Harrisonburg police are searching for Ali Abid, a suspect wanted for the murder of private investigator Greg Brown. Abid is believed to have fled the country shortly after Brown was killed.
Investigators with the Harrisonburg Police Department obtained warrants for Ali Abid, 49, of Weyers Cave.
Abid is wanted for first-degree murder and the use of a firearm in commission of first-degree murder.
Investigators with HPD, along with numerous other local, statewide, and federal agencies, have been working diligently on obtaining information and tracking Abid.
HPD can confirm that Ali Abid fled the area on Thursday of last week, and is no longer in the United States of America.
At a press conference Thursday, Lt. Kurt Boshart of HPD and Rockingham County Commonwealth’s Attorney Marsha Garst “did not take questions from reporters following their brief statements.” According to Pete DeLea’s reports in The Daily News-Record, Brown was hired to serve Abid with divorce papers.
