More Information On Search For Cpl. Cesar Laurean

Onslow County authorities Saturday obtained a first degree murder warrant for 21 year old Marine Corporal Cesar Laurean.

Late Saturday night Laurean was spotted by 3 to 4 citizens at a Greyhound bus station in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Investigators say Laurean left Jacksonville early Friday morning. That same day he was listed as "unauthorized absence" by the Marine Corps.

The corporal was driving a black quad cab 2004 Dodge pickup truck with North Carolina plate TRR-1522. That truck was found Tuesday, January 15th in a motel parking lot near the Raleigh-Durham Airport.

Onslow County authorities say the victim's ATM card was found at the Durham bus station this weekend, while were several reported sightings of his truck in the Raleigh-Durham area.

Laurean is from Clark County, Nevada. But the Marine Corps says he was born in Mexico and still has family in that country.

The Marines say he joined the Corps in September 2004 and was trained as a personnel clerk.

At Camp Lejeune he was assigned to the Group Consolidated Administration Center, Service Company, Combat Logistics Regiment 27, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, II Marine Expeditionary Force.

Saturday Onslow County deputies asked the FBI to help with the nationwide search for Corporal Laurean.

A special FBI tip line has been added. The number is 1-800-CALL-FBI.

    I believe that Laurean should not only be tried for one murder but for two. Whether or not the baby was born, he was still a live breathing person. The State of NC should change that law immediately. As for Laurean, he should face the same punishment as he gave to Lauterbach and her baby.

    This person is suppose to be a leader in the United States Marine Corps,instead he did his best to destroy the image of an institution that stands for good,This person dosen't deserve a trial,only a bullet,I gave my whole adult life to the Corps and I'm not happy with what the Corps has turned into;"a bunch of politically correct butheads,let's try keeping the traditions alive and work to keep the Corps what it was meant to be,young man you had better hope that I don't spot you,because if I do,you'll never see the inside of a courtroom,in my opinion,you are still a maggot,thanks for what you brought down on our family

    I'm wondering where Cpl. Laurean's wife was during all of the events leading to finding Lauterbach's body? I will always support the Marines and the military, for doing a great job of supporting our country. One soldier does not ruin our armed forces. Stand tall and support each other. Go Army /Marines
