The public is being asked for help in locating Raymond “RJ” McLeod, a former U.S. Marine who is wanted for murder. It is believed that he may be using the aliases of Matt or Mateo, and is believed to be on the run in Central America or Mexico. “His last reported location was in Guatemala in March 2017, but he has also been spotted in Belize and in Mexico,” said Steve Jurman, U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force Commander.

On June 10, 2016, San Diego police officers responded to a 911 call of a woman not breathing in an apartment in the block of Mission Gorge Road in San Diego. The woman, later identified as 30-year old Krystal Mitchell from Phoenix, Arizona, was pronounced dead at the scene by medics. Detectives from the San Diego Police Department’s Homicide Unit responded to the scene where there were signs of a struggle. They determined Mitchell was last seen alive with her boyfriend McLeod. Mitchell and McLeod, also from Phoenix, had been in San Diego visiting friends.

The San Diego District Attorney’s Office charged McLeod with murder and a warrant was issued for his arrest but it is believed that McLeod fled through Mexico to Central America after Mitchell’s death.

It is believed that he has grown a beard as a disguise. He has several distinguishing tattoos that may help identify him. The fugitive and former U.S. Marine is a 5’ 11” white male with brown hair and hazel eyes. At the time he fled, McLeod weighed 245 pounds and had a tattooed muscular physique.
