More than 10 years ago, a man accused of shaking a baby, causing injuries that killed her, left Franklin before police could put him in handcuffs.
Officers spoke to family members to find out where he had gone. They checked with his friends. Police investigated tips that came in after he was featured on an episode of “America’s Most Wanted.” But Raul Ortiz Gonzalez has never been located, and police believe he might have fled to Mexico.
The prosecutor filed a single charge of battery causing death, and an arrest warrant was issued in March 2003. Gonzalez is one of more than 3,500 people police have warrants for who have not been arrested.
