Would you believe this cold-blooded killer made a hefty deposit on his great granny’s grave before fleeing the law?
The FBI is asking for Facebook and Twitter users to help find a 22-year-old man who is wanted for stealing $2.3 million out of his employer’s armored car and fatally shooting a Garda Cash Logistics employee.
The face of Kenneth John Konias has been displayed all over the news after he allegedly committed the crime Feb. 28 in Pittsburgh, Penn., during a work shift. The FBI has turned to audiences on Facebook and Twitter to catch him.
Pittsburgh officials said Konias is wanted in connection with a shooting involving Michael Haines, 31, inside an armored truck sitting idle under a bridge. He is suspected of criminal homicide, theft by unlawful taking and robbery, according to the wanted poster released on the FBI’s Facebook page.
Konias and Haines worked together for the money transactions company and were collecting cash from the Rivers Casino and a Home Depot that day, according to an ABC report.
Local reports state Konias left $25,000 at his great-grandmother’s grave and $200,000 at his parents’ house in Dravosburg, Pittsburgh, before disappearing. The money has been recovered by officials.
More than 100 commentators on the Facebook page mention Konias and more than 400 users shared the FBI’s post.
“I went to school with this kid and like someone said earlier he was very impulsive,” said Ryan Flaherty on the post.
Another commenter took to the FBI page to share his sentiments about the victim.
“I remember Michael Haines; a good, decent, well-liked man,” Tony Ruiz said. “I feel terrible for his family. I hope they find peace and justice.”
There is now a federal arrest warrant for Konias. The FBI believes he has several weapons in his possession. The public, along with Facebook and Twitter users, can call 1-800-CALL-FBI to share any information pertaining to the case.
Is sharing wanted posters and case details on social media effective? Will you pay more attention to the FBI social pages as they share more pictures of suspects and fugitives? Tell us in the comments.
This kid is gonna be on an express train to hell when they catch him. Hopefully somebody on Facebook and Twitter has seen this evil S.O.B. and can lead the FBI to him!
