A man wanted for second degree murder may be attempting to conceal his identity by wearing wigs. The U.S. Marshal’s Metro Area Fugitive Task Force is asking the public for help in finding 27-year-old Michael Sebesta.

In the video part of this story, we've including some versions produced by Channel 6 as to what Sebesta may look like wearing various disguises.

Sebesta is accused of killing his roommate January 28 at 2717 N 73rd Street. Police were called to their apartment about 8:30am that morning after shots were fired. When they arrived, they found 26-year-old Philip Burden critically wounded. He died the following day at a hospital.

Sebesta has been in and out of prison for drug dealing. He was first arrested when he was 17 for drug paraphernalia.

The Fugitive Task Force has been targeting all known contacts and hang-outs -- friends and family. The team want to make sure the fugitive has nowhere else to turn and cannot hide anymore.

It is believed that Sebesta is staying between multiple locations within the Omaha metro area. Anyone with information is asked to call police at (402) 444-7867. You can also text OPD to 274637 (CRIMES) or leave a tip at a website by clicking here.
