A man wanted for the murder of his estranged wife in Calcasieu Parish has been added to the FBI's Most Wanted fugitive list. Forty-seven-year-old Joe Matthew Constance has not been seen since he shot and killed Mary Duhon on June 5th, 2011. Calcasieu Sheriff Tony Mancuso says they hope the FBI's help can bring Constance to justice.
"It's been very difficult for us and for our federal partner's to step up to the plate and go kind of above and beyond really helps us out."
Mancuso says now that the FBI is involved, they receive better tips on whether he is outside the country or in a different state. He says there is a reward for information leading to Constance's arrest.
"The FBI has put up a $20,000 reward so again hopefully that will entice someone to come forward and let us know where he is."
Mancuso says Constance forced himself into Duhon's home and demanded the residents inside tell him where his ex-wife was, he found her in another area of the residence and shot her. He says Constance was charged with first degree murder, aggravated assault and aggravated burglary the day he killed Duhon.
"Just a cold blooded killer. He is a convicted fellon. He's not unfamiliar to law enforcement. So this just kind of was the line that you don't cross and he did and he committed murder."
