Real Name: Antonio Chavez Moses
Aliases: Monte Deuce, Li'l Monte
Wanted For: Attepmted Murder, Assault
Missing Since: February 22, 1996
Details: Nineteen year old Antonio Moses and eighteen year old Frazier Joseph Francis are two gang members who have long histories of arrests. Moses had been convincted of manslaughter in 1995, but was surprisingly sentenced only to probation. On February 22, 1996, the two were walking in the area around Figueroa Elementary School in South Central Los Angeles. Just after 9:00am, Francis allegedly opened fire on a rival gang member who was driving by the school. At that same moment, 30 year old 5th grade teacher Alfredo Perez was teaching a class in the school's library. A stray bullet pierced a window and struck Alfredo in the forehead, and although the wound would normally be fatal, he was able to make what doctors call a "miraculous recovery". Francis surrendered the next day and was charged in connection with the shooting, but Moses disappeared and is still at large. Both men have been charged with attempted murder and assault. Francis was being held on $615,000 and pled innocent to the charges while Moses remained on the run.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the March 29, 1996 episode of Unsolved Mysteries.
Results: Captured. On April 5, 1996, Antonio Moses surrendered to authorities. He and Francis went on trial for attempted murder, but a mistrial was declared two times. Finally, in January of 1997, prosecutors announced that they would not seek a third trial and that the charges against the two men were dropped.
In 2012, Moses was arrested and convicted of battery and pandering in Nevada. He was later paroled, but in 2016, he was again arrested; this time, he was charged with human trafficking and attempted pimping.
