The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the location and arrest of fugitive Matthew Dion.

Dion, 38, is wanted by police in Manchester, New Hampshire on an outstanding arrest warrant for possession of child pornography, and is also wanted for questioning related to the arson fire and homicides of his parents.

He was last known to live in Manchester, and his whereabouts have been unknown since March 24, the day an arson fire destroyed his family's home on Mooresville Road. Dion's parents, Robert and Constance Dion, were found dead inside the home after the fire was extinguished, and the cause of death was later determined to be homicide.

During the crime scene investigation conducted by Manchester Police, some materials belonging to Matthew Dion were discovered and determined to be child pornography, which led to the arrest warrant being issued.

When Dion disappeared after the fire, he was reportedly driving a 2009, white, 4-door Nissan Altima with New Hampshire license plate number 341-0587. U.S. Marshals said it is possible that he has shaved his facial hair or changed his physical appearance in other ways in an effort to conceal his identity. 

Anyone who encounters Dion is reminded that they should not attempt to apprehend him, but report any information to the U.S. Marshals Service or their local police. The U.S. Marshals in New Hampshire can be reached at (603) 225-1632.
