The FBI’s newest addition to the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list is Eric Matthew Frein, who is the lone suspect in the delay ambush of two Pennsylvania state troopers, the Huffington Post reports.

The FBI said it’s not messing around.

“When law enforcement officers are violently targeted, we take it seriously — and personally,” Edward J. Hanko, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Philadelphia Division, said Thursday in a press release.

The ambush of Alex Douglass and Byron Dickson happened at 10:50 p.m. during a shift change. Dickson was killed, and Douglass remains hospitalized.

The 31-year-old suspect was charged Tuesday with homicide of a law enforcement officer.

Authorities warned that Frein is a weapons enthusiast and survivalist.

“All of law-enforcement is committed to apprehending Frein, and we are dedicated to making sure that the danger to the public ends with his arrest,” Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan said Thursday.

Diplomat Suspected of Bludgeoning Family in 1976 Added to FBI’s ‘Ten Most Wanted Fugitives’

A diplomat accused of bludgeoning his family to death in their suburban Maryland Home in 1976 was added to the FBI’s list of “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives.”

The Associated Press reports that William Bradford “Brad” Bishop Jr., who worked for the State Department at the time, is suspected of killing his mother, wife and three sons. According to authorities, he then drove their bodies to a wooded area in North Carolina, buried them in a shallow grave and lit them on fire.

Bishop, who would be 77 years old now, is a Yale graduate fluent in five languages.

“Brad, you’ve been living with this on your conscience now for 38 years,” Montgomery County, Md., Sheriff Darren Popkin said. “I am the voice of your family who can no longer speak. The time is now to contact law enforcement.”

One of the most popular weapons against criminals, the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted” recently turned 63 years old.

The list of most-wanted fugitives has helped nab 153 most-wanted fugitives from people tipped off by pictures on the list, About.com reports.

Of the 495 people who have been on the list, 465 have been apprehended.

J. Edgar Hoover hatched the idea with reporters at the end of Word War II and published the first list on March 14, 1950, About.com wrote.

The FBI’s deputy director chooses the list of fugitives after getting recommendations from field offices, About.com reported.

The list is prioritized by length of criminal history, severity of the crimes and their potential threat to the public, About.com wrote.

FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List Launched During Card Game

The FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list originated during a card game between FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover and a reporter who was curious about the most slyest of fugitives, the LA Times reports.

In 1949, Hoover gave the reporter a list of 10 names that would appear on the front page of the Washington Daily News, leading to the arrests of nine of the 10.

The fugitives were escapees, con men, accused murders and a bank robber, chosen from a list of 5,700 fugitives on the run, the LA Times reported.

A year later, the top 10 list was born and would later include Martin Luther King’s assassin, James Earl Ray; Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden; and serial killer Ted Bundy.

It’s been more than seven months since the FBI’s two most notorious Ten Most Wanted criminals — Osama bin Laden and Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger — were eliminated as fugitives. One was killed. The other was captured.

Still, to date, the FBI has yet to replace them. So for all practical purposes, its a Top 8 list for now. Their photos remain on the FBI page. Bulger’s photo has word “Captured” draped across the bottom. Bin Laden’s photo has the word “Deceased” on it.

Paul Bresson, an FBI spokesman at headquarters, said Tuesday that “replacements are still under consideration.” Stay tuned.

 

FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List Really Just Eight Most Wanted for Now

Whitey Bulger

The FBI’s legendary Ten Most Wanted list is really only the Eight Most Wanted list these days.

Two of the the most well-known figures on the list — Osama bin Laden and Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger — are no longer wanted. Bin Laden was killed by the U.S. military in Pakistan in May and Bulger was captured by the FBI in California in June. No one has replaced them.

Their pictures remain on the list on the FBI webpage. But the word “Captured” has been added to Bulger’s photo and “Deceased” has been added to bin Laden’s.

The FBI told ticklethewire.com on  Friday that there’s “no time frame” for when the two vacancies will be filled. The process of filling the spots is a detailed one that includes FBI field offices around the country submitting recommendations that are then reviewed at headquarters and ultimately approved by FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III.

So in the meantime, it remains the FBI’s Eight Most Wanted list.

The list currently includes less well-known names like Jason Derek Brown, Robert William Fisher and Eduardo Ravelo.

Eduardo Ravelo appears to be one of the more notable fugitives.

The FBI said he is a Captain (Capo) within the Barrio Azteca organization and issues orders to the Barrio Azteca members residing in Juarez, Mexico. He also has ties to El Paso, Tex.

Authorities alleged that Ravelo and the Barrio Azteca members act as “hitmen” for the Vicente Carrillo Fuentes Drug Trafficking Organization and are responsible for numerous murders. The FBI said he may have had plastic surgery and altered his fingerprints.

Fisher is wanted on charges of killing his wife and two young children and then blowing up the house in which they all lived in Scottsdale, Az. in April of 2001.

Brown is wanted for murder and armed robbery in Phoenix, Arizona.  Authorities say Brown allegedly shot and killed an armored car guard outside a movie theater in November of 2004 and then fled with the money.
