The Clearwater Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating Gilberto Juarez Hernandez
on warrants charging with the July 19, 2003 murders of his girlfriend Petra Martin, 31, and her 2 year old son, Uriel.
Detectives report that little Uriel was fighting cancer and was in remission from cancer after having just completed a round of chemotherapy.
The reason for the murder is unknown.
Police say Hernandez was identified as being in Iowa in 1999 when he was arrested for fraud and driving with a suspended license.
Police believe Hernandez may be hiding out in Des Moines, Iowa, area because he has a former sister-in-law and two brothers all living there. He may also be hiding out in Mexico or the Tampa, Florida area.
Clearwater Police Detective Christopher Lyons vows “I will look for him if it takes the rest of my career.”
