NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — A Rockland county man accused of murdering his daughter-in-law was added to the FBI's 10 Most Wanted fugitives list Wednesday, agency officials announced.

Eugene Palmer, 80,  allegedly shot his 39-year-old daughter-in-law Tammy Palmer three times with a shotgun as she walked up her driveway, soon after putting her two kids on the bus to school.

"Eugene Palmer might be thinking we've given up on finding him, but he'd be wise to think again. This is as good a time as any to remind him that the team up here plays by a different set of rules. In our eyes, the victim always comes first, and this team will never give up until justice is served," said William F. Sweeney, assistant director-in-charge of the FBI's New York office at the press conference Wednesday.

The alleged incident took place on Stepember, 24 2012 in Stony Point.

Authorities believe Palmer fled into Harriman State Park after the incident, and one of his trucks was found there.

A federal warrant charging Palmer with unlawful flight was issued in June 2013.

Palmer was charged with second degree murder.

Authorities say that Palmer's relationship with his daughter became troubled as the marriage between her and his son began to fall apart.

They also say Palmer is well-trained in wildnerness survival.

Palmer is about 5'10" and 220 pounds and has brown eyes, is balding with gray hair, and has a deformed left thumb.

The FBI is offering a up to $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Palmer.
