Charlotte man added to FBI's "Ten Most Wanted Fugitive" list

Surveillance footage released by the FBI shows images of Alejandro Castillo crossing the border into Mexico

Anyone with information on Castillo's whereabouts should call FBI Charlotte at 704-672-6100 or Charlotte-Mecklenburg Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.

A $100,000 reward is being offered for tips leading to the arrest of Castillo who is suspected of killing 23-year-old Truc Guan Ly Le, also known as Sandy.

Le's body was found in Cabarrus County on August 17, 2016.

Le and Castillo were reported missing in August 2016 along with another coworker, 20-year-old Ahmia Feaster.

The three has worked together at a restaraunt in Charlotte. Investigators believe Castillo and Le dated briefly earlier in 2016 but weren't in a relationship when they disappeared, Greene said.

Alejandro Castillo is wanted for murder. The victim's vehicle was located after the murder by the FBI's Phoenix Division at a bus station in Arizona.

Billboards featuring Castillo will be on display in various locations, including North Carolina, Texas, and Mexico, officials said. But two months after the homicide, Feaster turned herself in to Mexican authorities and is now back in North Carolina facing charges. Ulloa is charged with accessory after the fact of murder.

A joint investigation by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) and the FBI revealed that Castillo had borrowed money from Le. Investigators believe the pair drove to Arizona and then crossed the border in Nogales into Mexico.

He may now reside in San Francisco de los Romo or Pabellón de Arteaga in the Mexican state of Aguascalientes. He is said to weigh 180 to 190 pounds and speaks English and Spanish. On February 10, 2017, a federal arrest warrant was issued in the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina, Charlotte, North Carolina, charging Castillo with Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution.

"We are thankful for the FBI's commitment to provide such extraordinary resources to this case", said District Attorney Andrew Murray. Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say Le was Castillo's former girlfriend.

"No matter where he is, we will bring him to justice", said Special Agent Strong.
