These are the fugitives on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list – and how they got there

Bishop is wanted for allegedly beating his wife, mother, and three sons (aged 5, 10, and 13) to death in 1976 in Maryland. The FBI says he then brought their bodies to North Carolina, where he buried them in a shallow grave and lit them on fire.

Bishop graduated from Yale University and has his master’s degree in Italian from Middlebury College in Vermont. He also had extensive camping experience in Africa, and enjoyed canoeing, fishing, swimming, jogging, tennis, skiing, and riding motorcycles. He even learned to fly as an amateur pilot in Botswana.

Before the killings, Bishop was reportedly under psychiatric care and was using medication for depression.

The FBI is adding accused Tacoma double murder suspect Santiago “Pucho” Villalba Mederos to its “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” list. He is accused of killing 20-year-old Camille Love and wounding her brother on Feb. 7, 2010.

“She was my only daughter. I was the first person to hold her when she was born,” said William Love.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading directly to the arrest of Mederos.

“He just comes from behind us and gets in the lane next to us, speeds up to us, gets beside us and he just started shooting,” Joshua Love told Washington’s Most Wanted in 2010. “She wasn’t moving. I grabbed the side of her face and I was like, ‘Cami, Cami!’ She had a blank look on her face.”

The two innocent victims were not involved in gang activity
