Decade-long search continues for murder suspect

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Albuquerque police and U.S. Marshals need your help finding an accused killer on the run for more than a decade.

Javier Palomo is wanted on first degree murder charges from a shooting back in 2003.

He was featured on America’s Most Wanted back in 2009 as a gang member who was retaliating for the death of a friend’s cousin.

Palomo shot and killed 23-year-old James Griego and paralyzed his sister.

Investigators say he may have fled to his home town of Juarez and joined a drug cartel.
