One Million Dollar Reward For Whereabouts of Costa Rican on FBI's Most Wanted

Costa Rican Nazira Maria Cross, called the "black widow" is  on the FBI most wanted list in the United States. Cross is wanted for allegedly murdering her former husband at one of his residences located in rural Plumas County, California, on July 31, 2008.

The couple lived in the residence approximately 100 kilometres northeast of Reno, Nevada. After allegedly poisoning him, and while he was in a near-death condition, Cross is thought to have driven him to Nevada. After he died, Cross allegedly buried his body on his ranch in Lovelock, Nevada. She is also alleged to have then run over the grave site repeatedly with her car.

On March 25, 2009, a criminal complaint was signed and filed in the Superior Court of California, County of Plumas, charging Cross with one count of murder, and a state warrant was issued for her arrest. On May 14, 2009, a criminal complaint was filed in the Eastern District of California, Sacramento, California, charging Cross with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, and a federal arrest warrant was issued.

Mike Cross - a successful businessman, owner of Kietzke Auto Sales in Reno and Lovelock Motors - discovered that his wife had embezzled thousands of dollars from their businesses.  Besides being charged with murder, it is also for fraud.

Nazira Cross had asked neighbors in Chilcoot help get Michael Cross into her car so she could take him to a Reno hospital. She told them he was suffering from a medical problem. When they did not hear back from him and learned he was never admitted to a hospital, neighbors called police.

Reno police found Nazira Cross at her ex-husband’s home on Tacoma Way in Reno. They said her bags were packed, left by the front door. She told them he died suddenly and she had buried him.

The couple had been married for about eight years before they divorced in January 2008. They had met in Costa Rica when Michael Cross was on vacation.

The FBI says Cross SHOULD BE CONSIDERED ARMED AND DANGEROUS AND AN ESCAPE RISK. If you have any information concerning this person, please contact your local FBI office or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate.
