Richard V. Merritt, a disbarred attorney, was being monitored by law enforcement via an ankle monitor and was scheduled to surrender February 1, 2019, after being sentenced to 30 years in jail in Cobb County, where he had been convicted of stealing money from clients and elder abuse.

On February 2, 2019, Merritt’s elderly mother was found dead, having been violently killed. Her vehicle was missing and Merritt’s vehicle was recovered at the scene.

The vehicle he may be driving is a 2009 silver Lexus RX350, bearing a Georgia tag CBV 6004. He may have shaved his head or otherwise changed his appearance, and should be considered armed and dangerous. Do not try to engage him. If you see Merritt, please contact law enforcement immediately.

For further information please contact the Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force at (770) 508-2500. Tip information may also be called in to the U.S. Marshals at 1-877-Wanted-2 (1-877-926-8332) or e-mail [email protected].
