The 46-year-old, who was declared to be at large on Monday, July 16, 2018, cut off his ankle monitor and is currently being hunted down for at least three slayings that took place last week.

During a press conference shared on Twitter, Art Acevedo, Houston Police Chief, announced that the proper authorities were doing everything in their power to find and capture Rodriguez.

According to Police Chief Acevedo, the criminal was last spotted in the Houston area, in Texas, and may be walking into neighborhoods and knocking on doors pretending to be looking for someone

He was last seen driving a 2017 dark gray Nissan Sentra with a Texas license plate K-P-D-2-8-0-5. But, despite all the available information on Rodriguez, Police Chief Acevedo encouraged people not to approach him.

The possible serial killer is believed to armed and dangerous, so any attempt to contact or approach him should be avoided as it could result in a possible injury or death.

It isn't certain, but Rodriguez may be responsible for at least five attacks in the area, three of which resulted in deaths by shooting. The first attack took place on July 9, during a home-invasion robbery, where the victim survived.

Pamela Johnson, a 62-year-old, wasn't so lucky; four days after the first attack, she was found dead at her home in northwest Harris County, and her car, a 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser, was stolen and abandoned at Willowbrook Mall.

After reviewing the footage captured by the surveillance video, police identified Rodriguez parking the vehicle and leaving the scene. The second and third murder occurred at a mattress store, one on Saturday and another one on Sunday.

Police are now looking for any possible information regarding Rodriguez's whereabouts and are asking people to please call the Harris County Sheriff's Office Homicide Unit in case they have any news that might be pertinent to the case.
