His last known address is in the Dublin area. He was last seen driving a 2003 Silver Ford Escape with Illinois license plate 1008122.
Sypien is suspected of shooting John Moore, 76, in the parking lot of 3470 Fostoria Way.

Ed. Note: Sypien is listed as having an address in Saint Charles, Illinois but has apparently lived and worked in the Danville/Walnut Creek area in past years. His relationship, if any, with Mr. Moore was not immediately known though Mr. Moore was in real estate acquisition and Sypien is believed to have had a contracting/renovations business in the past.
