FBI lists former Hillsborough man as one of its most wanted

TAMPA — A man suspected of killing his wife after they moved from Hillsborough County to California has been placed on the FBI's Most Wanted list.

The bureau and San Bernardino police are seeking help in locating Edly Albert Atherley II. Atherley, a felon, is wanted for the murder of his wife in November in a San Bernardino home. The couple, who have two young daughters, moved to California about a year ago.

Her family members said earlier this month that he stabbed her in his home about a month after she had left him.

"We need justice for our daughter," Ashley's mother, Lucia Robles, said recently. "He took everything from us."

Ashley's family say Edly Atherley, 29, has ties to the Tampa Bay area, as well as Port Charlotte, Texas, California and Belize. Ashley, 28, was born in Hillsborough, grew up in Valrico and attended Bloomingdale High School.

The FBI said that when Edly Atherley was last seen Nov. 30 in California, he had a large gash that was bleeding heavily on the web of his right hand, and an abrasion to his right forearm. The agency said he is known to frequent gyms and exercise regularly. He has previously worked in the banking industry and in a warehouse distribution center.

The FBI said it was offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that leads directly to Atherley's arrest.
