New York Man Now One of FBI’s Most Wanted for 2024
The FBI has listed a New York man as one of its most wanted fugitives for 2024 after he is allegedly responsible for the violent attack that killed his wife and two children last year. John Doe, 45, is now listed as one of the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives by the FBI, which also announced on Monday that it is offering a reward of up to $100,000 for information that leads to his capture.
The FBI claims that on December 23, 2023, Doe fatally murdered his 43-year-old wife and their 9- and 12-year-old children in their Queens, New York, home. He then drove off in a stolen automobile, leaving a message that said, “I did it for us,” and a bloodied knife in his wake. I cherish you. Please pardon me.
The FBI stated that Doe was being investigated for fraud and embezzlement at his place of employment, a financial firm, and that he had a history of domestic abuse and mental health problems. In addition, the FBI claimed that Doe was connected to other places, including Texas, Florida, and California, and that he might have used aliases or altered his appearance to avoid being discovered.
The U.S. Marshals Service, local law enforcement, the public, and the FBI have all joined forces in the FBI’s nationwide manhunt for Doe. Along with recordings and pictures of Doe, the FBI has also produced a sketch of his potential current appearance. Additionally, the FBI has set up a website, www.fbi.gov/wanted/johndoe, where anybody may report sightings of Doe or contribute tips.
The FBI issued a warning, stating that Doe is thought to be armed and extremely dangerous, and that anyone who comes across him should immediately phone the nearest FBI office or 911 instead of approaching him. Additionally, the FBI asked anyone with knowledge regarding Doe’s whereabouts or activities to get in touch with them by phone at 1-800-CALL-FBI or online at tips.fbi.gov.
The FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, which was created in 1950 to highlight the nation’s most dangerous and elusive offenders, has welcomed John Doe as its newest member. Some of the most infamous figures in American history, including Ted Bundy, Osama bin Laden, and James Earl Ray, have been listed on the list. Since the list’s creation, 524 fugitives have been added, and 490 of them have been apprehended or found, with 162 of those successes coming from public assistance, according to the FBI.
By including Doe on the list, the FBI believes that it will be easier to locate him and prosecute him. By making his case public, the FBI also seeks to increase awareness of domestic abuse and its terrible effects. According to the FBI, it is dedicated to safeguarding victims and survivors of domestic abuse and provides them with a range of services and support options.
Additionally, the FBI advised anybody experiencing or witnessing domestic abuse to get assistance from their local law enforcement agency or other agencies, such as the National Domestic Violence Hotline, which can be reached online at www.thehotline.org or by calling 1-800-799-SAFE.
