Estrella Carrera Case: Arnoldo Jimenez Wanted For Murder

by at . Comments

A manhunt is underway nationally for fugitive Arnoldo Jimenez, the man charged with the murder of his bride, Estrella Carrera, in Chicago, Ill.

The FBI issued a federal warrant for Arnoldo Jimenez, the Chicago Tribune reports.

"The warrant was issued on the fact that Jimenez will or has fled the boundaries of the State of Illinois," Burbank police said in a news release.

Carrera was stabbed to death in her bathtub last weekend, still wearing her wedding dress. Jimenez has been charged with first-degree murder.


The federal warrant reveals more clues about what happened to Carrera.

"On May 13, 2012, Jimenez spoke with his sister by telephone, telling her he and Carrera had a bad fight and he left her bleeding," according to the warrant.

A "close associate" of Jimenez also told authorities that Jimenez said "he was leaving the state of Illinois and if questioned by law enforcement, the associate should tell law enforcement he went to Mexico."

Burbank Police Capt. Joe Ford told the Tribune that authorities have received more than 300 tips regarding the case, most of which have been car sightings.

Arnoldo Jimenez was last seen driving a black Maserati sedan.

Jimenez is the father of Carrera's 2-year-old son. Estrella Carrera, the slain bride, also had a 9-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.

The AP reported earlier this week that authorities encouraged Jiminez to "turn himself in for the sake of his family and especially his children."
