Crime

West Palm Beach's Most Wanted Criminals

Our justice system is the string that holds the fabric of civilized society together. There would be no repercussions for murder, rape, and all sorts of horrible things humans are capable of doing without it. And without punishment and discipline against those who commit these crimes, people would be forced to seek justice on their own in twisted and bloody ways.

The West Palm Beach Police Department lists three people in its most wanted section. These three people are accused of attempting murder and then fleeing the area before they could go through the process to either clear their name or serve for the crimes a jury found them guilty of committing, leaving the families of their victims with little sense of closure. Anyone with any information is urged to call 561-822-1900.

Jess Swanson is a staff writer at New Times. Born and raised in Miami, she graduated from the University of Miami’s School of Communication and wrote briefly for the student newspaper until realizing her true calling: pissing off fraternity brothers by reporting about their parties on her crime blog. Especially gifted in jumping rope and solving Rubik’s cubes, she also holds the title for longest stint as an unpaid intern in New Times history. She left the Magic City for New York to earn her master’s degree from Columbia University School of Journalism, where she spent a year profiling circumcised men who were trying to regrow their foreskins for a story that ultimately won the John Horgan Award for Critical Science Journalism. Terrified by pizza rats and arctic temperatures, she quickly returned to her natural habitat.
