Kahlil Malik Tatum is wanted for murder in Prince George’s County, Maryland and has been added to the FBI’s Most Wanted list.

A local arrest warrant was issued for Tatum on March 21, 2014, after he was charged with first degree murder for the death of his wife. A federal arrest warrant was issued on March 25, 2014, after he was charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

Law enforcement authorities believe that 8-year-old Relisha Tenau Rudd could be with Tatum and are seeking information about Tatum in connection with this investigation.

The search for Tatum and Rudd has gone multi-state.

Richmond Police said they spotted the pickup truck of the accused abductor of 8-year-old Relisha Rudd here in the Metro Thursday.

On Tuesday (March 25) the FBI offered a $25,000 reward for information that leads to Relisha. And Prince George’s County Police have offered a $25,000 for information that leads to Tatum.

On Wednesday the FBI announced that they are offering a separate reward of up to $20,000 for information that leads to Tatum’s arrest.

Police and the FBI say no tip is too small as they hunt for the girl and they hope the $70,000 reward will help them find her.
