The U.S. Marshal's Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force needs help identifying an unknown male, believed to be traveling with wanted fugitive -- Joshua Gurto (pictured above in cap).

The Conneaut Police Department says Gurto is wanted for aggravated murder and rape of a 13 month old girl. 

Police say Gurto and the unknown male were last seen on Friday, October 13th in Girard, Pennsylvania possibly driving a dark grey Ford F-150 (pictured above).
