Case[]

Details: Twenty-five-year-old John Anthony Diaz has been described as bright and articulate; he is a bodybuilder who once studied to be a physical therapist. However, he is now wanted for the murder of twenty-five-year-old Dawn Brown in Quincy, Massachusetts. Diaz had moved to the area in 1991 and dated Dawn's sister Kimberly Brown for eighteen months until 1992. On July 10, 1993, Diaz gunned down Dawn outside of her parent's home. Authorities now believe Diaz meant to kill Kimberly, and mistakenly killed Dawn.
Diaz was apparently depressed by the break up and had stalked Kimberly up until the night her sister was killed. Authorities have determined that after the murder, Diaz fled the country and traveled to the Far East and Europe, under a passport issued to "Gregory Scott Grayson". However, authorities now believe that Diaz may have returned to the United States. He may be working in the medical field. He is considered armed and dangerous.
Extra Notes: This case first aired as a Special Bulletin on the March 15, 1996 episode of Unsolved Mysteries. Diaz was scheduled to be profiled on America’s Most Wanted before his capture.
Results: Captured. On March 22, 1996, Diaz was captured in Guyana as a result of the broadcast. A viewer recognized him as a man who worked out at his gym in Georgetown. He was still living under the name Gregory Scott Grayson and was married to a woman named Linda Jairam. He held off deportation by refusing to confirm his identity. However, police were able to establish that Grayson and Diaz were the same person. He was returned to the United States, convicted of murder, and sentenced to life in prison.
