Police say the suspect in the stabbing death of a soccer coach in Manhattan left his brother a note before fleeing the country.
Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says Orlando Orea told his brother he's sorry.
Police found the note when they searched his brother's apartment.
They say Orea's brother is cooperating with the investigation.
Orlando Orea allegedly stabbed 25-year-old Michael Jones Sunday morning after leaving a bar on 14th Street, where police say Orea had a fight over a woman.
Police do not believe Jones was involved in that dispute.
They are now looking for Orea in Mexico and hope to have him caught and extradited.
"We know the village that he's from in Mexico," Kelly said. "Hopefully, we'll be able to have the Mexican authorities locate him and take him into custody."
A memorial service for Jones was held Wednesday in White Plains.
Jones coached youth soccer as part of the Red Bulls organization.
