California Alert -- Fabian Urrea

From Major K:
Specialist Jorge Estrada was murdered while home on leave for the birth of his daughter. The loss of this fine Soldier is not just a loss to his family, the NightStalkers and the Army, but a loss to the American People. To say he was a good man is putting it too lightly. I had the good fortune to work closely with Specialist Estrada for several months when I was also the Communications Officer for the Battalion. He impressed me right from the beginning.
He posted a recent development in this heinous case today - the photograph and name of the murderer. I won't even say alleged murderer, as it seems to be fairly irrefutable on all counts. This skel's name is Fabian Urrea.

Law enforcement officers are still looking for Urrea, who they say fled the shooting scene in a white 1997 Nissan extra cab pickup with a California license plate of 7J26810.

He is described as Latino, 5 feet 8 inches tall, 145 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. His head was shaved, police said.

Please, do me a favor - distribute this photograph and name everywhere you can in Southern California. I can only hope someone reads this and sees him at the Shell station on Broadway or something.

Read more about the case here. There is word of a $550,000 reward for serving the warrant, and I for one would like to see that money go to Spc. Estrada's family.

They found his truck dumped in Murrieta, and have arrested his sister of suspicion of aiding a felon.
