Wright has been charged in Cook County with one count of first-degree murder, but authorities believe he has fled the state to avoid prosecution. Wright is also facing a federal charge of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

According to the federal charges, investigators were able to link Wright to a Facebook account under the name of "John Wall," and matched pictures on that Facebook account to Wright's driver's license photo.

Investigators determined that account was accessed by a device in Madison, Wisconsin, on Sept. 6. According to the FBI, Wright has a cousin who lives in Wisconsin, with whom he might be staying.

Wright is still at large, and should be considered armed and dangerous, according to the FBI.
