Police are searching for Waco's top ten most wanted criminals, and two of those suspects are known murderers.

35-year-old, Jesus Urquiza, is wanted for murder, along with 32-year-old Jose Escobedo. Kathy Averitt, a member of the community, says she is concerned for her family. Averitt says, "I would die for my children. So I'm gonna do everything I can to protect my kids."

Amilcar Ochoa, also known as, Javier Medina, is wanted for sexual assault. John Hill, and Leon Olvera, are wanted on burglary charges. Harmony Cox and Kenra Schmidt, wanted for drug charges, and Alastair Whitman is accused of theft.

Leonardo Sardaneta, who broke parole and evaded arrest, and Lucas Medina, who also evaded arrest and violated probation, are also on the list.

While these suspects are on the loose, police say to always be aware of your surroundings, because anyone can become a victim of crime. They say do not approach any of these criminals, but call CrimeStoppers or police, if you see them.
