NEW YORK — The FBI has added a New York man wanted for a 2012 murder to their 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list.
Eugene Palmer, 80, should be considered armed and dangerous, the FBI said.
Palmer is accused of shooting and killing his daughter-in-law, Tammy Palmer, on September 24, 2012 in Stony Point, Rockland County.
A local warrant of arrest was initially issued for Palmer in Rockland County for murder charges. On June 10, 2013, the United States Court for the Southern District of New York also issued a federal arrest warrant for charges of unlawfully fighting to avoid prosecution.
After nearly seven years, authorities added Palmer to the fugitive list because of recent leads. Authorities did not specify, but they believe Palmer might be in Florida or upstate New York.
According to the FBI, Palmer is an experienced hunter and outdoorsman, 5-feet 10-inches, 220 pounds, with gray, balding hair and has a deformed left thumb. He is said to be a diabetic.
He also goes by Eugene K. Palmer, Eugene Kenneth Palmer, Eugene Kevin Palmer.
Authorities are asking healthcare providers to look back at patients they took care of and look at records to see if they may have taken care of Palmer.
The FBI is offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to Palmer’s arrest and conviction. Additional rewards may be offered by other law enforcement agencies.AlertMe
