The Crimes That Earned 10 Women Spots on FBI's Most Wanted List
A Wisconsin woman accused of fatally shooting her mother’s pregnant neighbor only days before the expectant mom was to give birth became the 10th woman ever to be included to the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted Fugitive List.
But on Friday, just days after Shanika Minor, 24, was added to the list, the FBI announced that she had been captured.
In March, she allegedly fired a bullet into the chest of nine-months-pregnant Tamecca Perry, who died in front of her two children for "disrespecting" Minor, authorities said.
After more than three months on the run, Minor joined the deadly club of female fugitives considered dangerous enough to be added to the FBI’s list.
Minor was the 509th person to be added to the list since its inception in 1950, but only nine women were included on the list before her. They were:
Delgado allegedly orchestrated the murder of Dallas-based dentist Dr. Kendra Hatcher in September, after the victim began dating the alleged murder-for-hire mastermind’s ex-boyfriend, authorities said. Jealous of the new coupling, Delgado allegedly hired two co-conspirators for the murder. She was arrested in Mexico on April 8.
Henderson, an alleged high-ranking Missouri gang member and murder suspect, was captured on the same day she was added to the Top 10 List on March 31, 2007. Henderson shot and killed DeAndre Parker at a gas station in Kansas City, but claimed the victim was trying to run her over with his car. She was found guilty of voluntary manslaughter and armed criminal action.
Donna Jean Willmott
Willmott, along with her partner, Claude Daniel Mark, allegedly planned to blow up a federal Kansas prison to help a Puerto Rican nationalist escape, CBS reported. The pair made the list in 1987, the first man-and-woman-team to earn a spot, but turned themselves in on December 6, 1994, the FBI said.
Katherine Ann Power and Susan Edith Saxe
The college roommates took part in a bank robbery to help fund the Black Panthers’ 1970 Vietnam War protest. One of the ex-cons the women robbed the bank with killed a Boston police officer during the incident. The women went on the lam and were added to the list two months later. Five years would pass before Saxe was arrested. Power had been removed from the list when it was felt that she no longer fit the Top Ten criteria when she surrendered to authorities in Oregon in 1993, the FBI said.
Bernardine Rae Dohrn
Dohrn made the list in 1970 for her connection with Weather Underground, a group that violently protested government activity and the Vietnam War. She was never caught by the FBI while she was on the list because of a federal judge’s dismissal of the case against her and her fellow protestors, but served less than a year in jail after turning herself in in 1980 for radical activities, according to CBS.
Angela Yvonne Davis
The prominent author, scholar and activist was wanted after guns she allegedly purchased were used in an armed escape attempt in 1970. The former UCLA philosophy instructor was arrested later that year in a New York hotel. Davis was acquitted of charges against her.
Marie Dean Arrington
Arrington was facing charges for the murder of a legal secretary when she escaped custody at a Florida facility. She was placed on the list in 1969 and apprehended in 1971, the FBI said.
The first woman to appear on the Ten Most Wanted Fugitive List, Eisemann-Schier was added in 1968 for helping to kidnap a wealthy real estate developer’s daughter. She and Gary Steven Krist abducted Barbara Mackle from a Georgia motel room and buried her in a shallow grave in a coffin that was outfitted with ventilation tubes, a fan and food, the FBI said. The pair demanded $5,000,000 from Mackle’s father, but Mackle was found alive and her kidnappers were captured.
