PHOENIX — True-crime show network Investigation Discovery will feature a Phoenix fugitive who’s been on the run since 2003 in an upcoming episode of “In Pursuit with John Walsh” in hopes viewers may provide leads to his whereabouts.

In the next episode of season 3 titled “Letters from a Predator,” scheduled to air Wednesday at 9 p.m., William Ray Plemons, last seen in Phoenix over 18 years ago, is the suspect of a murder case led by John Walsh who’s joined by his son Callahan.

When police found Emralinda Macatanga murdered in Arizona, an investigation led authorities to suspect her husband and former prison pen pal, Plemons, was her killer.

After he was last seen in July 2003, authorities believe he could have traveled to Florida, but could be anywhere now. The fugitive has gone by various aliases, including “Ray,” “Bubba,” “William Taylor,” and “Johnny Lee Taylor.”

Viewers with any information on Plemons’ whereabouts are encouraged to call 1-833-3-PURSUE or submit an online tip form.
