Family and friends say Rebecca Moses' relationship and marriage to Emilio Ramirez Garcia was riddled with domestic violence. At one point, loved ones said Rebecca even called the police on her then husband, who was arrested, but the charges were later dropped.

Rebecca had the courage to leave the man she thought would be a good father to her then young son, but she didn’t know what he was fully capable of. Late one night, on May 17, 1997, Garcia showed up to the home in Snow Hill, North Carolina, where Rebecca was staying with friend Myra Lowman.

Lowman said Garcia, who she knew and was friends with before she met Rebecca, kicked her door that night and demanded to speak to Rebecca. He went inside and Rebecca spoke to Garcia for a while in the back room, but the conversation turned sour.

Lowman said, "She (Rebecca) came running out of the bathroom... Myra, he's got a gun. He's got a gun. I will be right back. I'm going to calm him down." Within moments, according to Lowman, she heard gunshots.

Lowman said through her tears, she shouted at Garcia, "Why did you do this?" Lowman said Garcia then pointed his rage, and gun directly at her – to her head – and he "pulled the trigger." Thankfully, there weren’t any bullets left.

The last words Lowman heard from Rebecca were, "I'm so cold Myra. Please take care of Korbie for me." Rebecca's son, Korbie, was only two years old at the time.

Lowman couldn’t call for help because she didn’t have a phone, but she ran to her car and she said she drove directly to the local police station.

According to authorities, as Rebecca took her last breaths, Garcia skipped town. Investigators learned Garcia went to Georgia and then went directly to Mexico. He's been gone ever since.

Garcia is charged with first-degree murder.

Sheriff Matt Stausser sat down with Host Callahan Walsh and said this about Rebecca's family, "I hope they can find closure. It's not going to make up for the loss, 25 years is a long time to grieve someone, but we are hoping it can take and bring closure back to the family."

Beverly Wilkerson, Rebecca's sister, also told Walsh, "Best case scenario is to get it nationwide where somebody will recognize him and will do the right thing and let's get him caught. It's been 25 years... my family needs a little bit of peace and justice for Rebecca Moses."

Emigdio "Emilio" Ramirez Garcia could be in Mexico. He stands 6 feet tall and has a tattoo on his left forearm with the word "Amore" on it. Some of the aliases he could be using are: “Juan Garcia, Emigdio Garcia, Jose Garcia Ramirez, Javier Gonzales Gonzales, Arturo Barboza

Alvarez Arturo, Arturo Barbosa, Gonzales Javier Gonzales, Arturo Alvarez”
