CBS12 Investigates is looking into just who is Marcus Steward.

Court records reviewed show Steward was aware of a warrant seeking his DNA in connection with the Jupiter triple murder.

Sheriff’s deputies wrote in a report that Steward evaded law enforcement's attempts to execute the DNA search warrant.

Deputies finally tracked him down last April, two months after the murders. He took off running, but was caught a short time later.

A check with the Florida Department of Corrections shows Steward spent more than 5-years behind bars for a series of crimes including robbery and battery.

Steward's’ girlfriend declined to comment, only telling CBS12 that Steward’s mother passed away two days ago.
