A Portland man remains on the run after he allegedly killed his girlfriend at Union in Hope Bay on Monday.

Lidley Samuels, who is of a Toms Hope address in the Rio Grande Valley, is being sought in connection with the death of 51-year-old Joan Patterson Fitzgerald.

The police say reports indicate that the couple had a rocky relationship and so Patterson Fitzgerald ended it.

Samuels then reportedly threatened to harm her.

The woman’s son reportedly told the police that he became concerned about his mother’s safety and decided to visit her on Monday night when he found her on the floor with blood coming from an injury to her head.

The police are asking anyone knowing the whereabouts of Lidley Samuels to immediately contact them.
