In an attempt to apprehend a Chicago man who allegedly murdered his wife mere hours after their wedding over a decade ago, the FBI has increased the reward money by over two-fold.
According to investigators, Arnoldo Jimenez, who is currently 41 years old, allegedly committed a fatal stabbing of his wife within 24 hours of their wedding in 2012. Authorities have reported that 26-year-old Estrella Carrera, the wife of the individual in question, was discovered deceased in the bathtub of her residence. She was still wearing the dress she had donned during her wedding reception.
On Thursday, the FBI made an announcement that it will be raising the reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of Jimenez, who is currently one of the bureau’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives. The reward has been increased from $100,000 to $250,000. According to sources, there is a belief that he may have escaped to Durango, Mexico.
According to federal authorities, Jimenez and Carrera tied the knot at Chicago’s city hall on May 11, 2012, and subsequently marked the occasion with a gathering of loved ones. According to Burbank police and the FBI, it is believed that an argument ensued between the newlyweds while they were on their way home in the early morning hours of May 12, 2012, in Jimenez’s black Maserati.
According to Special Agent Steve Barnard, it is believed that she was stabbed inside the vehicle and subsequently dragged back into the apartment where she was left bleeding in the bathtub.
According to officials, Carrera’s family grew worried after she failed to arrive to collect her two children, a 2-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter. The body of Carrera was found the following day during a wellness check.
In 2019, Jimenez was included in the roster of the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives.
According to reports, the individual in question is said to stand at 6 feet in height and weigh between 200 and 225 pounds. They are described as having black hair and brown eyes. According to the FBI, the black Maserati is no longer in his possession.
According to Barnard, he has a criminal past and a history of violence. The statement made by the speaker is that they aim to bring the individual in question to justice.
