NORFOLK, Va. (CBSMiami/AP) — U.S. Marshals are looking for a woman they believe married a man charged with murder.
Agents on Monday released what appears to be a wedding photo of the woman and suspect Jihad Amir Ramadan. He’s accused of stabbing to death a fellow student at Hampton University in Virginia in 2005 and has been on the run ever since.
The woman’s identity is not known.
The photo is from the Myspace social networking website and was taken around 2007 in New York or New Jersey. The Marshals said she is not suspected of any wrongdoing.
“This photograph appears to show Ramadan getting married approximately two years after multiple warrants were issued for his arrest,” U.S. Marshals said in a release. “Other photographs that have been obtained show at least one of his immediate family members present at the wedding, which is believed to have been held in New York or New Jersey.”
Ramadan was born Justin Faustin and Marshals believe the 30-year-old has taken on a new identity. He has family connections in New York, New Jersey, Maryland, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, California and the Caribbean.
“The investigation determined that Ramadan fled to his native New York shortly after the alleged stabbing. There are indications his family has been instrumental in assisting him to evade arrest over the years. His last known address is on Irving Place in New Rochelle, New York,” read the statement.
A reward of up to $2,500 is being offered for information leading to Ramadan’s arrest.
