NC offers $5,000 reward for Marine accused of killing colleague

READ MORE:
RALEIGH (AP) -- State and federal officials are now offering $30,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of a Marine accused of murdering his pregnant colleague. Gov. Mike Easley said Monday the state is now offering a $5,000 reward for critical information in the case against Cpl. Cesar Laurean. The FBI is offering $25,000. Laurean is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 20-year-old Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach. Her body and unborn baby were found charred and buried in Laurean's backyard in January. Investigators believe Laurean fled to his native Mexico in January. He left a note claiming Lauterbach had slit her throat, but an autopsy found the woman died of blunt force trauma. A spokesman for the II Marine Expeditionary Force said Monday that Laurean is considered a military deserter. (Copyright 2008 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)

Seriously?

$5000 is all NC can come up with? Seems to me that NC should be offering the lion's share of any reward.

Marine illegal immigrant on the run

THIS IS THE MOST BLATANT OF CRIMES COMMITTED ON A HUMAN BEING AND AN UNBORN SON. WHATTTT AN ANIMAL WOULD DO THAT?? IF WE CAN BE FOUND WHEN WE ORDER PIZZA, THAT MAN SHOULD HAVE BEEN APPREHENDED AND HIS WIFE FOR WHATEVER PART SHE HAD IN THIS. ANY TIME ANOTHER WOMAN GETS INVOLVED WITH A MARRIED MAN SHE MAY DESERVE PUNISHMENT, BUT NOT OF THIS NATURE. HOWEVER, THAT IS WHY ADULTERY IS NEXT TO MURDER IN THE HIGH CRIMES RATINGS, AND VERY OFTEN LEADS TO THAT END.
