FBI searches for Dallas fugitive

DALLAS, TX (KLTV) -

From the Federal Bureau of Investigation:

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information directly leading to the arrest of Mark Anthony Ponce, who may be using the alias “Juan Pablo Hernández Villalón.” Ponce is a violent fugitive wanted for capital murder and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Mark Anthony Ponce is being sought in connection to a murder. On September 17, 2014, Ponce allegedly kicked in the front door of his ex-girlfriend’s Dallas, Texas apartment.  He then allegedly shot his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend multiple times, killing him.  Ponce immediately left the scene of the crime.

Ponce was charged with capital murder on September 18, 2014, and the state of Texas issued a warrant for his arrest.  He is believed to have fled to Mexico to avoid arrest and prosecution.  As a result, on November 19, 2014, a federal arrest warrant for Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution was issued by the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas.  

Ponce is described as a 23-year-old Hispanic male, 5 feet 9 inches tall, 220 pounds, with black hair and black eyes.  He has a mole beneath his lower lip.  Ponce may be using the alias “Juan Pablo Hernández Villalón.”  He is believed to be living in either Aguascalientes, Mexico or San Luis Potosi, Mexico.

A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for any information directly leading to the arrest of Ponce.  Individuals with information concerning Ponce should take no action themselves, but are asked to call 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324).  Tips can also be submitted online at https://tips.fbi.gov.  For possible sightings outside the United States, please contact the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate.

    On Monday the Associated Press released its top 25 preseason poll for college football. And for the third straight year, Texas A&M didn't make the cut. Starting fast though and moving their way up the polls in recent seasons hasn't been the problem. In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
