FBI Searches for Jennifer McTigue
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is seeking the public’s help in locating Jennifer Ann McTigue, known formerly as Jennifer Lowe.
Paul D. Delacourt, Special Agent-in-Charge of the Honolulu FBI Office, and Gervin Miyamoto, U.S. Marshal for the District of Hawai’i, are searching for the wanted fugitive, who has been missing since June 30.
FBI officials say there is no record of McTigue leaving the state on a commercial flight, as she is expected to be hiding somewhere within the Hawaiian Islands.
Described as a 48-year-old white female, McTigue is also reportedly 5-foot-5 and 155 pounds. She is said to have brown hair and brown eyes.
McTigue was indicted in 2014 by a federal grand jury on criminal charges relating to an alleged $3 million scheme that committed fraud against homeowners, title companies, and banks. The FBI describes the scheme as “a complex real estate investment scam.”
When McTigue disappeared at the end of June, she was out on bond awaiting a federal trial that was scheduled for July 20.
According to the FBI, McTigue’s last known location was the Kahala Mall on June 30.
A silver 2004 Honda Pilot with the Hawai’i license plate NGP-809 that belonged to McTigue is also missing.
FBI agents believe McTigue has “chosen to flee rather than face trial” on what was being charged.
In addition, the FBI says McTigue’s last known address was an apartment located at 500 University Avenue in Honolulu.
Officials say McTigue has deep social and family ties to the Hawai’i Kai and Aina Hina communities. She also may be receiving assistance from an extremist, anti-government belief system known as the Sovereign Citizen Movement. FBI agents think members may be assisting her.
Anyone who has information on McTigue should contact the Honolulu FBI office at (808) 566-4300.
