Calgary police have issued a warrant for the arrest of Pablo Rodrigo Russell, wanted for the murder of Serafino Virgilio in January 2010.

Detectives believe that Russell has left Alberta and is probably in British Columbia. Russell has been wanted by police since April of 2010 after police identified him as a suspect.

Police are asking the public’s help in finding Russell, who usually goes by Paul. He is described as Hispanic, 5’11” tall and 176 pounds. He has green eyes, brown hair and a noticeable scar on his nose. He also has a tattoo of a dragon on his upper back.

Police are also looking for any of Virgilio’s possessions which may be held in the basements or garages of his friends or neighbours.

On January 19, 2010, Virgilio’s body was found in a 1999 GMC Denali. An autopsy later revealed that the man had been murdered. Police believe Virgilio was killed two days earlier and his body was later hidden in the car.

Natalie Vinje has already been arrested in connection with the murder.

Russell has previously been charged with one count each of accessing and possessing child pornography.
