The FBI and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police are seeking help finding an 18-year-old who is a suspect in the killing of Tru Quan Lee, whose body was found Aug. 17 in Cabarrus County.
A federal warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution has been issued for suspect Alejandro Rosales Castillo in the case, according to a statement sent out Tuesday.
Initial reports to the police in early August 2016 listed Castillo, Lee and Ahmia Feaster as missing. The three had worked together at a Charlotte restaurant.
However, after 23-year-old Lee’s body was discovered, investigators developed information that Castillo and Feaster fled to Mexico.

Feaster turned herself in to authorities in Aguas Calientes, Mexico, and was extradited to North Carolina. She is facing several charges, including accessory charges related to the killing.
Castillo is believed to be in Mexico or perhaps in El Salvador.
A wanted poster has been added to fbi.gov and sent out on various social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter. Anyone with information on Castillo’s whereabouts is asked to call FBI Charlotte at 704-672-6100 or Charlotte-Mecklenburg Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
