A U.S. Marine deserter is being hunted by the FBI after allegedly murdering his mother's boyfriend. The suspect is expected to have access to high powered weaponry and has been placed on the FBI's Most Wanted list.

Michael Alexander Brown, 22, is suspected in the murder that occurred nine miles east of Roanoke, Virginia. Brown's mother found her boyfriend's body at home and immediately called the police.

Brown deserted Camp Lejeune in North Carolina last October and has been on unauthorized absence since then, reportedly staying in national parks and possibly living in the woods.
