Will Escaped Cop Killer Finally Be Brought Back From Cuba?
President Obama's decision to normalize relations with Cuba has raised questions about the 70 or so American fugitives believed to be hiding out in Cuba.
That includes cop killer Joanne Chesimard, who has been hiding in plain sight in Cuba after she escaped from a U.S. prison in 1979.
She had been convicted six years prior in the murder of a New Jersey state trooper.
Chesimard, a member of the radical Black Liberation Army, shot and killed Werner Foerster execution-style on May 2, 1973, after she and two others were pulled over for a routine traffic stop
In 2013, the FBI designated Chesimard a terrorist and placed a $2 million bounty on her head. The reward money remains active, Rick Leventhal reported today on "America's Newsroom."
The New Jersey State Police say they will never give up on bringing Chesimard to justice.
Leventhal said there has been internal frustration among officials in New Jersey because they were not consulted before yesterday's announcement by the White House.
Colonel Robert Fuentes, superintendent of the state police, said he sees the new diplomatic relationship with Cuba as a new opportunity to finally bring Chesimard back to prison.
