Chicago's Most Wanted: Lavonte Moore

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Lavonte Moore is wanted primarily in connection with a murder that happened in May of 2011 in the Garfield Park neighborhood on the west side of Chicago. Police want to question him in connection with the death of Henry Taylor, who was shot multiple times during a dispute over money. Taylor subsequently died of his wounds. The Chicago Police Department's investigation into the homicide led to Moore being identified as the shooter.

Moore has not been charged in the case, but at the time of the murder he was on parole for a previous perjury conviction. He was charged in early June 2011 with a parole violation for failing to show up at his parole office for a regular appointment required as a condition of his release. A federal charge of Unlawful Flight to Avoid Confinement was filed later that same month.

Initially after the murder FBI agents, Chicago Police, and the Department of Corrections searched for Moore in the Chicago area but could not find him. Investigators at that time said they developed information that indicated Moore fled to Atlanta, Georgia close to where his father owns property in the area. But Moore also has ties to the Decatur, Illinois area as well as to Wisconsin. Agents say they're not limiting their search to any one particular area, though more recently it developed information that indicates Moore may have returned to the Chicago area where he has family, friends and associates.

Here is the FBI's description of Moore:

--Black male

--24 years old

--5'9" tall

--About 175 pounds

--Black hair, brown eyes

--He sometimes goes by the nickname "L.L."

Moore is considered armed and dangerous. If you see him you're asked to call police.
