New Developments In Search for Jon Ray Rodriguez

A new effort to put an accused kidnapper back behind bars has now surfaced on the social networking site, Facebook. Jon Ray Rodriguez, 29, is charged with aggravated kidnapping and assault. Investigators say he beat and kidnapped his former 19-year-old girlfriend back in February.

Rodriguez was arrested and put in jail. Then, a judge lowered his bond based on e-mails, allegedly from the victim. Those e-mails took some of the blame for the incident. Now, investigators say Rodriguez broke into the victim's account and forged the e-mails.  Lubbock Police filed new charges of tampering with evidence and breach of computer security last week.

That's also when they asked NewsChannel 11's Most Wanted to profile this case.  Friends of the victim started a Facebook page to help catch the suspect. It's loaded with several different pictures of Rodriguez, so take a good look because police still suspect he's in Lubbock. Postings on the new Facebook page claim he's been seen driving around in town. Investigators say anyone caught helping Rodriguez could also face jail time.

A local bank is teaming up with NewsChannel 11 and Crime Line to help catch this suspect. ABC Bank is offering to match the Crime Line reward to help get Rodriguez in custody. If you know where he is our how to find him, call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
