Tupac Shakur’s Aunt Becomes The First Woman On FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorist List
According to reports, a convicted American killer living in Cuba has become the first woman to be named on the FBI's "Most Wanted Terrorists" list.
In 1979, Joanne Chesimard, a member of the Black Liberation Army (BLA), escaped from the US prison where she was serving a life sentence for the murder in 1973 of a New Jersey state trooper.
The FBI and state of New Jersey are offering a $2m (£1.3m) reward for information leading to her capture, which remains unlikely given the absence of a US extradition agreement with its communist neighbour. Up to 70 fugitives from the US are believed to be sheltered by the Cuban government. Chesimard, now 65, is no longer considered a threat, but is listed on the FBI site as a domestic terrorist, only the second US citizen to make the list.
