The U.S. Marshals announced Friday, November 9, that Kay County Fugitive and former Blackwell Police Officer Luis Octavio Frias is now on their Top-15 most wanted fugitives list. Frias, 34, is wanted for the murder of 29-year-old Janett Reyna on August 9, 2013 in Blackwell. Reyna was Frias’s ex-wife. At the time, Reyna was picking up her three children at their grandmother’s home. Frias then attacked Reyna, and proceeded to stab her 41 times, killing her in front of her children. Reyna had filed a protection order against Frias two days prior to her death. Reyna’s death left an affect on the entire community as she took an oath to serve and protect for the Blackwell Police Department. Soon after the crime, the Kay County Sheriff’s Office charged Frias with first degree murder. Authorities believe that Frias might have fled the country and crossed the border into Mexico. But the Kay County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public to be vigilant as he could be anywhere.
There is a $25,000 reward for anyone who finds Frias. Frias is a 5-foot-11 white male weighing approximately 200 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Frias has a tattoo on his left arm and discoloration on his hands due to a skin condition called vitillgo.
He may be using the alias Louis Beltran in attempt to hide his true identity. Anyone with information can contact the U.S. Marshals office or U.S. Marshals Service Communications Center at 1-800-336-0102.
