Fidel Urbina Added to Top Ten Fugitives List

Fidel Urbina, the subject of a nationwide manhunt since 1999 in connection with two sexual assaults and murder, has been named to the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.

The former Chicago resident is wanted for allegedly beating and raping a woman in March 1998, and seven months later—while free on bond—for beating, raping, and strangling a second Chicago woman to death. That woman’s body was found in the trunk of a burned-out car.

We are offering a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading directly to Urbina’s arrest. Given the nature of the charges against him, Urbina should be considered armed and dangerous.

Urbina is the 497th person to be placed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list. Since its creation in 1950, 466 fugitives on the list have been apprehended or located—154 of them as a result of citizen cooperation.
