AMILKAR A. CARO wanted by the FBI
AMILKAR A. CARO, age 32, whose last known address was
1354 Dakota in the northwest suburb, is wanted by Kane County authorities for the shooting death of Hugo Armand Navarro. CARO allegedly shot Navarro to death following an argument outside a residence in the 700 block of Adams Street in Elgin, during the evening hours of February 4, 2010.
The EPD investigated the shooting and developed information leading to the filing of First Degree Murder charges against CARO. However, attempts to locate and apprehend him were unsuccessful as he is believed to have fled the state immediately after the murder. CARO was later charged in U.S. District Court in Chicago with one count of Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution, which is a felony offense. As such, CARO is now the subject of an international manhunt, being coordinated by the Chicago FBI.
AMILKARA A. CARO, who is also known as Salvador Avila and Javier Pena, is described as a Hispanic/male, 32 years of age, 5’7” tall, 180 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He has a tattoo of the word “JALISCO” across his back. Anyone recognizing CARO or having any information about his current whereabouts is asked to call the Chicago FBI at (312) 421-6700 or the Elgin Police Department at (847) 289-2740.
The public is reminded that a complaint is not evidence of guilt and that all defendants in a criminal case are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
