HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, FL — Investigators are on the hunt for murder suspect Dennis Saint John Rodriguez, Jr.

Authorities believe that in 2016, Rayman Patram went missing from his house in Hillsborough County, Florida. Although Patram was never found, WFLA reports that investigators believe he is likely dead — and Rodriguez is allegedly responsible.

On December 22, 2017, the FBI issued a warrant for Rodriguez's arrest for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution. He is also facing first-degree murder charges.

Authorities say he may be a member of the Latin Kings gang. It’s possible he could be hiding out in Mexico, the town of Celaya specifically, and could be working as a barber in the area.
