A man featured on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? has been added to the US Marshals Service’s list of the 15 Most Wanted. According to a U.S. Marshals announcement, Michael Anthony Baltimore, a barber who starred on season 4 of the TLC series, is sought for allegedly shooting his prior employer Kendell Jerome Cook to death at Cook’s GQ Barbershop in Carlisle, Pa. on May 22, 2021. Cook was on the show as well, and the two looked to be extremely close throughout filming.
A $25,000 reward is being offered by the Marshalls for information leading to his capture. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives has also offered a $10,000 prize, with an extra $2,000 provided by Cumberland County Crime Stoppers. Baltimore, 43, has a history of violent criminality, according to the Marshals, and he “should be regarded armed and dangerous and should not be approached.”
“Michael Baltimore poses a tremendous threat to the community,” stated Ronald Davis, Director of the United States Marshals Service. “By including him on the list of the 15 Most Wanted, we have made his apprehension a major priority for the US Marshals Service.”
Baltimore is suspected of murdering Cook and injured coworker Anthony White in a shooting last May at the barbershop where he had worked for Cook until 2019.
According to WGAL 8, he was initially wanted by Carlisle Police Department on charges of homicide, attempted homicide, and weapons violations immediately after the crime until White and another witness identified Baltimore.
According to police, the incident was caused by a personal quarrel between Baltimore and the victims. Cook allegedly received threats from Baltimore for several months prior to the incident, according to Penn Live.
In 2019, Baltimore and Cook came on a couple episodes of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? to notify Ashley Martson that her husband Jay Smith had cheated on her with a lady in the barbershop restroom.
