FBI: Fugitive could be hiding among Mormons

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The FBI says a man sought in the fatal shooting of an Arizona armored truck courier could be hiding among Mormons.

Jason Brown is accused of shooting courier Robert Keith Palomares five times in the head at close range with a .45-caliber handgun on Nov. 29, 2004, outside a Phoenix theater. The FBI says Brown made off with $56,000 on a bicycle he ditched that yielded his fingerprints.

FBI agent Lance Leising says the 43-year-old Brown is good at lying and convincing people that he's someone else, and could be taking advantage of a gullible Mormon church member's philanthropy.

Leising told The Salt Lake Tribune that the 1-time Salt Lake City resident's ability to blend in is one reason he's on the Top 10 Most Wanted list.
