Authorities are on the hunt for a suspect in connection to the murder of Pava LaPere.
The 26-year-old, who served as CEO of EcoMap Technologies and was featured on this year’s Forbes 30 Under 30 list, was found dead in her Baltimore apartment with signs of blunt-force trauma on Sept. 25, police confirmed to NBC News.
During a press conference held the following day, authorities announced that they have issued an arrest warrant for Jason Dean Billingsley in connection to her case, stating that the 32-year-old is wanted for first-degree murder, assault, reckless endangerment and additional charges.
“This individual will kill, and he will rape,” Commissioner Richard Worley said during the press conference. “He will do anything he can to cause harm.”
Worley also went on to issue a warning directly to the suspect.
“Every single police officer in Baltimore city and the state of Maryland, as well as the U.S. Marshalls are looking for you,” he said. “We will find you, so I will ask you to turn yourself into any officer at a police station because we will take you into custody eventually.”
