The Broward Sheriff's Office says it believes it knows who killed a 34-year-old man at a West Park warehouse last month, but investigators don't know where he is.

The sheriff's office says 35-year-old Nalio Williams is the suspect in the shooting death of Raimundo Modia, who showed up to the warehouse on the 2100 block of SW 57th Terrace on December 22 planning to sell a Mercedes.

Instead, the cops say that Williams shot Modia several times and that Modia died at the warehouse.

Cops say Williams drove a stolen Toyota Tundra to the warehouse and took the Mercedes after shooting Modia.

The Mercedes was found abandoned the next day in Miami Gardens.

Police say Williams is a career criminal, and considering his previous arrests for identity theft and fraud, he may be using an alias.

The sheriff's office adds that Williams may still be in South Florida. Then again, he may not be in South Florida.

There's a warrant out for Williams' arrest for first-degree murder, and there's a $1,000 reward for giving Crime Stoppers a good tip.
