Warren Price had been on the run for almost nine years since the 1997 murders of a man and pregnant woman in Kansas City who were innocents in a bungled drug sale. Price was profiled last year on America’s Most Wanted. New information helped the Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force track him to an address on Glasgow Avenue in downtown Los Angeles. Pick up the press release:
As the Task Force members approached the apartment, a man, later identified as Price, jumped out of the second story balcony, and unsuccessfully attempted to flee down a rear alley way. A .45 caliber handgun was also recovered from the apartment.
Price is currently being held at the Los Angeles County Jail awaiting further judicial process.
“This is a perfect example of perseverance and team work” said John Clark, Commander of the Pacific Southwest Task Force. “From Kansas City to New York and finally Los Angeles, investigators were able to catch a violent killer due to the relentless and combined efforts of numerous agents from various local and federal law enforcement agencies.”
Price is the sixth bad guy profiled on "America's Most Wanted" to be nabbed this year by the L.A. task force.
