WANTED: 6′ 7″ 300LB Man Accused of Grisly Murder in Upstate NY
Police say he killed a woman in Plattsburgh weeks ago and has been on the run ever since. The last time anyone saw him was over one week ago - heading possibly to Mexico.
A 6' 7", 300-pound behemoth of a man, accused of murder in Upstate New York, has been on the run for weeks ever since police anointed him as the prime suspect in a stabbing murder back on July 14th.
On Friday, the New York State Police said a warrant has been issued for murder charges against Larry M. Hicks Jr. 47, of Tabor City, North Carolina.
What is Hicks accused of?
State Police in New York say that Hicks is responsible for the grisly murder of Monique R. Yanulavich. According to reports, the 45-year-old woman was found dead, stabbed 45 times, and left in her vehicle in a bank parking lot in Plattsburgh on July 14.
The attack, violent in nature, had people in Upstate New York on high alert, but police have stated that Hicks targeted Yanulavich and this was not considered a "random" act of violence.
Police say that after Hicks killed Yanulavich, he fled New York and was seen one day after the alleged murder in South Carolina driving a 2015 Honda Goldwing motorcycle.
On July 21st, Hicks was spotted boarding a bus in Corpus Christi, Texas destined for Brownsville, Texas - and from there it's anyone's guess where he is.
At 6'7" tall, and weighing 300 pounds, it seems unlikely that this mammoth man can continue on the run without being noticed - but police so far have announced very little about the case outside of him appearing on a few surveillance cameras.
