of those cold cases is Jennifer Schuett's.
"Our case is very unique," Dickinson Police Detective Tim Cromie said. "It's amazing that Jennifer is alive. I think it's very important to solve this case."
"Jennifer Schuett's case is phenomenal," Dickinson's FBI CARDT counterpart, Special Agent Richard Rennison, said. "When I first heard about Jennifer's abduction, I knew our team had to take this one on."
Jennifer has taken an active role in searching for her own attacker. "I call them often, and offer any help they need," she said. "I don't want to be in the way, but I want them to know I really need this case solved and will do anything I can to help."
Now, after years of staying silent about her kidnapping, rape and near-death experience, she wants to talk about it.
"I'm not a kid anymore," she said. "I'm 27 and want my case out there, not only to solve it, but to maybe help other children, adults and cases."
Jennifer has been in and out of college trying to figure out what she wants to do. She recently decided to take a break from classes and focus on herself and solving her case.
"I just want closure so I can put this behind me and move on," she said.
Jennifer has graduated from the League City Citizens Police Academy, where she took a 15-week course and learned about her local police department.
With that experience, she wants to volunteer and help in her community any way she can.
Jennifer lives with her boyfriend and her two dogs, who she refers to as her kids, and she's always vigilant about locking her doors and windows.
"I do ask myself sometimes, 'Why me, why my apartment?'" she said. "But I don't dwell on it. To me, I am a survivor and I don't want people feeling sorry for me. Because of it, I am a stronger woman and I am not going to let him defeat me," said Jennifer.
After 20 Years, Cops Hope for Fresh Leads
Cops now working Jennifer's case have very little to work with. The crime occurred nearly two decades ago. Jennifer was able to help develop a sketch of the suspect from her hospital bed in 1990.
In 1990, an 8-year-old Jennifer described the suspect as a white male, in his 30's, with dark hair and "yucky" teeth.
Jennifer told police he was sloppy, wore a white t-shirt, had beer cans in his car, and drove an old, dented blue vehicle with a bench seat and two doors.
Police hope fresh eyes on the case helps them come closer to the kidnapper, and they say they're determined not to let him get away with this.
"We've compared this case to other abductions, but no other case seems to have the same MO," Agent Rennison said. "However, I really doubt this is the first time this suspect did this type of crime. It was too horrific."
For Jennifer, her family and the little town of Dickinson, this is a case they all want solved. They want to feel safe again, and they need to know this criminal is off the streets.
Unknown Suspect Info:
Hair: Black or possibly gray
-Suspect had a sloppy appearance.
-He had poor teeth
-Victim said the suspect may have had a scar on his left cheek
