FBI Seeks Fugitive Wanted for a Murder 11 Years Ago Today, Offers Reward

The FBI and the Pennsylvania State Police are seeking the public’s assistance to locate fugitive Edgardo Welchez-Marroquin. Welchez-Marroquin, 29, is wanted for his alleged involvement in the February 12, 2007, murder of a man in Skippack Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

A local arrest warrant for Welchez-Marroquin on the charge of murder was issued in Montgomery County on September 2, 2009; a federal arrest warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution was issued on January 8, 2010, in U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

Welchez-Marroquin was last known to be in Mexico, but may have traveled to Honduras, which is his native country, or to Guatemala. He speaks English and Spanish and has worked in the restaurant industry.

He is described as a Hispanic male, 5’5” tall and approximately 120 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

Edgardo Welchez-Marroquin should be considered armed and dangerous and an international flight risk.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading directly to his capture. Anyone with information on this wanted fugitive is asked to contact FBI Philadelphia at 215-418-4000, or their nearest FBI office, American embassy or consulate.
