Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), assisted by the Pascagoula Police Department, have arrested Larry Carter Beasley, age 36, of Chicago, Illinois, a fugitive who has been featured on the program, America's Most Wanted.
At approximately 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 20, 2007, Beasley was located and taken into custody, pursuant to a federal warrant, at a gas station on Highway 90 in Pascagoula, Mississippi.
Stephen F. Gomez, Acting Special Agent in Charge of the FBI in Mississippi, confirmed that a federal warrant charging Beasley with Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution was issued by a federal court in Chicago, Illinois, on May 31, 2006, and that FBI Agents in Chicago and Mississippi and the Pascagoula Police Department coordinated the arrest.
Beasley is wanted by Chicago authorities for Attempted First Degree Murder. On May 20, 2006, Beasley allegedly attacked his girlfriend, stabbing and slashing her at least 13 times while she held one of their six-week-old twin daughters. One of the stabs seriously injured the baby. When the girlfriend's mother came to her assistance, Beasley allegedly attacked her, as well, stabbing her three times. Beasley fled the apartment and hasn't been seen since. All three victims recovered from the injuries allegedly inflicted by Beasley.
In addition, Beasley, who is listed on the Illinois Sex Offender Registry, is wanted for failure to maintain accurate registration records as required by law.
Beasley is being held in the Pascagoula City Jail while he awaits extradition.
