Brother sought in Florida Turnpike killings

| Wednesday, October 25, 2006

Florida police are looking for the brother of a man who, along with his family, was shot to death on the Florida Turnpike two weeks ago.

According to local media reports, investigators want to talk to Jose Manuel Escobedo, a wanted fugitive who they think has ties to a Gulf Coast drug cartel.

Escobedo is the younger brother of Jose Luis Escobedo, who was gunned down - along with his wife and two children - near Port St. Lucie.

Police are also looking for a second person, but that individual has not been named.
