FBI-Top-10-Fugitives

Click here for individuals descriptions of each fugitive listed.

On March 13, 2013, the FBI updated its list of “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” by adding the name Edwin Rivera Gracias – seen here, bottom row, 3rd from left.

According to the FBI’s website, the list is a publicity program designed to publicize particularly dangerous fugitives who might not otherwise merit nationwide attention, according to the FBI’s website.

The program was founded on March 14, 1950, when a reporter asked late FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover for the names and descriptions of the “toughest guys” the Bureau would like to capture. The resulting article generated so much publicity and had so much appeal that Hoover implemented the top ten program.

Since its inception, 497 fugitives have been on the top ten list. Among those listed, the FBI says that 466 have been apprehended or located, including 154 fugitives who were captured or located as a result of citizen cooperation.

The current top ten list is maintained on the FBI website and relies on the assistance of citizens and the media. A reward of up to $100,000 is offered by the FBI for information which leads directly to the arrest of a Top Ten fugitive. Members in the Top Ten list are not ranked.

His own wanted poster: Rodney Knight Jr not only broke into a house and stole a laptop, but then posted a picture of himself on its owner's Facebook page

He didn’t exactly stand much chance of getting away with it.

In December 2010, 19-year-old Rodney Knight Jr (Pictured above) broke into the home of  Washington Post
journalist Marc Fisher and stole his 15-year-old son’s laptop computer, $400, a
winter coat and another laptop.

Except to rub salt in the wound, as well as stealing the family’s property,
Knight also decided to taunt them with his very own calling card.

At the time, Mr Fisher described how the burglar broke into his family’s
Washington D.C. home and kicked through the basement door while they were
out.

Mr Fisher wrote: ‘He opened my son’s computer, took a photo of himself sneering
as he pointed to the cash lifted from my son’s desk, and then went on my son’s
Facebook account and posted the picture for 400 teenagers to see.

‘In the picture, the man is wearing my new winter coat, the one that was stolen
right out of the Macy’s box it had just arrived in.’

Although Knight put the hood up on the brand-new coat, the full-frontal picture still clearly showed his face.

Mr Fisher said one police officer told him: ‘I’ve seen a lot, but this is the most stupid criminal I’ve ever seen.’

But Mr Fisher said the worst loss was not the property, but a document his son had been working on for years.

He wrote: ‘On my son’s computer, but never backed up, was one of the greatest documents ever, something he would have cherished all his life. ‘He had meticulously kept a running list of every movie he had ever seen, hundreds and hundreds, with his comments on each.’

Despite Knight virtually designing his own wanted poster, it still took police almost a month to track him down. He was arrested on January 2nd, 2011 when officers found him in a Washington alleyway clutching his waistband.
