Mid-South's Most Wanted

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Last August 7th, someone stole from Avis Taylor, a joy no one can replace.

Avis Wilson described her son as a likable person.  He was the father of four girls, the youngest just two years old.  "He loved to cook.  A lot of people knew him from his cooking."  "My son was robbed and in the midst of the robbery he was shot and he died right away.  Taken away from me."  Jenario Taylor had just celebrated his 47th birthday in June.

Two men broke into the apartment of her son, Jenario Taylor, in the 4900 block of Clinchstone.  Once inside the home, the gunmen men demanded money.  At some point Jernario Taylor, the homeowner, was shot.

He was taken to The MED where died.

"I started praying Lord please don't let my baby suffer."

Police caught one accused killer but are looking the second gunman.  Investigators say his name is Brandon Taliaferro.  The US Marshals believe Taliaferro knows they want to put him in cuffs.  "1st degree murder speaks for itself but, when you combine that with a home invasion style incident ... sets off everybody's radar," Deputy US Marshal Seth Bruce said.

Marshals are also looking to catch Martin Burciaga.  He is a wanted child sex offender.

On August 16, 2009, Memphis Police were called to the 1800 block of Watson.  A teenage girl said she was sexually assaulted by Burciaga.   

Law men believe he might still live in Memphis, having escaped capture for more than 3 years.

Deputy US Marshal Seth Bruce said, "I can't sit here and tell you why this individual has not been apprehend yet, except to say our traditional means of turning to the public for help."

The US Marshal's office is looking for your help in catching three other fugitives.

Austin Carter.  The 47 year old is wanted for aggravated assault, attempted 1st degree murder, and using a firearm to commit felony.
