Derrell Demon Brown is one of the 15 most wanted fugitives in the United States as of Tuesday, July 20.

Police say Derrell Brown is wanted for the double murder of Brown's girlfriend, Cherletta Baber-Bay, and her 25-year-old niece, Keyona Griffin, who were found murdered in a home back in 2019.

On Tuesday, the United States Marshals office announced a $25,000 reward for information directly leading to his arrest, and said Brown is one of the country's most wanted.

Brown faces multiple charges, including receiving and concealing a stolen firearm and two counts of homicide.

Authorities believe Brown fled the state and could be living with family in Wisconsin, Arizona, Georgia, and Ohio.

Brown is described as a 5-foot-8-inch tall man with black hair and brown eyes. He weighs about 180 pounds and has used the aliases "JJ Robinson," "Michael Richardson," and "Marcus Wright."
