Authorities are on high alert as they search for an illegal alien fugitive wanted in connection with a 2002 murder in Kaufman County, Texas. 33 year-old Israel Aguirre is accused in the murder of 33-year-old Armando Saucedo near Lake Ray Hubbard on June 23, 2002.

According to The Texas Department of Public Safety, Aguirre was charged in both the slaying and on theft charges in 2002. He served time in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice facility and was deported back to Mexico before he could be tried on the murder charge.

Aguirre turned up in the Dallas area in 2005.  This time he was arrested for prostitution and failure to ID.  He pled ‘No Contest’ and was released on bond in connection to his 2002 murder charge.  He made a ‘series of court appearances between 2005 and 2007’, but vanished soon after.

Aguirre is described as a white male, 5’8” tall, 130 lbs, with black hair and brown eyes. Aguirre has tattoos on his chest and left arm. He is known to use aliases as well: Israel Aguirre Jaimez; Israel Aguirre-Jaimez; Israel Jaimez Carmona. Aguirre should be considered armed and dangerous. He has ties to both Mexico and the Dallas area.

In September 2007 the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office issued a murder warrant for his capture. There is currently a $10,000 reward for info leading to his arrest and conviction.
