Authorities were looking for Hung Tien Pham and said that he has family in the Bay Area. Pham’s crime three decades ago came to be known as the Boston Chinatown Massacre, after which the suspect fled the country. The FBI said he was last seen in Bangkok, Thailand in the 1990s.

Among the six victims, only one man survived. “In addition to the quintuple homicide, Pham is also wanted by the Boston Police Department for another murder that occurred on January 8, 1991, four days before the massacre. Pham was an associate of the Ping On crime syndicate & has ties to Boston, Chicago, New York, and Philadelphia,” the FBI said.

Authorities warned the public that Pham was to be considered armed and dangerous and set him as an international flight risk. Today, the suspect is 60 years old, and FBI officials are asking the public for information regarding his whereabouts, ABC7 News reported.
