A Harris County convicted murderer, who is one of Texas’ 10 most wanted fugitives after he escaped from prison, is still being sought and police are offering more money for information on his whereabouts.

The reward has been increased to $10,000 this month for any information leading to the capture of Jose Fernando Bustos-Diaz, 28, who escaped from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Briscoe Unit in 2010 while serving a 35-year murder sentence.


ORIGINAL STORY: Harris killer, another inmate may have fled to Mexico

He is convicted of a murder he committed while he was working as a ranch hand in Harris County in 2005. He was sentenced to 35 years and escaped from prison in Dilley, Texas on April 6, 2010. Dilley is located about 70 miles southwest of San Antonio.

Bustos-Diaz is described as 5 feet 8 inches and weighs 195 pounds. He is distinguished by birthmarks on his chest and acne scarring on his face. He also has multiple tattoos including a heart with a cross on the webbing on his left hand; the name ‘Vanessa‘ with one dot on the inside of his left wrist; and the name ‘Lizeth’ on the inside of his right wrist.

Authorities believe that he could have fled across the Mexican border.

Anybody with information regarding Bustos-Diaz’s whereabouts can submit an anonymous tip by calling the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477) or visiting the DPS website.
