FORT MYERS, Fla. - A career criminal, now accused of murder and kidnapping, has been added to Lee
County's 10 Most Wanted List.
36-year-old Lawrence Paul Rasnick, Jr. is wanted in connection with the murder of Larrick Sikes, whose lifeless body was dumped on the side of the road between Staley Farms Road and Greenbriar Farms on October 20th, before he was set on fire. Brian Casey of Fort Myers has already been charged for his role in Sikes' murder, as well as
the October 15th murder of Ryan Vanderson. However, deputies believe Rasnick fled the Lee County area shortly after the murder, though he'd been known to frequent the Orange Riverand Lehigh Acres areas previously.
Rasnick is definitely no stranger to a life of crime. In Lee County alone, he's been arrested 31 times on a wide variety of charges, including narcotics, robbery, battery and DUI. He's also spent time in federal prison for robbery, and was just released from state prison in June 2010 after serving a year behind bars. Rasnick is a known drug user and
a self-professed White Supremacist. He has tattoos all over his body, including a swastika on his left arm, a naked woman on his right leg, the name Rasnick on his stomach, and a dragon inked on the back of his head, among others. Detectives say Rasnick should absolutely be considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Lawrence Rasnick, Jr. is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477). All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Tips may also be made on-line at www.swflcriimestoppers.org.
