Michael Anthony Baltimore, a man featured on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, has been added to the United States Marshals Service’s 15 Most Wanted list.
Baltimore, a barber who appeared during Season 4, is wanted for the murder of his previous employer, Kendell Jerome Cook. A release from the U.S. Marshals states that Baltimore is wanted for allegedly shooting Cook to death at Cook’s GQ Barbershop in Carlisle, PA on May 22, 2021.
Cook, who was also featured on the TLC show, appeared to be close friends with Baltimore, at the time. The pair appeared a few times on the reality show, as part of Ashley Martson and her husband, Jay Smith’s storyline. They blew the whistle on Jay to his wife, after he allegedly cheated on her with a woman in the barbershop restroom.
Jay’s sister, Ornella “Poochie” Smith, later took to social media to allege that the storyline was a production “setup” and that Jay “was so f**king horny and stupid and fell right into the trap.”
A $25k reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest of Baltimore. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives also offered a $10,000 reward and Cumberland County Crime Stoppers have added $2,000 to the potential reward total.
The Marshals alerted the public that the 43-year-old had a history of violent crime and “should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.”
“Michael Baltimore poses a serious threat to the community,” U.S. Marshals Service Director Ronald Davis said, via a statement. “By placing him on the 15 Most Wanted list, we have made his capture a top priority of the U.S. Marshals Service.”
Baltimore is accused of gunning down Cook and injuring co-worker, Anthony White, at the barbershop where he had been Cook’s employee since 2019.
He was originally wanted by the Carlisle Police Department, on charges of homicide, attempted homicide, and firearms violations, after the killing. WGAL 8 reported that White and another witness identified Baltimore. Authorities said that a personal dispute between Baltimore and the victims led to the incident. Penn Live reported that Cook had been receiving threats from Baltimore several months before the murder.
