Facebook And Twitter Users Asked To Help FBI

By: Lee Hester - March 9, 2012

Kenneth John Konias Jr. is wanted by the FBI and they are using social media to track him down. Korias is a 22-year old Pennsylvania man who is wanted for the murder of an armored car employee, 31-year old Michael Haines and the robbery of $2.3 million that was aboard the vehicle. The crime took place in Pittsburgh on February 28th during a typical shift for the Garda Cash Logistics company. Haines was shot, killed and his body was left inside the armored car.

Korias is suspected of criminal homocide, robbery and theft by unlawful taking. FBI agents have released a wanted poster on the FBI Facebook page and have asked for the assistance of audiences on Twitter and Facebook to help apprehend the suspected murderer. Cash from the robbery was found at St. Mary Magdalene Cemetery in Munhall, a suburb of Pittsburgh. $25,000 in cash was recovered at the gravesite of Korias’ Great Grandmother, Anna Hrichak. Another $200,000 in cash was recovered from the home of his parents in Dravosburg, Pennsylvania. His parents are cooperating with officials.

This guy needs to pay the price for his crimes…heartless! “FBI – KENNETH JOHN KONIAS, JR.” http://t.co/GF0IpWMj 2 days ago via twicca ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

“I think this is someone who committed a very amateurish and stupid act, and it’s carrying on in the same tradition,” said Lawrence Likar, a former FBI agent to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. He added that all of Konias’s actions show a lack of planning. The FBI believes Konias may have several weapons and has issued a Federal arrest warrant for him. It will interesting to see if social media can help them get their man.
