NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Two people with over a dozen outstanding warrants were added to Nashville’s “Top 10 Most Wanted” list this week.

Angel Gonzalez, 37, who was wanted for two counts of rape of a child and two counts of aggravated sexual battery to a victim under 13, was taken into custody on Feb. 8 — making him the 16th person on Nashville’s “Most Wanted” list to be arrested since mid-October.
Metro police also recently arrested a woman with 16 outstanding warrants, mostly related to alleged shoplifting incidents, after she was found hiding in the bathtub of a hotel room with a loaded gun nearby.
The two men added to the list this week collectively have 41 outstanding warrants. Below is a full list of the suspects who made Nashville’s “Top 10 Most Wanted” list the week of Feb. 22.

At number one, Jamion Wynn, 28, is considered this week’s “Top Most Wanted” fugitive, according to the MNPD. This is the second week in a row he has appeared at the top of the list.
Wynn is wanted on an outstanding warrant for first-degree murder dating back to February 2022, as well as a warrant for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

2. Jeffrey Lamont Thorpe
Jeffery Thorpe, 24, first appeared on Nashville’s “Top 10 Most Wanted” list on Oct. 26, 2022.
Thorpe is wanted for questioning in the death of his 2-year-old son, who police said was shot and killed on Halloween night in 2021.
The child’s mother told authorities Thorpe was visiting them at an apartment in East Nashville and placed a gun on a bed. The 2-year-old then reportedly picked up the gun and fired it, striking himself in the head.
Thorpe drove the child and his mother to TriStar Skyline Medical Center, where he dropped them off and did not return, according to officials.
The 2-year-old was moved to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he was listed in extremely critical condition. Police said he passed away a few days later.
Thorpe also has several other outstanding warrants. According to the MNPD, he is wanted for reckless homicide, four counts of aggravated assault, child neglect, two counts of probation violation, resisting arrest, evading arrest, failure to appear, theft and criminal trespassing.
One of the aggravated assault charges stems from an argument last June, during which time authorities said Thorpe pointed a handgun at a car containing the 2-year-old and his mother.
According to police, Thorpe was last seen in East Nashville.
3. Adrian Abernathy
Adrian Abernathy, 29, is believed to have been behind the wheel of a stolen car in a November 2022 crash on the Rosa L. Parks Boulevard exit ramp from I-65 North that killed Todd Bryant, 29, of Antioch.
He has outstanding warrants for vehicular homicide, three counts of aggravated assault, felon in possession of a weapon, theft of a motor vehicle, theft of a firearm, reckless endangerment and making a false report.
According to police, Abernathy initially said he was a backseat passenger in the stolen Lincoln Navigator SUV. However, over the course of the investigation, officers determined the seating positions were reversed and Abernathy was the one driving the car.
Authorities said he was traveling over 100 mph shortly before the crash. His last location is unknown.

A witness reported hearing an argument prior to several gunshots, according to police. The MNPD obtained an arrest warrant charging Johnson with criminal homicide shortly after the incident.
