Arizona Man Now One of FBI’s Most Wanted for 2024

The FBI has updated its Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list for 2024, and one of the new additions is an Arizona man who is accused of murdering his girlfriend and fleeing the country. Alejandro (Alex) Castillo, now 24 years old, has been on the run since August 2016, when he allegedly shot and killed 23-year-old Sandy Le in Charlotte, North Carolina, and stole her car. He is considered armed and dangerous, and has connections to Phoenix, Arizona, where Le’s car was found days later.


Castillo and Le were co-workers at a restaurant in Charlotte, and had dated briefly before breaking up. According to authorities, Castillo lured Le to a secluded area on August 9, 2016, under the pretext of paying back some money he owed her. He then shot her in the head and left her body in a wooded area. He also took her car, a 2009 Nissan Altima, and drove to Arizona with another co-worker, Ahmia Feaster, who was also his ex-girlfriend. Feaster later turned herself in to the police and cooperated with the investigation, claiming that Castillo had threatened her and forced her to go with him. She also told the police that Castillo had planned to cross the border to Mexico, where he has family ties.


The FBI has been pursuing Castillo for more than seven years, and has offered a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading to his arrest. He has been featured on several true-crime shows, such as The Hunt with John Walsh and In Pursuit with John Walsh. He has also been added to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, which is reserved for the most dangerous and elusive criminals in the country. The FBI believes that Castillo may have changed his appearance, such as growing facial hair or altering his hair style. He may also be using aliases or false identification documents. He speaks both English and Spanish, and has a tattoo of the name “Diana” on his left arm.


Castillo is one of the two Arizona fugitives who have made it to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list in recent years. The other one is Jason Derek Brown, who is wanted for killing an armored-car guard and stealing $56,000 in Phoenix in 2004. Brown was removed from the list in 2023, after 15 years of being on the run, due to lack of leads and publicity. However, the FBI has not given up on finding Castillo, and hopes that the public will help them bring him to justice. Anyone with information about Castillo’s whereabouts is urged to contact the FBI or their local law enforcement agency.
