Mollie Halpern: Take a hard look at this face. It’s the face of alleged murderer and FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitive Arnoldo Jimenez.

A reward of up to $100,000 is available for information leading to the arrest of Jimenez, who is wanted for murdering his 26-year-old bride less than 24 hours after marrying her.

After the wedding, Jimenez and his wife, Estrella Carrera, celebrated with family and friends into the early morning hours of May 12, 2012.

Case agent Steve Barnard says on the way home …

Steve Barnard: We believe Jimenez and his bride got into an argument in his black Maserati, where he then stabbed her multiple times.

Halpern: When Estella failed to pick up her children, then ages 2 and 8, as scheduled the next day, family asked police to check on her.

Police found Estrella’s body in the bathtub of her condominium in Burbank, Illinois—still wearing the silver sequin cocktail dress she had on during the reception festivities.

Barnard: Through investigation we learned Jimenez told a close friend that if questioned by police, tell them he fled to Mexico.

Halpern: If you have any information about this case, dial 1-800-CALL FBI. With Wanted by the FBI, I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau.
