Chicago's Most Wanted: Arnoldo Jimenez

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

This is a case that could be solved by someone on a vacation. At least that's what the FBI is hoping as they once again seek the public's help in tracking down Arnoldo Jimenez. FBI agents say perhaps someone vacationing in Mexico at some point might see Arnoldo Jimenez, or hear something about his whereabouts while traveling, and provide us the tip needed to take him into custody.

This case was originally featured on Chicago's Most Wanted last year. Agents are still seeking leads.

Jimenez and his wife Estrella Carrerra got married in Chicago at City Hall on May 11, 2012 and things were apparently fine in the hours that followed. The couple had dinner with friends and rented a party limousine to celebrate. They were last seen around 4 a.m. Saturday the May 12.

The next day Carrera was found dead in her bathtub. She was still wearing the cocktail dress she got married in.

Agents say interviews with relatives revealed that Jimenez told his sister that the night she was last seen, he and Carrera had gotten into a bad fight and that he had left her bleeding. He also indicated that if police asked where he was, the sister was to say that he had gone to Mexico.

Investigators believe Jimenez has fled the area and may be hiding out in the area around Durango, Mexico, which is why they are renewing an appeal to your viewers. They know that many people from the Chicago-area may be traveling to Mexico in the weeks ahead and are hoping that anyone who has information about Jimenez will let them know.

The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of Jimenez.

Based on cell phone records they were able to track his movements on May 12 and May 13 2012, immediately after the murder. Those records indicate that Jimenez traveled south, through Memphis and down to Houston. Agents believe he then crossed into Mexico, which is where his parents live. He still owns property in Texas and has relatives in North Carolina and has connections in the Chicago-area. Agents hope someone knows where he is currently hiding and let them know.

Here is the FBI's description of Arnoldo Jimenez:


  • Hispanic male
  • 31-years-old
  • 6' 0'' tall, 220 lbs.
  • He has been known to use the alias Arnoldo Jimenez Rochel.
  • He was last seen driving a black 2006 Maserati.
  • He is considered armed and dangerous, if you see him you are asked to call police.
