    Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution - First Degree Murder

    REWARD: The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading directly to the arrest of Jacob Maldonado.

    Jacob Maldonado is wanted for his alleged involvement in the shooting death of a man in Illinois.

    On May 16, 2000, Maldonado allegedly shot the man in the mouth after an argument regarding a rifle Maldonado believed the victim had stolen. The victim subsequently died of his injuries.

    Maldonado was charged with first degree murder by the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, and a state warrant was issued for his arrest on May 22, 2000. A federal arrest warrant was issued by the United States District Court, Northern District of Illinois, on March 7, 2001, after Maldonado was charged federally with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

    Maldonado may be residing in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

    Maldonado has a scar under his right armpit, and his left ear is pierced.
