ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. (WRIC) -

A person of interest in a Petersburg quadruple homicide on Easter weekend was spotted on surveillance video in North Carolina less than 24 hours after the crime occurred, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.

U.S. Marshals and detectives from the Petersburg Bureau of Police confirmed Alexander Roosevelt Hill Jr., also known as “Real Deal,” traveled to Roanoke Rapids, N.C. by taxi just after 12 a.m. on Easter Sunday; video footage of Hill at an Amtrak station in Rocky Mount, N.C. later that morning was recently obtained.

Hill was also spotted inside a Waffle House restaurant in North Carolina.

On Saturday, April 19, crews were called to a residence off of Harding Street in Petersburg for a report of a fire. Inside the home, emergency personnel discovered the remains of four bodies. Two of the victims, Tanique Chavis and 2-year-old Delvari Chavis, died from the fire and smoke inhalation, according to the medical examiner. Pauline Wilkins and Vicki Ansar were stabbed multiple times in the torso. All four deaths were ruled homicides.

In April, one of the victims’ family members, Vivian Chavis, filed a protective order against Hill. In the order, Chavis said Hill told her, "I'm going to get you." She also stated that "This man beat me badly," and that she wanted him to leave her alone so she can "get on with my life."

According to a warrant obtained by ABC 8News Reporter Parker Slaybaugh in April, Hill sent a text from his cell phone around 3:30 a.m. on April 19, shortly before the four victims were killed, hinting he may commit suicide. The text read:

"Hey Brother. I am here! My destination. Should things go as I have planned I no longer exist. Thats right claim my remains and ensure they are creamated. Get over to my house and remove everything. In my bedroom there is a small dresser that has a blue light on it there is a pair of socks on top as soon as you open it that has 61.00 in it and change."

But according to Kevin Connelly of the U.S. Marshals Service – Eastern District of Virginia, the surveillance footage from North Carolina suggests Hill may still be alive.

"We do believe [Hill] is getting rides, that he's not actually driving," said Esther Hyatt, a spokesperson for the Petersburg Bureau of Police. "For awhile, some people said that Alexander Hill might have killed himself, and now we know that that is not true, that he is alive."

Hill is a 47-year-old black male who is approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighs roughly 190 pounds, and has black hair and distinctive hazel eyes. He should be considered armed and dangerous. In addition to Petersburg, Hill has connections to Richmond, Newport News, Virginia Beach and Trinidad.

Anyone who may have had contact with Hill in North Carolina on Easter Sunday is asked to contact the U.S. Marshals at 1-877-WANTED-2 (1-877-926-8332). A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to his arrest.
