Patel is charged with murder in the 2015 slaying of 21-year-old Palak Patel, in a back room of the shop in Hanover, Maryland. At the time of the murder, both were working the night shift at a donut shop about an hour outside Washington DC in Hanover, Maryland, owned by a relative of Patel's.

A federal arrest warrant was issued a week after Palak'sdeath as Bhadreshkumar was charged with unlawful flight toavoid prosecution.Investigators said he was last seen taking a hotel shuttle to Newark Penn Station in New Jersey on April 13, 2015around 10 AM.

According to the FBI investigators, Palak wanted to return to India as their visas had expired, but her husband was against the idea.

The FBI has added a 26-year-old Indian national on its top 10 "Most Wanted List" and offered up to Dollars 100,000 reward for any information leading to his arrest, two years after he allegedly killed his wife inside a Dunkin Donuts restaurant and subsequently went missing. The accused took a cab to a hotel in New Jersey near Newark Liberty International Airport.

"Or he could have traveled through Canada back to India", said Special Agent Jonathan Shaffer, who is investigating the case from the Federal Bureau of Investigation s Baltimore Division.

The couple worked together at the store, and the video captures them in the back before disappearing behind baking racks just before midnight.

After the murder, a customer who entered the shop realized something was wrong when no one came to take his order.

Anne Arundel County Police Detective Kelly Harding says the murder was caught on surveillance. He alerted County Police Department officer Anne Arundel, who then found Palak Patel's body. "It was horrific what had been done to this young woman", Shaffer said. The FBI has also termed the case of murder as an act of domestic violence. "We nearly always are able to find the suspects in these cases, and they are usually full of remorse, asking 'What have I done?' They are not taking a taxi cab and crossing state lines to escape".

The FBI suspects Patel could be with relatives in the U.S. or may have fled to Canada to make his way back to India. "Or he could have travelled through Canada back to India". "Whether they do it for the right reasons or just for the money doesn't really matter".

If you have information regarding Patel-who should be considered armed and dangerous-contact your local FBI office or the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate, or on the website.
