The FBI reports that Hill was allegedly involved in the shooting death of Rosenbloom and Hill and his two accomplices, that are believed to now be deceased, also allegedly kidnapped a tow truck driver at gunpoint later that November in 1971. The tow truck driver was forced to drive the trio to the airport.

The FBI reports that the men are also alleged to have hijacked a Trans World Airlines flight, re-routing the plane to Tampa, Florida. After allegedly exchanging the hostages for fuel, Hill and the two accomplices are then said to have flown to Havana, Cuba.

The FBI has an updated picture of what Hill may look like today. They say that Hill may be living in or around Cuba, and want to bring him to justice. Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI.
