Barry James Deemer is wanted for his alleged attempt to solicit an individual to assist in the murder of his ex-girlfriend in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, in late October of 1995.

Deemer was arrested and released after posting bond. On November 8, 1996, a bench warrant was issued for Deemer for failure to appear after he did not appear for pretrial motions. On February 4, 1997, another bench warrant was issued for Deemer for failure to appear after he did not appear for a status conference. Finally, on February 21, 1997, a criminal complaint and federal arrest warrant were issued for Deemer in the Western District of Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for moving and traveling in interstate commerce with the intent to avoid prosecution for the crime of criminal attempt to commit homicide.
