Washington, DC – An Alabama man added to the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) 15 Most Wanted fugitives list in March 2024 was taken into custody late June 28 in Mobile, Alabama.

Ladarrius Rhaheem Fantroy, 28, of Repton, Alabama, was wanted by Alabama authorities for murder, kidnapping, and burglary.

Fantroy is a suspect in a double homicide that occurred in June 2023. He and an associate allegedly shot and killed a 10-year-old boy and the boyfriend of the child’s mother. Fantroy and the associate then allegedly stole the victims’ vehicle, with the victims’ 8-year-old daughter inside. The child was ordered into the trunk of another get-away vehicle where she remained for several hours until her eventual release on the side of a highway in the middle of the night.

In June 2023, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) and Conecuh County Sheriff’s Office issued arrest warrants for Fantroy, charging him with two counts of capital murder and one count of kidnapping.

In July 2023, ALEA and Monroe County Sheriff’s Office issued arrest warrants charging Fantroy with kidnapping and burglary after he and an associate allegedly broke into a residence, bound a man, woman, and minor child, then tortured the man while demanding a large sum of money. Fantroy and the associate then allegedly ordered the man into the trunk of his vehicle and stole the vehicle, releasing him several hours later.

On July 25, 2023, the Conecuh and Monroe County Sheriffs' Offices, along with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency State Bureau of Investigation, requested the assistance of the USMS Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force (GCRFTF) in locating and apprehending Fantroy. USMS adopted the fugitive investigation and offered a reward of up to $25,000 for information that leads to Fantroy’s arrest.

USMS investigators believe that Fantroy was receiving assistance from family members and associates, enabling him to elude law enforcement. He is known to have a large network of associates with strong ties in Mobile and Atlanta.

With the assistance of the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, the 1st Judicial Special Response Team, Greenville Police Department, Covington County SWAT, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, the Conecuh County Sheriff’s Office, and the Evergreen Police Department, the Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force conducted an enforcement operation from June 24-28 to identify and contact family members and associates in the Repton area with a view toward developing information to reveal Fantroy’s whereabouts.

On June 28 the team was successful in locating and apprehending Fantroy in Mobile.

“I wish to commend the U.S. Marshals Service Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force and our local, state and federal law partners for the capture of Ladarrius Fantroy, said USMS Director Ronald L. Davis. “My hope is that the arrest of this violent fugitive will bring some sense of justice to his victims, their families, and the entire Concecuh County, Alabama, community."

“This arrest of a suspect for a double homicide, involving the death of a minor child, is proof the U.S. Marshals Service and their law enforcement colleagues will never stop hunting fugitives from justice,” said Mark F. Sloke, U.S. Marshal for the Southern District of Alabama. “We applaud the hard work of all agencies involved in getting this violent suspect off our streets and into custody.”

The GCRFTF began operations in July 2006 and operates throughout Alabama and Mississippi with the participation of three federal agencies and 72 state and local agencies. Since its inception, the GCRFTF has apprehended more than 68,000 fugitives.

Created in 1983, the USMS 15 Most Wanted fugitive program draws attention to some of the country’s most dangerous and high-profile fugitives. These fugitives tend to be career criminals with histories of violence who pose a significant threat to public safety. Generally, 15MW fugitives are considered the “worst of the worst” and can include murderers, sex offenders, major drug kingpins, organized crime figures and individuals wanted for high-profile financial crimes. Since the program began in 1983, more than 250 15MW fugitive cases have been closed.

The USMS has a long history of providing assistance and expertise to other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies in support of their fugitive investigations. Working with authorities at the federal, state, tribal, and local levels, USMS-led fugitive task forces arrested more than 73,000 fugitives and cleared nearly 86,000 warrants in FY 2023.
