Man Wanted for Questioning in Death of Lubbock Toddler

Lubbock Police are asking for your help in locating 41-year-old Anthony Fred Evans. Investigators believe Evans provided an east Lubbock family with commercial grade insecticide, which sent 5 people to the hospital last week. However, two-year-old, Vantashia Samuels later passed away at UMC.

Evans who goes by "Twenty or Deuce" is 5'4 and weighs about 148 lbs. He is known to frequent the 1500 block of East 16th and 17th, along with the 3,000 block of East 17th and 4500 block of the Brownfield Highway.

We are told Evans was last driving a four door silver Dodge with Texas plates. The 41-year-old is known to have violent tendencies and is also wanted on a DWI warrant and a parole violation warrant, both out of Lubbock County.

Police say Evans, apparently, gave the family living at a home in the 1300 block of East 15th Street a commercial grade insecticide a week ago. It was applied on Tuesday around noon, and by early Wednesday morning, 5 people were hospitalized for inhalation.

The family went home on Saturday after investigators determined the house was safe. Police say Evans knew the family and worked at a local company where the commercial insecticide is used. However, NewsChannel 11 is told he is not licensed to distribute or use the chemical. 

Again, police are looking for Anthony Fred Evans. If you have any information, you are asked to call Crime Line at (806)741-1000.

Meanwhile, a funeral service for Vantashia Samuels is at 2:00 on Wednesday at the Lion's Chapel on 24th and MLK.
