An Alabama fugitive accused of killing a 10-year-old child and the boyfriend of the child’s mother has been added to the U.S. Marshals Service’s most wanted list.

Federal marshals said they are seeking the capture of Ladarrius Rhaheem Fantroy, 28, of Repton, Alabama, on charged of murder, kidnapping and burglary.

Fantroy is accused along with another person of shooting and killing a 10-year-old boy and the boyfriend of the child’s mother in June 2023. Then, authorities say, the suspects stole the victim’s car while his 8-year-old daughter was inside.

Conecuh County Sheriff’s Office investigators said the pair forced the 8-year-old into trunk of another car where she was left for hours before they eventually released her by dropping her off on the highway in the middle of the night..

A month later, in Monroe County, charges were filed against Fantroy after investigators said he and another person broke into a house, tied up a man, woman and a child who were inside and then tortured the man in an attempt to obtain money. The pair allegedly put the man in the trunk of his own car and stole the vehicle, releasing the victim hours later.

A reward of up to $25,000 has been offered for information that leads to his capture.

Authorities said Fantroy should not be approached as he’s considered armed and dangerous. If you have information on his whereabouts, please call the U.S. Marshals Service’s tip line at 1-877-WANTED2.

“Given the nature of Fantroy’s alleged crimes, his danger to the community at large and ability to elude law enforcement, the U.S. Marshals have elevated this fugitive investigation to our 15 Most Wanted Fugitive list,” said USMS Director Ronald L. Davis. “We are seeking the public’s assistance in getting this dangerous individual in custody so that he can face justice. Anyone with information as to Mr. Fantroy’s whereabouts is urged to contact law enforcement immediately.”
