The Federal Bureau of Investigation has added a name to its “Most Wanted” list in an effort to catch a suspect in the grisly murder of a Pennsylvania girl seven years ago.
DNA evidence reportedly links Alexis Flores to the murder of 5-year-old Iriana DeJesus, who was found raped and strangled in a Philadelphia apartment in 2000. The FBI said Flores, who also goes by the names Mario Flores, Mario Roberto, and Alex Contreras, is a Honduran man, about 31 years old, weighing between 130 and 140 pounds.
After serving time in Arizona on a forgery charge, Flores was deported to Honduras in 2005. Philadelphia authorities issued an arrest warrant for him in March, charging him with DeJesus’ murder and other felonies relating to her death, according to the FBI. There is a $100,000 reward for any information leading to his capture.
On the “Most Wanted” list, Flores replaces Shauntay Henderson, an alleged Kansas City gang member who was caught on March 31, the same day she was placed on the list, according to the FBI.
