Los Angeles: Roberry Homicide detectives are asking for assistance in the capture of Frank Shano Siganoff, 24, a white man, for the murder of Rose Marco, 57. Siganoff is pictuSiganoff_2red at the bottom right.

Police said Siganoff walked into a fortune-telling business at 5324 Sunset Blvd. on Sept. 3 of last year   and allegedly threw a lighted molotov cocktail inside. Marco, who lived and worked inside the building, was burned alive as flames engulfed the business. Investigators said the motive for the killing was related to an ongoing dispute between two families within the Hollywood Gypsy community.

Siganoff is described as having brown hair, blue eyes and stands 6 feet 3 inches tall. His face is heavily scarred with acne, authorities said. According to police, Siganoff had left the state but was last seen walking in the Hollywood area. Authorities said he details cars and works at car washes to earn money.

A warrant has been issued for his arrest. Investigators also remind the public that he is considered armed and extremely dangerous. Should anyone have information about Siganoff's whereabouts they should contact Robbery Homicide Dets. Mike Oppelt or Al Aldaz at (213) 785-2531.

*Update: Authorities said Siganoff has turned himself in at the Maricopa County Sheriff's facility in Phoenix, Ariz., Wednesday, April 30. He remains in custody in Arizona, pending his return to Los Angeles next week, police said.
