FOR 13 years, rapist and murderer FIDEL URBINA has frustrated both the FBI and Mexican police in their attempts to bring him to justice. Now, the FBI is asking ENQUIRER readers to help. And if you have any information about Urbina’s whereabouts, you could be eligible for a $100,000 reward!
“This guy is a very bad individual – very dangerous,” FBI Special Agent Pablo Araya, charged with finding and arresting Urbina, told The ENQUIRER.
“His brutal attacks on women were heinous. Wherever he is, I think he’s still doing harm, not only to the general public, but to women specifically.”
In March 1998, Urbina kidnapped, raped and brutally beat a Chicago waitress. He was freed on $70,000 bond.
But just days before his trial, the madman viciously attacked 22-year-old Gabriella Torres, who had gone to Urbina’s auto body shop to get her brakes fixed. Cops say he beat, raped and strangled her before stashing her body in a car and setting it ablaze.
After the brutal assault, he disappeared.
Despite being featured on “America’s Most Wanted,” Urbina’s whereabouts remain unknown. He was born in Durango, Mexico, and may be there or in the U.S., Special Agent Araya told The ENQUIRER.
Urbina is in his mid-30s, stands about 6 feet tall and weighs about 170 pounds. He is Hispanic with black hair, brown eyes and has scars and pockmarks from acne on his right cheek. He has used various aliases, including Lorenzo Maes, Fernando Ramos and Fidel Urbina Aguirre.
“He is considered to be very dangerous,” added Special Agent Araya. “If you see him, don’t try to be a hero. Contact your local FBI office or the Chicago FBI office and let us know about it.”
