Authorities having been searching for Jason Derek Brown, 43, who has been on the run since late 2004 when he shot an armored car guard and fled with stolen money in Phoenix, Arizona, right outside of a Phoenix movie theater.

Immediately after being named the suspect in the homicide, Brown fled Phoenix and went to Henderson, Nevada and later travelled to Las Vegas. While there, he had swapped his BMW for a black Escalade. In January, 2005, authorities found Brown’s Cadillac Escalade abandoned in the parking lot of Portland International Airport in Oregon.

The one-time Salt Lake City resident and Laguna Beach native who attended Laguna Beach High School, could now be taking advantage of Mormon church members to stay hidden from public view, the FBI’s lead agent on the case said.

Although Brown is described as a ‘show off’ who likes to party, authorities believe he could be hiding among the Mormon and say he is a ‘skilled liar’ who has a ‘surfer dude’  appearance and a common name which could help him easily blend in among a crowd. He also speaks fluent French and is a former Mormon who once served LDS mission in France.

On December 8, 2007, three years after his first degree murder charge, Brown was listed on FBI’s Most Wanted List as the 489th Most Wanted fugitive and FBI has been looking for him ever since. It’s now 2013 and the Federal Bureau of Investigation has now upgraded him to FBI’s Top 10 Most Wanted Fugitives.

In 2005, less than one year after the murder, authorities received over 200 leads with the majority of leads being outside of Arizona, even some possible sightings in Canada. Most of the sightings haven’t been confirmed however, if it is then he could be on the move in any state.

The most recent confirmed sighting was in August 2008, when an acquaintance of Brown recognized him while they were stopped at a traffic light near Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City. Their mutual recognition prompted Brown to drive through the stoplight. Aware that Brown was a fugitive, the witness informed police of the sighting. According to him, Brown had longer hair and a deeper tan than in the 2004 photograph of his wanted poster. Brown is considered armed and extremely dangerous and those with a possible sighting should contact police immediately and avoid confronting Brown themself.
