The suspect may have been armed with a high-powered rifle. The suspect is described as a male with a dark complexion who wore camouflage clothes.


The FBI is seeking information regarding an unsolved homicide in Albuquerque, New Mexico. On August 25, 1994, Jeff Oelcher was driving a Wells Fargo Armored Service Corporation van from Socorro, New Mexico, to Grants, New Mexico, on a remote stretch of Highway 6 outside of Albuquerque. He was traveling the routine cash carrier route around 10:30 a.m. when, as he approached mile marker 13, a man lying prone in the bed of a pickup truck on the side of the road opened fire with a high-powered rifle. One of the rounds struck Oelcher in the head. The other courier in the van returned fire, forcing the shooter to flee without getting any money. The truck, which was last seen heading northwest on Highway 6 in the direction of Interstate 40, is described as being dark-colored, with a light-colored camper top.


The FBI is offering a reward of up to $20,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for Oelcher's death.

If you have any information concerning this person, please contact your local FBI office or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate.
