Norfolk, VA – A man wanted for a July 2005 stabbing death in
Hampton turned himself in to law enforcement authorities on the evening
of September 11, 2019.
Jihad Ramadan, 32, had been a fugitive
since 2005 and is facing homicide charges by the Hampton Police
U.S. Marshals believe that the constant pressure on
the family to give up Ramadan, as well as numerous news releases, played
a factor in Ramadan turning himself in. He is currently being housed at
the Norfolk City Jail.
“I am proud of the Deputy Marshals and
task force officers from the various District offices that have worked
on this 14 year investigation. It is my sincere hope that the efforts of
the Marshals Service will in some small way assist to bring a sense of
closure to the victim’s family, and will also give the citizens here in
Virginia comfort in knowing that since 1789, the Marshals Service
continues to work daily to serve the public with Justice, Integrity and
Service.” said U.S. Marshal Nick E. Proffitt.
U.S. Marshals Service fugitive apprehension efforts are carried out with
local law enforcement in 94 district offices, 85 local fugitive task
forces, 8 regional task forces, as well as a growing network of offices
in foreign countries.
