FBI Announce $2 Million Ransom On First ‘Wanted’ Female, A convicted killer and former Black Liberation Army member who fled to Cuba became the first woman to be put on the FBI’s most wanted terrorists list on Thursday (May 2), and the reward for her capture was doubled to $2 million.
Joanne Chesimard, 65, still lives in Cuba following her escape from a New Jersey prison in 1979, the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation said on the 40th anniversary of the crime.
While there is no new threat from Chesimard, she is considered a “domestic terrorist,” the agency said.
“While living openly and freely in Cuba she continues to maintain and promote her terrorist ideology,” said Aaron Ford, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Newark, New Jersey, field office, at a news conference.
Chesimard, now known as Assata Shakur, was convicted in 1977 of the murder of Trooper Werner Foerster on May 2, 1973.
“Today, on the anniversary of Trooper Werner Foerster’s death, we want the public to know that we will not rest until this fugitive is brought to justice,” Ford said.
