EL PASO, TEXAS This week’s MANHUNT MONDAY Most Wanted Fugitive is an individual wanted for a Sex Crime committed almost 18 years ago to the day. He has been featured every year since the inception of MANHUNT MONDAY (2008) in hopes of leading to his capture. The target is identified as ARTURO BLANCO of El Paso, Texas.AMW_3CDE7454

ARTURO BLANCO is a fugitive from  El Paso County, Texas but is a known Fugitive in the United States, Canada & Mexico. He committed his crime 18 years ago (July 5, 1995) & was been featured on AMERICAS MOST WANTED November 13, 2010. 

JULY 1995: On July 5th, 1995, young Jeremiah McCrimmon (15) was selling newspapers on a street corner in Northeast El Paso, TX when he was approached by BLANCO claiming to own a music business. BLANCO offers Jeremiah a job & after talking to his mother he accepts. BLANCO takes the Jeremiah to his residence & proceeds to molest the young victim eventually dropping him off at a nearby bus stop and instructs young Jeremiah never to tell anyone. BLANCO was arrested for the incident a short time later but was released on bail. He showed for a pre-trial hearing but absconded afterwards never reporting for subsequent hearings. A few years later, BLANCO was apparently indicted in 2000 for sexually assaulting another boy.

BLANCO has remained on the run all these years eluding capture. He is wanted for the offenses of AGGRAVATED SEXUAL ASSAULT OF A CHILD & SEXUAL ASSAULT to include other unrelated DRUG & WEAPONS charges.

After BLANCO’s profile aired on AMERICAS MOST WANTED in November 2010, several sightings of him were reported to via the Hotlines at the AMW Call Center – sightings stretched from California, Minnesota, New York & here in El Paso, TX.

BLANCO has family & acquaintances that remain in the El Paso, TX area & someone may have that little piece of information that can lead to his capture.
