RICHMOND, Va. The U.S. Marshals Service said Tuesday that authorities continue to look in North Carolina for a man listed as a person of interest in the deaths of four people near Richmond earlier this year.
Alexander Rosevelt Hill is being sought by Virginia police in connection with a violation-of-protective-order case in Petersburg, Va.
Federal marshals said Hill also is wanted for questioning in the four deaths, including a small child. The victims died in the early morning hours of April 19, a day before Easter.
Authorities said Hill traveled by taxi to Roanoke Rapids, in northeast North Carolina, just after midnight Easter Sunday. He was seen inside a Waffle House in that area.
Later that morning, authorities said, Hill paid a man to drive him to the Amtrak station in Rocky Mount. The U.S. Marshals Service asked that anyone with information as to Hill’s whereabouts call 877-926-8332. A $5,000 reward is being offered for information in the case.
