If you haven't turned on your television lately, Marine Cpl. Cesar Laurean, who is wanted by the FBI, has likely fled to Mexico. A grand jury in North Carolina brought five indictments against him this morning. Laurean is a suspect in the murder of Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach, a pregnant Marine who was killed, burned, and buried last month.

According to Fox News, the "hunt" for Laurean is on. Law enforcement officers — and America's Most Wanted — are trying to find the Marine. So far, there have been sightings.

We wondered, "How are they going to find this guy? How long can a fugitive live on the lam? And what techniques do investigators use to find criminals on the run? In the first hour, we'll try to answer all those questions. And whatever ones you have. Guests include law enforcement agents, professional trackers, and a forensic artist.
