Connections: He has possible ties to individuals in Florida, Texas, and Mexico.
Conviction: Diaz-Juarez has been convicted of sex trafficking and conspiracy to hide illegal aliens. In October 2013, he was charged with running an international organization that involved sex-trafficking. Although there were 13 other co-conspirators, Diaz-Juarez is the only fugitive.
The sex-trafficking operation that Diaz-Juarez ran from 1999-2013 utilized “pimps” (padrotes) that would provide women and girls to brothels and other businesses. Diaz-Juarez forced some of the women and girls to perform sexual acts by coercing them and locking them into cages as a way to control their behavior.
Reward: $50,000 for information leading directly to the arrest of Alfonso Angel Diaz-Juarez.
Description: Black hair, brown eyes, around 5’10” and weighing approximately 225 lbs. He was born in the People’s Republic of China on November 23, 1969. He is a white Asian male of Chinese heritage. He was the owner and operator of Asian massage parlors.
He has also been referred to as James Li and Shugang Li.
Connections: Seeing as he had permanent resident status as an alien in Kansas City, Missouri, Li may have ties with individuals in the area. He and his wife, Wei Li Pang, only lived in Missouri for one year between 2006 and 2007.
Conviction: In March 2008, the United States District in Kansas City, Missouri, charged Li with four counts of aiding and abetting the transport of females to be used for prostitution within the couple’s massage parlors.
From May 2006 to May 2007, both Li, his wife, and their partners transported at least 5 females via interstate commerce for sexual activity that courts have ruled as illegal. In March 2008, the FBI issued a warrant for both Li and his wife’s arrest.
Reward: No reward is currently being offered
