JUPITER, FL (WFLX) - The reward increases to $25,000 to find Paul Michael Merhige. He's accused of gunning down four familiy members, including a 6-year-old girl asleep in her bed on Thanksgiving.

Police released new photos of his Getaway car. The pictures were taken in Miami the day before the murders.

U.S. Marshals put out a new profile on Merhige saying he is borderline obese, might frequent homosexual establishments, and may show signs of obsessive compulsive disorder.

Manny Puri has a long list of quirks U.S. Marshals compiled on Merhige, who's still on the run.

  • He is borderline obese
  • Might be homosexual
  • Fakes or shows signs of obsessive compulsive disorder, like frequent bathing or having a tough time making a decisions.
  • Show signs of chronic fatigue syndrome, like insomnia.

Along with his medical history, he's now a fugitive. "The whole world is trying to catch him, so he's going to be more than restless. As far as Merhige's health goes."

Marshals say he may be constipated, lethargic, have trouble sleeping, chest pain, restlessness and shortness of breath. "He might do anything. He might go to hospital or do something at home to treat it."

Marshals are pleading that everyone think about Merhige's health and state of mind, and the car he might be driving. It's described as a 2007 royal blue four-door Camry with license plate W427JT.

He's 5'8", 210 pounds, heavy built. dark hair, has a receeding hairline, and sometimes wears glasses.

The reward for this man has now been increased to $25,000.
