FBI Adds California Murder Suspect to Top 10 Most Wanted List

Omar Alexander Cardenas

By Steve Neavling

A California gang member suspected of killing a man standing outside a barber shop was added to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list

Omar Alexander Cardenas, of San Fernando Valley, is accused of killing 46-year-old Jabali Dumas with a gunshot wound to the head outside Hair Icon Barber Shop on Foothill Boulevard on Aug. 15, 2019.

According to the FBI, Cardenas likely didn’t know the victim and “fired approximately six shots into public space.”

“He is not only a risk to the public, but he may also have information related  to other violent crimes,” FBI Special Agent Michael Alker said in a statement. 

Cardenas is suspected of being a member of the Pierce Street Gang and goes by the nickname Dollar. 

Cardenas is described as 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-7 and weighs about 240 to 300 pounds. He has dark brown or black hair, a beard, and brown eyes. 

“He normally wears thick prescription glasses and has at least one tattoo,” Alker said.

Anyone who has seen Cardenas is urged to call the FBI at 800-CALL-FBI. 

FBI Finds No Signs of Jimmy Hoffa Under New Jersey Bridge

James R. Hoffa

By Steve Neavling

Once again, a search for the missing Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa uncovered no evidence of his whereabouts. 

In the latest search, the FBI searched land under a New Jersey bridge, the Pulaski Skyway, the bureau said Thursday.

Hoffa, one of America’s most powerful labor leaders, has been missing for 47 years. Hoffa was last seen outside of a Michigan restaurant in 1975 and was legally dead in 1982. There have been dozens of searches for his body since then. 

The latest search was prompted by a deathbed statement by a man who says he buried Hoffa’s body in a steel drum. 

Agents scoured for evidence in October and June. 

“Nothing of evidentiary value was discovered during that search,” Special Agent Mara R. Schneider, a spokeswoman for the FBI’s Detroit Field Office, told Deadline Detroit. “While we do not currently anticipate any additional activity at the site, the F.B.I. will continue to pursue any viable lead in our efforts to locate Mr. Hoffa.”
