$8,500 reward offered for arrest of Fort Stockton man

Fort Stockton Crime Stoppers and Texas Crime Stoppers are offering a combined $8,500 reward for information leading to the arrest of Alfonso Quiroz, 33, of Fort Stockton.

Quiroz is wanted for murder in connection with a May 17, 2007, murder south of Fort Stockton, where a man was found shot to death on the side of a road. Quiroz was arrested two days later and charged with murder and unlawful possession of a firearm. He was released after posting bonds totaling $600,000 and failed to appear on his scheduled court date. He has been on the run ever since.

Quiroz has a scar on his forehead and several tattoos, including one on his inside left forearm that says “LIFE/DEATH” and a scroll on his outside upper left arm that says “ONLY GOD WILL JUDGE ME.”

For more information on Quiroz, see his DPS Most Wanted poster:  http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/wanted/topTenFugitives.htm#;view=Details/fugitive=8
