Octaviano Juarez-Corro Added to the FBI’s List of Ten Most Wanted Fugitives
Reward of Up to $100,000 Offered
FBI Special Agent in Charge (SAC) of the Milwaukee Field Office Robert E. Hughes and Jeffrey B. Norman, acting chief of the Milwaukee Police Department (MPD), announced the addition of a suspect wanted for double homicides and multiple attempted homicides in Milwaukee to the FBI’s list of Ten Most Wanted Fugitives today. Fugitive Octaviano Juarez-Corro marks the 525th addition to the Top Ten list, which has been in existence since 1950. On May 29, 2006, Juarez-Corro allegedly shot and killed two individuals and wounded three others at a large holiday picnic in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Authorities allege that Juarez-Corro entered South Shore Park on the banks of Lake Michigan, where hundreds of people were gathered for a Memorial Day picnic, including many families with children—among them Juarez-Corro’s estranged wife and their 3-year-old daughter. Juarez-Corro, who was an uninvited guest, caused a commotion and demanded to see his daughter. His wife informed him that he was not allowed to see his daughter that day and demanded that he leave. Juarez-Corro then became agitated and shortly thereafter produced a handgun from his waistband and shot at his estranged wife, as well as her family and friends. In total five people were shot, two of which were fatally wounded.
Juarez-Corro left the park after the shooting, he remains at large and should be considered armed and dangerous.
