FBI Ten Most Wanted

"particularly dangerous menace to society"

The FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives is the most wanted list maintained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the domestic intelligence and security service of the United States, which also serves as its principal federal law enforcement agency. The FBI officially announced the list on March 14, 1950, in order to increase law enforcement’s ability to capture dangerous fugitives. Those individuals named on the current list are considered the most dangerous fugitives, and include murderers, rapists and two Mexican drug lords. The FBI offers individual rewards for any information that leads to the capture of the current most wanted, which when combined now currently stands at $21,900,000.

The fugitives who currently feature on the FBI Ten Most Wanted list are those criminals considered to be “particularly dangerous menace to society,” who have escaped justice. Although there is no order in terms of most dangerous, the rewards given indicate the level of urgency in their recapture. The longest featured name on the current list, that of Robert William Fisher, a multiple murderer, was added in June 2002, one of seven men added to the list that year. The names of five men were added in 2007, two of whom, Alexis Flores and Jason Derek Brown are still currently wanted, both for murder.

Yaser Abdel Said would be added to the FBI Ten Most Wanted list some seven years after Brown, and was wanted for the murder of his own children before his capture on August 26, 2020. Fifth on the list is Bhadreshkumar Chetanbhai Patel, added along with five other men in 2017, including Alejandro Castillo, who are both wanted for murder. The seventh name listed added in April 2018 is drug lord Rafael Caro Quintero, possibly the most wanted in terms of notoriety, with a US$20,000,000 reward for his capture. The two names added in 2019, Arnoldo Jimenez and Eugene Palmer, along with Jose Rodolfo Villarreal-Hernandez who is the latest fugitive listed in 2020, are all wanted for murder and considered armed and extremely dangerous.

Robert William Fisher

Sequence Number: #475
Date of Entry: June 29, 2002
Status: Still at large (Currently a Top Ten Fugitive)
Time Listed: – days
Reward: US$100,000

Robert William Fisher is wanted for the triple homicide of his wife and two children. On the evening of April 9, 2001, a neighbour reported hearing a loud argument inside the Fisher home at 10:30 pm. At 8:42am, approximately ten hours later, the house blew up in an explosion.

Phoenix firefighters immediately responded to the explosion, successfully keeping the 20-foot-high blaze from spreading to other houses. They were forced to keep their distance from entering the residence by a series of smaller secondary explosions, believed to be caused by either rifle ammunition or paint cans.

Mary Fisher was discovered to have been shot in the back of the head, and their children Brittney and Bobby’s throats were slashed from ear to ear. Police have theorized that the murders took place between 9:30pm and 10:15pm.

At 10:43pm, Fisher was spotted on an ATM camera, where he withdrew $280. Mary’s Toyota 4Runner was in the background. It was found that the gas line from the back of the house’s furnace had been pulled.

Investigators suspect the accumulating gas was later ignited by a candle that Fisher had allegedly lit, as a sort of delayed fuse would have given him an approximate ten-hour head start in his successful attempt to evade law enforcement.

Robert William Fisher

Fisher’s pre-planned decision to rig the house to explode is believed to have been an attempt to conceal evidence of his crimes and possibly to fool police into believing that he had died in the incident. The burned bodies of his wife and two children were found lying in bed in the burned-out remains, and were identified as 38-year-old Mary, 12-year-old Brittney, and Bobby aged 10.

Investigators have theorized that the motive for Fisher’s murder of his family resulted from him feeling threatened by Mary’s intent to divorce him, and he did not want Brittney and Bobby to go through what he did as a child.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, on April 13, 1961, Fisher is a white male of American nationality, described as having brown hair, blue eyes, light complexion, 6’0″ in height, medium build and 190 pounds in weight. He has surgical scars on his lower back. He is physically fit and is an avid outdoorsman, hunter, and fisherman. He may walk with an exaggerated erect posture and his chest pushed out due to a lower back injury.

Fisher is known to chew tobacco heavily. He has ties to New Mexico and Florida. Added to the FBI Ten Most Wanted list on June 29, 2002, there is a US$100,000 reward for information leading to his arrest, and Fisher should be considered armed and extremely dangerous. Fisher is believed to be in possession of several weapons, including a high-powered rifle. The field office investigating this fugitive is located in Phoenix, Arizona.

She had been sexually assaulted, strangled and wrapped in a trash bag. During the summer of that year, an itinerant homeless drifter known as “Carlos” or “Carlo” had been given shelter, clothing and work as a handyman by Hunting Park, Philadelphia, resident Jorge Contreras.

Police also found a T-shirt bearing a distinct political logo near Iriana’s body with her blood on it. When police questioned Contreras about the shirt, he recognized it as one of the articles of clothing he had lent to “Carlos,” who had not been seen in the area since the girl was reported missing.

An illegal immigrant in the US, Alexis Flores was previously arrested for shoplifting in Arizona in 2002. Two years later, police came to Flores’ residence in response to a noise complaint.

After giving fraudulent identity documents to police, he was arrested for possession of a forgery device, a felony in Arizona. When he was arrested, Flores presented a welcoming demeanour, was friendly, and cooperated with the Police during questioning.

Upon entering his apartment for further investigation, officers noticed pornography spread out across the floors. Flores told immigration officials that he had lived in Schaumburg, Illinois, prior to living in Phoenix.

He was incarcerated for 60 days and deported to Honduras after his release in June 2005. In 2006, Flores’ DNA sample taken in Arizona was added to the Combined DNA Index System, and in March 2007, this was positively matched to the DNA found at the crime scene in the DeJesus murder case in Philadelphia. Investigators have now determined that “Carlos” and Flores are the same person.

Jason Derek Brown is suspected of the murder of Robert Keith Palomares, a 24-year-old armoured car guard, carrying the weekend deposits outside the AMC theatre at 4915 E. Ray Road in Phoenix. On November 29, 2004, at approximately 10 a.m., a hooded gunman ambushed and shot Palomares with a .45-caliber semiautomatic Glock, with five out of six bullets fired striking Palomares in the head.

Initially eye-witnesses described the shooter as being anywhere from 25 to 30 years old and Hispanic. However, authorities recovered the bicycle and lifted fingerprints that soon linked Brown to the crime.

His fingerprints had been submitted to state and federal authorities by Brown when he passed a background check after taking a firearms instruction course at Totally Awesome Guns & Range in Salt Lake City.

At that time he was living in an Ahwatukee, Arizona, hotel near an AMC movie theatre, and was captured on surveillance tape having a conversation with another man in the hotel lobby. Police consider this man to be a possible accomplice or witness, however, his identity remains unknown.
