Fugitive Marine 'was in Mexico'
A further development in the death of Lance Cpl Maria Lauterbach: the man charged with her murder has apparently been seen in Mexico.
A cousin of suspected killer Marine Cpl. Cesar Laurean told CNN Tuesday that he saw the wanted man near Guadalajara a week ago.
Juan Antonio Ramos Ramirez said he did not know at the time the
Marine visited him at his liquor store in Zapopan that Laurean was
being sought by authorities for murder.
"He stopped by ... just a few days ago, last week," he said.
Asked what his cousin had told him, Ramos said, "Just 'Hi, I'm just
passing by.' He told me he was here with some buddies for a few days
and, you know, it's not the first time he's come by to visit, say hi to
Also Tuesday, the FBI released photographs it
said were taken within the past eight months showing the fugitive.
Laurean has a tattoo of a phoenix rising from ashes on his left upper
arm and a tattoo "possibly of a human skull layered over another image
on his right upper arm," the agency said.
