Freddie Alaniz, 36, wanted for murder and sexual assault of a child

Freddie Alaniz is this month's featured Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive and is wanted for murder, sexual assault of a child, and possession of marijuana. The reward for 36-year-old Alaniz increased to $12,500 for the month of January.

Alaniz was arrested in 2006 for allegedly stabbing a man during a fight in San Antonio. He made bail, fled, and has been a fugitive since. The victim later died, and an arrest warrant for a murder charge was issued.

Alaniz also has a warrant for sexual assault of a child from Zavala County in February 2006. Alaniz's criminal history includes charges for assault causing bodily injury, resisting arrest, and driving while intoxicated.

Alaniz is described as between 5'3" and 5"6, between 120 to 150 pounds, with a tattoo of dot on his left hand, and a scar on his right eyebrow. Alaniz had a broken nose in the past and wore prescription glasses. A Texas Ranger forensic artist provided an age progression photo of Alaniz, and authorities believe Alaniz may look significantly different now.
