Chicago's Most Wanted Ernesto Montoya Hernandez

Posted:

A 25 year old north side man is on the run from the law after an argument turned deadly.

Cook County prosecutors have charged Ernesto Montoya-Hernandez with fatally shooting his former roommate, 35 year old Juan Mendez, nearly a year ago.

Investigators say the shooting happened during a party in a motel room in the 6000 block of north Lincoln Avenue on April 23, 2010. Witnesses tell police the two men began arguing after Mendez told Montoya-Hernandez he was planning on moving out of their north side apartment.

Agents say Montoya-Hernandez disappeared before paramedics or police arrived at the motel. Since then, they have been conducting a nationwide manhunt to find him. They also say Montoya-Hernandez may be hiding out in his home town of Rosamorada, Nayarit, Mexico.

Here's a physical description of Montoya-Hernandez. He's described as an Hispanic male, 5'9", and weighs 170 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes, a tattoo on his left shoulder and goes by the name "Camacho."

Montoya-Hernandez is considered armed and dangerous.

If you have any information on the case, call the Chicago FBI at (312) 421-6700.
