Alleged bride killer, Arnoldo Jimenez, remains elusive to police and is probably hiding out in Mexico so the FBI has announced a $10,000 rewards in hopes of catching him.

The 30-year-old newlywed is thought to have stabbed his new wife, Estrella Carrera, hours after they were wed in Burbank, Illinois on May 11th.  The 26-year-old bride and mother of two was still wearing her wedding dress when she was found in her dry bathtub.

The groom had been involved with Carrera for approximately three years before they decided to get married impromptu.  According to family members it was a volatile relationship and one that did not meet the approval of various members of Carrera’s close-knit Hispanic family.

Jimenez is the father of the couple’s two-year-old son and Carrera is also the mother of a 9-year-old daughter.  Both children are in the care of Carrera’s family

Jimenez made his escape in a 2006 Maserati and thought to have crossed the border into Santiago Papsquiaro in Durango, Mexico, where he is thought to have family.
