Federal authorities are asking for the public’s help in finding a murder suspect who is believed to have fled North Carolina, where he is facing charges, and may have ties in Florida

Luis Alberto Ordonez-Vega was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of 22-year-old Noel Navarro Hernandez, who was found dead in southwest Charlotte, North Carolina, on June 6. Ordonez-Vega was then charged federally last month with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

“It’s possible that Ordonez-Vega has fled the Charlotte area to avoid arrest,” an FBI spokesman said in a statement.
