The Massachusetts State Police today added to their Most Wanted list a Lawrence man accused of the strangulation homicide of the mother of his child last September in Methuen.

The State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section added EMILIO DeLAROSA, 32, to their list of Most Wanted fugitives and, along with the State Police Detective Unit for Essex County and Methuen Police, is intensively searching for him.

DeLAROSA is wanted for the September 12, 2016 murder of Wanda Rosa, the mother of his 4-year-old son, inside Ms. Rosa’s Tudor Street home. At the time of the homicide, Rosa, 29, had an active restraining order against DeLAROSA, who had been recently released from state prison. DeLAROSA had a prior history of domestic violence against Rosa, including a 2014 conviction in Essex County for attempted murder, kidnapping, assault and battery on a pregnant victim, and aggravated assault and battery.

DeLAROSA is Hispanic, 5’9” tall, weighs about 160 pounds, and has a muscular build, brown hair, and brown eyes. He has two tattoos: a large cross on his back extending up to the base of his neck, and the name “Wanda” on the inside of his left bicep (wanted poster and photos included).

In addition to his previous domestic violence conviction, DeLAROSA has been convicted of assault on a police officer and resisting arrest and should be considered armed and dangerous. He has ties to Lawrence, Methuen, New  Hampshire, and the Dominican Republic.

Anyone who sees EMILIO DeLAROSA, or who has information as to where he is, is urged to call the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section immediately at 1-800-KAPTURE (1-800-527-8873). welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
