Additionally, Morquecho was a lieutenant in the Ecuadoran military and may be familiar with different types of weapons. He was also allegedly assigned to the military's special forces branch. Morquecho may also have a propensity towards violence, as displayed by his prior actions. Additionally, he has ties to New York and Nebraska.

CAUTION

Luis E. Morquecho is being sought for escaping from a corrections facility in Grand Island, Nebraska. Morquecho plead not guilty to state charges of kidnapping and a jury trial was scheduled to begin on April 18, 2005. However, just 3 days prior to the trial, Morquecho escaped from jail. Reportedly, Morquecho, along with the assistance of another inmate at the jail, overpowered the correctional officer who was overseeing the recreation yard. Morquecho climbed to the roof of the jail, then climbed to a lower portion of the structure where he jumped to the ground and fled.

On April 15, 2005, Luis E. Morquecho was charged with escape in the County Court of Hall County, Nebraska. Subsequently, on April 21, 2005, a federal arrest warrant was issued by the United States District Court, District of Nebraska, after Morquecho was charged with unlawful flight to avoid confinement.
