VIPD Needs Your Help To Find Edictor Manuel ‘Puddy’ Esquillin On St. Croix
FREDERIKSTED — Police need your help tonight to find Edictor Manuel “Puddy” Esquillin on St. Croix.
Esquillin, 34, of Estate Two Brothers, is wanted for first-degree attempted murder, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.
The VIPD described him as an Hispanic man who stands 5-feet, 5-inches tall and weighs about 130 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes, has a tattoo of a tree and roses on his left shoulder, a tattoo of a tombstone on his upper left chest, a tattoo of a marijuana leaf on lower right abdomen, and tattoos of multicolored blocks, letters and star on left forearm.
Esquillin is known to frequent the Walter I.M. Hodge Pavilion, the Frederiksted Vegetable Market and Frederiksted Town, according to the VIPD.
“Seems like such a nice young man,” Jason said in the Virgin Islands Free Press today. “Why do people give guys like this the time of day and let them act the way they do? Family, friends, girlfriends, etc.”
Anyone who encounters him or knows his whereabouts are urged to call 911, the Crime Tip Line at (340) 778-4950, or the paying anonymous tip line Crime Stoppers USVI at 1(800) 222-8477.
