Multiple law enforcement agencies have been comparing leads, talking to witnesses and dealing with extradition hurdles in their hunt to solve the 2002 slaying of 17-year-old Broward County teenager Marissa Karp.

Now, their investigation has extended to the Bahamas, where they say a person of interest lives. Almanto Coakley, a 38-year-old native of the Bahamas, is wanted for questioning in Karp’s killing, officials say.

But it is not the only reason Coakley is wanted back in South Florida: Coakley is one of two fugitives facing first-degree murder charges in a Sunrise shooting that left two men dead and one paralyzed the same year that Karp was slain.
