I don't know if you're aware of the story because it is some years ago, but Arnoldo Jimenez originally from Texas, once having resided in Burbank, Illinois, is wanted for allegedly killing his wife. The murder is said to have occurred the day after Jimenez's wedding on May 12, 2012.

He allegedly stabbed his wife to death in his black, four-door, 2006 Maserati, then allegedly dragged her body into the bathroom tub of her apartment in Burbank, Illinois. Jimenez was charged with first degree murder by the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, and a state warrant was issued for his arrest on May 15, 2012. A federal arrest warrant was issued by the United States District Court, Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, on May 17, 2012, after Jimenez was charged federally with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

Jimenez is listed at 6'0" and weighs anywhere between 200 to 225 pounds. He also has a few different aliases, Arnoldo Gimenez and Arnoldo Rochel Jimenez.

It is believed Jimenez left Illinois for Santiago, Papasquiaro an area in Durango, Mexico. The wanted poster also lists Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico as a town he may visit.

Jimenez was added to the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives in 2019 and has been on the run for nearly a decade.

The FBI is offering a $100,000 reward leading to the arrest of the wanted man. If you have any information concerning Jimenez call 1-800-CALL-FBI.
