“Given the facts, we had and some of the tips, and the likelihood that maybe additional efforts from the public might help us locate him, and its why he made the list.”

Palmer is facing a murder charge, for allegedly shooting and killing his 39-year daughter-in-law Tammy Palmer outside her home in Haverstraw back in 2012.

Tammy Palmer had issued a restraining order against her husband John Palmer, Eugene’s son.

Eugene Palmer has evaded police since the murder.

it’s believed he initially fled to nearby Harriman State Park.

Chief Peter Murphy, Haverstraw Police:

“We did an exhaustive search over a long period of time of that Parkland and we think that if he was still alive up there we would have located him.

Authorities believe a now 80-year-old Palmer is still alive and maybe hiding somewhere upstate New York or in Florida where he has relatives.

Michelle Brown, Reporting/standup bridge:

“Eugene Palmer is now the 523rd person added to the FBI’s ten most wanted list. FBI officials say once a person is added to that the list, they have a 93 percent chance of catching the fugitive.”

To encourage the public’s help in its pursuit of palmer, the FBI is offering a reward of up to 100-thousand dollars leading to his arrest and conviction.

William Sweeney, FBI:

“Eugene Palmer might be thinking we have given up on finding him. But he’d be wise to think again.”
