Andrew Mario Obregon’s mother has been taken into custody because she met with him twice and gave him money, according to the Kenosha County Sheriff.
Obregon is wanted for questioning in Tywon Anderson death and also for leading police on two high speed chases over the past week.
Sheriff’s Office said Obregon is more of a threat to the community as this manhunt continues.
"I'm very confident in calling Andrew Obregon a suspect in Tywon Anderson murder. Not a person of interest anymore," said Kenosha County Sheriff in a press conference.
Police are getting tips on Obregon in the hundreds.
Kenosha County Sheriff’s office placed extra uniformed patrols in high visibility positions around the schools in Bristol, Paris and Brighton Townships. The Sheriff said there is no indication Obregon would hurt children, but schools in area are concerned.
The Sheriff’s Department is asking farmers to check their land in case Obregon is hiding there.
Authorities in Northern Illinois are aware of hunt for Obregon. He is known to have connections in Fox Lake and Antioch.
