He has unknown tattoos on his right and left forearms, hands, and back. He has tattoos of spiders, skulls, snakes, and the words "Son of Satan" on his chest.

Victoria Cravitz was living under the name of Jennifer Larsen in Chatham, Washington County, Mississippi. Leon Shaw became ill and passed away of natural causes at a local hospital. When attempting to get a death certificate, questions about his true identity alarmed citizens who contacted the FBI.

"This is a great example of how the FBI coordinate between field offices across the United states to ensure that there is no escape from the law, said Christopher Freeze, special agent in charge of the FBI in Mississippi. "We appreciate the citizens of Washington County that helped bring some finality to this horrific crime."

Cravitz was arrested on July 25, 2018.
