In the 1950’s, the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted” list was largely reserved for bank robbers. Now, all types of outlaws are included on the list, with crimes ranging from violent to cyber to drug trafficking and money laundering. In the Bureau’s history, only 509 people have appeared on on the “Ten Most Wanted” list. Ninety percent of them have been “apprehended or located.” Needless to say, most of the list have been male culprits.
However, a 24-year-old Milwaukee woman, named Shanika S. Minor, appears on the current list. She is only the seventh fugitive from Wisconsin to appear on the list and the very first from Milwaukee. She is wanted by the feds for the murder of Tamecca Perry, a 23-year-old pregnant woman, and her unborn child. ABC 13 News Now reports:
Shanika S. Minor — who uses the alias Ida Jackson — is accused of shooting her mother’s nine-months-pregnant neighbor about one week after Minor confronted the woman with a complaint about loud music. She has no previous criminal record.
Minor first challenged the woman to a fight the night of March 5 with a semi-automatic gun in hand. She fired several shots into the air and left the scene at her mother’s request.
Hours later, about 3 a.m. March 6, Minor entered the neighbor’s home armed with a gun. Her mother again attempted to intervene, stepping between Minor and the pregnant neighbor, but was unable to de-escalate the situation before Minor reached over her mother’s shoulder and fired a round at the woman’s chest.
The authorities are offering $100,000 for information leading to Minor’s arrest. She is on the run and believed to have contacts in Missouri, Mississippi, Texas, Tennessee, Ohio, Illinois and possibly Georgia.
