WASHINGTON, April 10. – The FBI announced today that it added to its list of 10 most wanted fugitives Eric Justin Toth, a former professor accused of possessing and producing child pornography, which will occupy one of the sites that list after the death of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and the capture of James “Whitey” Bulger.
The Federal Investigation Agency of the United States (FBI) offered a reward of $ 100,000 for information leading to the whereabouts of Toth, who also uses the name David Busseone and is missing since 2008.
The investigation began in June 2008 after they met some pornographic images on a video camera he had used in the private school where she worked.
Since he fled the FBI believes he has traveled to Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Minnesota and also may have lived in Arizona in 2009.
The FBI warns that Toth is a well-educated person with ability to integrate in different socioeconomic classes and their experience as graduate education could seek jobs where they could be in contact with children.
It is also described as an “expert” in computer and Internet use, so it “could be offered online as a tutor or as a caregiver of children.”
The top ten most wanted, which is distributed at police stations and public places across the country, has been a useful tool, according to the body itself, to capture escaped criminals, some for decades.
Barely a month after he was arrested the robber James “Whitey” Bulger, 81, one of the last old-fashioned gangster whose criminal record, including 19 counts of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, extortion, drug trafficking and money laundering, even inspired a Hollywood movie.
When the FBI arrested one of these fugitives Criminal Investigations Division invites offices around the country to refer cases that they believe can be solved with the cooperation of citizens.
According to the FBI since the list was created in 1950, 494 fugitives have gone through that list, of which 153 have been arrested with the help of the public.
