Registe reportedly in Virgin Islands

The FBI confirmed today that Michael Jason Registe, the man wanted for the murders of Randy Newton Jr. and Bryan Kilgore, may be in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

If Registe, 24, is in the Virgin Islands, he is likely to be on the island of St. Thomas, said FBI Special Agent and spokesman Stephen Emmett of the Atlanta field office. He declined to say why agents believe he may have fled there.

Emmett stressed though, that the FBI is not limiting its search to the Virgin Islands.
