Eastern District of Virginia Ė Norfolk Division (757) 963-5998
UPDATE: Jihad Ramadan Case
Man in wedding photo determined not to be wanted fugitive
Jihad Amir RamadanNorfolk, VA - Thanks to media coverage and tips from the public, U.S. marshals have determined that the man previously displayed in a wedding photograph is not Jihad Ramadan. The fugitive remains at large as the investigation continues.

Investigators followed leads after the release of the wedding photo and determined that the man pictured as the groom was, in fact, not Ramadan. Law enforcement officials received the original information from credible sources, however U.S. marshals have verified the true identity of the man and the bride. U.S. marshals request that media outlets and other entities not promulgate the image in furtherance of the active investigation to locate and arrest Ramadan.

The media attention of this case the past week helped generate several tips on Ramadanís possible location. The U.S. marshals remain committed to tracking down homicide fugitive Jihad Ramadan and still need the publicís help to come forward with information.

A reward of up to $2,500 is being offered for information leading to Ramadanís arrest.
