One Year On, FBI and Philadelphia Police Department Continue to Seek Fugitive Justin Smith; $25,000 Reward for Information Leading to Arrest

The FBI’s Violent Crimes Task Force continues to assist the Philadelphia Police Department with the search for Justin Smith, and we’re asking for the public’s help finding him. Smith is wanted for the murder of his girlfriend Dianna Brice.

Brice, 21, was pregnant at the time. She disappeared one year ago today, on March 30, 2021; her body was found on April 5, 2021. Smith is alleged to have shot Brice in the head multiple times, causing her death and the death of her unborn child.

On April 9, 2021, Smith was charged with murder and related offenses in the 1st Judicial District in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, and a state warrant was issued for his arrest.

Justin Smith is known to have connections to Greensboro, North Carolina, and New Castle, Delaware. He has also been seen in the Little Haiti neighborhood of Miami, Florida, and in Atlanta, Georgia.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to Smith’s location and arrest.

Anyone with information on Smith’s whereabouts is asked to contact the FBI at 215-418-4000 or tips.fbi.gov. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
