Wanted for first-degree murder and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

A $100,000 reward has been offered for the capture of Dennis Melvyn Howe.

In January 1983, Howe is believed to have murdered and sexually molested a 9-year-old girl from Toronto, Canada. He was charged with first-degree murder and then fled.

FBI officials believe Howe may be in the Salt Lake area. He is described as a heavy smoker. The Metro-Toronto police have offered the $100,000 reward for information leading to his arrest and conviction. He is considered extremely dangerous.
