Warren Stern is wanted for his alleged involvement in the murder of a man in Los Angeles, California, on April 21, 1996. Stern is alleged to have arrived uninvited to a party and attempted to pick fights with partygoers. Stern was thrown out of the party, but allegedly returned later and confronted the victim. The two exchanged words, Stern left, and the victim followed. The victim was found lying in an alley with a stab wound to one of his lungs. He died before reaching the hospital.


On September 5, 1996, Stern was charged with murder and an arrest warrant was issued by the Los Angeles County Court. A federal arrest warrant was issued on September 30, 1996, by the United States District Court, Central District of California, after Stern was charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
