LA's Most Wanted: 1994 Murder Of College Student Eric Velasquez

(FOX 11) Every year for the past 21 years, Eric Velasquez's mother has visited the Santa Paula Police Department, hoping that his killer has been identified and arrested. The 21-year-old college student and newspaper subscription salesman was murdered on March 7, 1994 in a carport adjacent to a group of apartments on North Ojai Road.

Santa Paula is located inland from Ventura along Highway 126 where it is known as The Citrus Capital of The World because of its many lemon and orange groves.

Over the decades, investigators have had persons of interest, but they have never had enough information to charge specific individuals with murder.

In addition to the shooter, another man was waiting in an SUV near the murder scene to help the shooter get away. Santa Paula Police are confident that both men have talked about what they did with members of their families and their friends.

Anyone with any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, is urged to call Santa Paula police at (805) 525-4474.
