Manhunt Monday: Search Continues for the Man Accused of Running over and Killing Girlfriend
SANTA MARIA, Calif.- The district attorney's office and Santa Maria Police are asking for the public's help to find 30-year-old Jack Misiaskez.
On February 28th, police say Misiaszek ran over and killed his girlfriend, then 20-year-old Antionette Raygoza, after they got into a fight in the 1600 block of North McClelland Street. Back in May, Misiaszek pled not guilty to vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence and later posted bail. On August 8th, Misiaszek failed to appear in court.
"Police are actively looking for him, probation is actively looking for him, I'm assuming his bail officer is actively looking for him, so if he's found, when he's found, he will come to court, we will bring him into custody," says Brandon Jebens, Deputy District Attorney.
The victim's family who once thought it was an accident is now having their doubts.
"All of his actions everything he's done since then, I don't believe it was an accident, I think there was more to the story than we thought at the very beginning because if this was an accident he would have contacted us one way or the other regardless of what happened," says Debbie Garcia, the victim's aunt.
Neighbors who live close to where the crash happened say they haven't seen Misiaszek for months, "the last time I saw him he was behind the projects, he was in his car by his house," says Theresa, a neighbor.
The victim's family says after Misiaszek posted bail he got a new girlfriend and has yet to hear from him.
