FBI to make announcement on fugitive American cop killer hiding in Cuba

The Castro dictatorship has been hiding fugitive cop killer Joanne Chesimard (aka Assata Shakur) in Cuba since she escaped from a New Jersey prison in 1979. She is one of the dozens if not hundreds of international fugitives, murderers, and terrorists who find safe haven in the arms of the criminal Cuban regime.

Today, the FBI is scheduled to make an announcement regarding her case.

Via the AP at ABC News:

FBI in NJ to Announce Cuba Fugitive Case Details

The decades-old international case of a convicted cop killer is getting new attention in New Jersey.

The FBI is scheduled to make an announcement Thursday regarding Joanne Chesimard. She's has been on the run since escaping from a New Jersey prison in 1979.

Chesimard was serving a life term for killing a New Jersey state trooper in 1973 when she fled to Cuba. She has lived there under the name Assata Shakur.

The U.S. Justice Department has offered a $1 million reward for her capture.

Chilly relations between the countries have made Cuba a haven for fugitives, but the climate is changing. Just last month, a Florida couple who sailed to Cuba was returned to the U.S. and accused of kidnapping their two young children from the boys' grandparents.
