26K Bounty for Infamous Murder Suspect
Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Wesnel Isaac, age 32, formerly of Fort Myers has been named as one of the U.S. Marshals Service 15 Most Wanted, a dubious distinction which will give him worldwide attention as law enforcement authorities ramp up efforts to apprehend him.  The reward now increases up to $26,000 dollars for information leading to his arrest.  "This is an important development in our continuing efforts to bring this violent, career criminal to justice," said Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott.  "Someone has information and I'm confident today's announcement will get the lines ringing.  Isaacs will quickly know his days of freedom are numbered," he said.   

Isaac is wanted on multiple violent felony crimes committed in 2007 including a triple homicide.  In the latter, co-conspirators were quickly apprehended, charged, convicted and sentenced.  One offender is serving three life sentences.  Isaac has been featured as a Most Wanted subject with Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers on many occasions and they offer a reward up to $1,000 dollars.  The U.S. Marshals offer up to another $25,000 dollars for direct information which results in his arrest. 

Authorities believe Isaac is a threat to ANY community he may currently reside and should be considered armed and dangerous.  If anyone has information on his whereabouts, please call the U.S. Marshals at 1-800-336-0102 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS(8477). 

Additional details are available at www.usmarshals.gov or Crime Stoppers at www.swflcrimestoppers.org.  Media inquiries and interview requests for the Sheriff are directed to the Public Information Officer at (239) 477-1340.
