Glen Holmes Jr. was John Walsh's #10 Most Wanted fugitive of 2009. Police say on May 1, 2006, he carjacked 32-year old Conroe, Texas resident Barry Thomas, and then shot and killed him. In his AMW re-enactment, he proceeded to hold up a fast food taco drive-thru and ordered tacos right after the murder.
This is a case that REALLY pissed me off when I saw it on AMW. I say it all the time, there is never a murder that is "necessary" but I hate ones like this that never had to come to this. Holmes had already carjacked Thomas. Thomas complied and gave him the car when the gun was pointed. What was the need for allegedly shooting him afterwards as well?
And the robbing a taco place afterwards was bizarre and callous at the same time.
This is obviously a guy that is dangerous and based on what police say has no regard for human life. Not to mention, quite frankly, I am shocked he hasn't been caught yet. He seemed like he'd be one of the easier top tenners to catch for 2009.
His AMW area lists him as possibly in the Huntsville or Houston areas of Texas, or New Orleans.
IMO, it's just a matter of time before police finally reel him in.
P.S. Thankfully, all remaining John Walsh top tenners now have a thread in this forum.
Excellent job! As far as Holmes goes, I also do not understand as to why he's still on the run. Perhaps he's living in the Houston or New Orleans areas and not drawing much attention to himself, although his behaviour during the crime spree makes that theory a bit hard for me to believe.
I'm glad you brought that up. I was thinking that myself. However, It's very rare we see a fugitive wanted under 10 years and also pretty young die shortly afterwards on the run, which is why I thought posters might have thought I was crazy if I brought it up. I guess not or me and you are both crazy.
Considering how absolutely ridiculous it is that it's taking this long, I guess anything is possible. If Holmes continued his alleged violent streak, or got caught up in illegal activities, he could have one day crossed the wrong person and been killed himself. Or if he tried to flee to Mexico, I realize he's not Hispanic, but he's a wanted fugitive in a state that borders that country, he could have been killed there.
I still think he's alive and has somehow has managed to defy expectations. And if so, it's just a matter of time before he slips up, or someone who knows something finally tells authorities his whereabouts.
