— A truck linked to a murder investigation in Craven County was found Friday in a parking lot at the North Carolina State Board of Elections, investigators said.

Authorities are looking for Cesar Acosta, 39, who was allegedly driving the truck.

He is accused of killing Eustorgio Ramirez, 38, whose body was found in the bushes Thursday in front of Acosta's house in Vanceboro, according to WNCT-TV in Greenville, N.C.

Acosta is a convicted killer and was recently paroled, WNCT reported. He also goes by the name Geraldo Cesar Acosta Martinez.

Immigration officials told WNCT that Acosta is in the U.S. illegally. He served 15 years for a second-degree murder conviction in Person County in 1991 and was deported after his release in 2006.

If you see Acosta, call 911. The Craven County Sheriff's Office can be reached at 252-636-6620.

    How ironic his truck is found at the NC Board of Elections.

    NCGal; Where did you get Vance from? I believe it says Craven.

    If there was no work here he would not be here. Then if there were no free food,free housing, free medical care and if he had to pay taxes and learn English he definitely would say adios American.

    NCGal I missed this--The white truck belonged to his employer, Mills Logging.

    Elections are coming up, so let's try to find candidates who might actually act on their speeches!

    Stop the bad ones, help the good ones!

    All of my comments on this matter keep being filtered because I mention that they are illegal aliens.

    If they were illegal immigrants - their passports and visas would have been expired.

    .... story says "Immigration officials told WNCT that Acosta is in the U.S. illegally. He served 15 years for a second-degree murder conviction in Person County in 1991 and was deported after his release in 2006."

    "......and he's illegal? Why is he even still in the States?"

    And who is going to keep him out - the government "of the people, by the people and for the people?"

    Acosta WAS deported. He came back to the US illegally. I wonder who his employer was. Employers need to be prosecuted. That's asking too much. If there was no work here Acosta would no reason to be here unless he stole copper or ammo shells and sold them for money. Lordy, Lordy we are giving the United States away. Oh! I forgot they get welfare, free medical and free schooling here.

    "If he is here illegally, why was he not deported when he was released the 1st time he got in trouble????????????"

    He was deported. Can you read?

    Well after my last deleted posts on this subject. I guess I’m pretty much relegated to, Kumbaya my Lord Kumbaya. And I love puppies and kittens.
