U.S. Marshals Add Suspected Murderer and Kidnapper to 15 Most Wanted

** UPDATE: Wesnel Isaac Was Captured on 05/15/2014. ** Read More

Wesnel Isaac (Captured)Washington – The U.S. Marshals Service added alleged murderer and kidnapper Wesnel Isaac to its 15 Most Wanted fugitive list today.

A documented gang member and alleged enforcer for the Haitian street gang Zoe Pound, Isaac is wanted by the Lee County Sheriff’s Office in Florida for multiple violent offenses including triple homicide, attempted homicide, kidnapping, home invasion and felon in possession of a firearm. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Service Florida/Caribbean Regional Fugitive Task Force and in addition to the local warrants, a federal warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution was issued in the Middle District of Florida.

Isaac has a violent reputation and many members of the community have been unwilling to cooperate with law enforcement in locating the fugitive. He is considered a dangerous fugitive and a threat to the community. A co-defendant, Loubert Jules, in the 2007 triple homicide investigation was sentenced in August 2010 to three life terms by the 20th Judicial Circuit Court in Lee County, Florida.

“The 15 Most Wanted list exists to focus the full investigate resources of the United States Marshals Service on locating and apprehending violent fugitives such as Isaac,” said U.S. Marshals Service Director Stacia A. Hylton. “His alleged crimes represent a clear threat to the community and immediate danger to anyone who might come into contact with him. It is imperative we immediately locate and arrest Isaac.”

Authorities believe Isaac may have fled to Haiti in October 2007 to stay with family members. However, recent information indicates Isaac may have returned to the United States in 2010 after the major earthquake in Haiti.

Isaac has an extensive criminal history dating back to 2003, to include 34 prior arrests for burglary/larceny, narcotics, failure to appear, probation violation, resisting arrest and DUI. Given his criminal background and the offenses he is wanted for, Isaac should be considered armed and dangerous.

A reward of up to $25,000 is offered for information leading directly to Isaac’s arrest. Anyone with information is urged to contact the nearest U.S. Marshals office or the U.S. Marshals Service Communications Center at 1-800-336-0102.
