Illegal Beaner Fugitive Luis Rodriguez-Mena is charged with killing flight attendant Young Kavila in her apartment - He has since fled back to Mexico living the high life....
Solving the 1999 slaying of a 30-year-old flight attendant in Des Plaines would be a life-changing moment for several people, including Detective Jennifer De Pastors.
She has long been searching for Luis Rodriguez-Mena, who is charged with slitting Young Kavila's throat from ear to ear with a knife.
The end of the case could bring Kavila's family in Korea a sense of justice — and relief to Rodriguez-Mena's ex-girlfriend and 12-year-old son, who have hidden from him for 10 years.
The case, spotlighted by the Tribune in its "Fugitives From Justice" series last year, will air on the June 15 episode of "America's Most Wanted." The scheduled broadcast gives De Pastors some hope the longtime cold case can be put to rest.
