One year later, police still searching for person of interest in Petersburg quadruple homicide

PETERSBURG, Va (WRIC) — Authorities are still searching for a person of interest in the deaths of four people, including a small child that occurred in Petersburg on April 19, 2014.

The U.S. Marshals and Petersburg Police Detectives confirmed that Alexander Hill traveled to Roanoke Rapids, NC by taxi early Easter Sunday 2014.  Later that morning, Hill paid a man to drive him to the Amtrak Station in Rocky Mount, NC and that’s when he fell off law enforcement’s radar.

Hill has ties to Virginia, Mississippi, Arizona, and Texas. Tips have been received indicating that he may have fled to Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Florida, Maryland, California and New York City.

He has brown eyes, but also wears hazel contacts which give him a very distinct look. Hill is known to use sex chatlines and a history of meeting older and considerably younger women whom he can control easily. He could be working any under-the-table paying job such as construction or landscaping.

“He could be anywhere in the U.S. at this point in time. We are still actively seeking him and will continue to search unitl he is apprehended. We are pleading with the public to help us in anyway possible,” said U.S. Marshal Robert Mathieson.

Anyone that may have had contact with or seen Hill is asked to contact the U.S. Marshals at 1-877-WANTED-2 (1-877-926-8332). The U.S. Marshals Service is offering a $10,000 in total is being offered for information leading to the arrest of Hill. Tipsters may remain anonymous.
