A disbarred lawyer is supposed to be in prison for ripping off clients. Instead, he’s on the run for allegedly killing his mother.
Federal agents say Richard Merritt from Georgia may be traveling through New Mexico.
He was on an ankle monitor and was scheduled to surrender last Friday to begin serving 30 years in prison. On Saturday, his mother was found violently murdered.
Authorities believe Merritt killed her and stole her silver 2009 Lexus SUV. If you see Merritt, you are asked to call the police.
