CHICAGO – On the run for more than a month, 22-year-old Kevin Edwards, the man wanted for the murder of 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee, is still on the loose.

The killing made headlines Nov. 2 and fortified the Chicago police to find the killers. The Chicago Police Deparment is now joining forces with the US Marshals office. Two other suspects have already been captured.

Tyshawn, authorities said, was innocent, caught in the middle of a gang war tied to his father.

Fugitive hunters have upped the reward to catch Edwards, an additional $5,000 for any anonymous tip that leads to his arrest. He’s likely being hidden by family or friends -- probably on Chicago’s South Side.

Edwards is 22 years old, 6 feet 1 inches and 200 pounds.
