The Australian Federal Police (AFP) is seeking information on behalf of UK authorities into the whereabouts of an international fugitive from the UK who police believe may be in Australia, or has previously visited Perth in Western Australia.

Kevin Parle is a 35-year-old British national, wanted by the Merseyside Police Department in connection with two murders committed in Liverpool, England in 2004 and 2005.

Parle is Caucasian and distinctive in appearance at approximately 195-200cm tall with ginger or red hair and blue eyes. He also has a small scar on the left side of his head.

Parle often goes by the nickname ‘Hemp’ and at one time was suspected to be in Spain where he is currently listed as one of Spain’s most wanted fugitives.

Members of the public should not approach Parle if they believe they have had contact with him, or are aware of his location as he is considered dangerous.

Any information should be provided immediately to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
