Bigger Reward for Fugitive Wanted for Murder

by Leasa Conze, KOLD News 13 at 5 Producer

A $5,000 reward is being offered for information lto help catch a suspected killer who has been on the run for the past 7 years.

Max Montijo De La Madrid is charged with first degree murder in the death of Tanee Natividad in November 2001. She was gunned down outside a midtown Jack in the Box.

Investigators say he shot at a vehicle she was riding in, thinking she was someone else.

Since then La Madrid reportedly fled to Mexico to avoid prosecution, but because he has family here, La Madrid is believed to return to Tucson from time to time.

Natividad's mother says he has even admitted that he killed her daughter. "He has the nerve to talk about it and say, yes I did it, but I didn't mean it for that little girl.  I didn't even know her,so I'm not gonna pay for something that wasn't meant for her. She was just in the wrong place," says Barbara Nunez.

La Madrid has family in Tucson so authorities think he returns here from time to time and they're hoping this new reward will help convince someone to call 88-CRIME.
