90 Day Fiancé star who appeared on US Marshals 15 Most Wanted list has been arrested

90 Day Fiancé star who appeared on US Marshals 15 Most Wanted list has been arrested

He was wanted in connection to the death of his former boss in May 2021

A man who once appeared on the reality show 90 Day Fiancé was arrested in Florida on Friday (13 January), six months after he was named on the United States Marshal Service's 15 Most Wanted list.

Michael Anthony Baltimore, 44, was wanted in connection to the death of Kendell Jerome Cook in Pennsylvania, in May 2021.

A reward of up to $25,000 was offered in June last year for information leading to the arrest of Baltimore, who was wanted on charges for assault, homicide and parole violation.

Cook, who was Baltimore’s boss until 2019, was shot and killed at his barber shop in Carlisle, Pennsylvania while another man was injured.

At the time, U.S. Marshals Service Director Ronald L. Davis said: “Michael Baltimore poses a serious threat to the community. By placing him on the 15 Most Wanted list, we have made his capture a top priority of the U.S. Marshals Service.”

A release from the US Marshals also warned that ‘Baltimore has an extensive criminal history and is known to be violent. He should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached’.

He was placed on the US Marshals Most Wanted list last year.

Baltimore was eventually arrested in Davie, Florida, carrying drugs and a loaded handgun after fleeing a bar fight, US Marshals have said.

Baltimore is currently being held in Florida and is facing charges including possession of fentanyl and marijuana with intent to sell, as well as possession and display of a firearm and giving fake ID to police.

In a statement, Davis said: “I want to thank the police officers in Davie, Florida, for their diligence in arresting the fugitive.

“I am also very appreciative of the efforts of our partners in Cumberland County who have been working on this case. I hope his capture brings some sense of relief and comfort to his victims’ families.”

Sean McCormack, the district attorney in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, said: “Now that he is in custody, we can finally begin the court process where he will be facing first-degree murder charges.”

Baltimore had appeared on several episodes of season four of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? alongside Cook.

Baltimore and Cook were the ones who broke the bad news to Ashley Martson that her then husband Jay Smith had cheated on her.

In a post on social media Martson responded to the news of Baltomore’s arrest - sharing a screenshot of a news story about the arrest on Instagram, she wrote: “Praise God! I hope these families get the closure they desperately needed now.”
