  • The International Criminal Police Organizationaka, Interpol, is tasked with bringing to justice  

  • the worst criminals in the world. Today we'll  meet the Most Wanted Americans on that list

  • 10. Jason Derek Brown Maybe you've met this guy and you didn't  

  • even know it, although he might have introduced  himself as Derek Brown, or maybe Greg Johnson or  

  • Harline Johnson or Greg Harline Johnson. You might  have even met him in a French-speaking nation,  

  • seeing as he's fluent in French. He's also  said to be armed and extremely dangerous,  

  • so perhaps it's better you didn't meet him. His story is a strange one. For a while,  

  • he walked and cycled around France as one of those  smartly dressed Mormon missionaries you seem to  

  • see in just about every country. On returning  to the US, he opened a couple of businesses  

  • that he ran out of Utah. There he spent big and  pretended to live the life of a wealthy person,  

  • although much of his cash came from scams. It seems he must have run out of cash in 2004.  

  • That's the year he went out and  bought a .45 caliber Glock pistol.  

  • Shortly after, on November 29 that yearhe watched a young, armored car guard  

  • named Robert Keith Palomares collect the  deposits from the Phoenix AMC theater

  • It was then that a hooded man, believed to be  Brown, unloaded his gun into him, shooting him  

  • five times in the head. The gunman then grabbed  $56,000 in cash and made a getaway using a  

  • bicycle. Fingerprints from the bike pointed to  Brown, who was charged with first-degree murder  

  • and armed robbery. But where is he

  • Well, that's what the FBI and Interpol  have been trying to figure out. The FBI  

  • knew he drove around the US for a while  after he realized he was a wanted man,  

  • but then the agency said he became a “ghost.” The trouble is, he looks a bit like a  

  • scraggly-haired surfer dude and  there are plenty of them about,  

  • so there have been umpteen false sightings of  Brown. Even one of Sean Penn's body doubles  

  • was arrested when he was mistaken for Brown. Where this Shaggy lookalike is now is anyone's  

  • guess. There are theories stating he could  have changed his name and be somewhere in a  

  • small Mormon community, or he's currently  living in Quebec, Canada, or possibly as  

  • far away as France or Thailand. That's why  Interpol has him on its Red Notice List

  • The FBI is offering a $200,000 reward  for the capture of Brown, but as we said,  

  • he's dangerous so shouldn't be approached. As you'll see now, some terrible people wanted  

  • by Interpol are not exactly in hiding. 9. John Lytus

  • In 2016, this convicted sex offender  was found guilty of aggravated assault  

  • and kidnapping in what was an  astonishingly violent crime  

  • involving a homeless pregnant woman in FloridaHe'd been arrested for similar offenses twice  

  • in the US in 1986 and 2009. When the judge  sentenced him this last time he said,  

  • He's not going to hurt anybody ever again.” He might be in prison in the US, but the  

  • reason we told this story is this man is still  wanted in Nicaragua, again for violent crimes.  

  • Just because you get sentenced in one country  doesn't mean you are off the hook in another,  

  • so your name stays on the list. Ok, now for an extremely dangerous man  

  • who's been on the run for a long, long time. 8. William Bradford Bishop Jr.

  • In 1976, this former United States Foreign  Service officer shot and killed his wife,  

  • mother, and three sons. Even though he's  now in his 80s if he's alive and kicking,  

  • he's still called a “dangerous fugitiveby the  FBI and is actively being looked for by Interpol

  • What went wrong with this guy is a bit  of a mystery. He was highly educated,  

  • gaining a degree at Yale University in his  younger years. He then started working for  

  • the US intelligence services and later the  US State Department. He was useful, too,  

  • seeing as he is fluent in five languages- EnglishItalian, French, Serbo-Croatian, and Spanish

  • On March 1, 1976, he drew out a load of cash  in the town where he lived in Maryland. He then  

  • bought a sledgehammer, gas can, a shovel, andpitchfork. He returned home and bludgeoned his  

  • wife to death. After that, he went looking  for his mother while she was walking a dog  

  • and he did the same to her. He then  went back home and killed his kids

  • The FBI says he was prone to outbursts  and didn't sleep very well. It's said  

  • he suffered from depression and to ease that  he drank vast amounts of Scotch. He also took  

  • psychiatric medications and had spent some time  at a mental institution prior to the murders

  • The question is, could he still be out  there somewhere after all this time

  • The FBI thinks that's possible given he is  intelligent and very savvy when it comes  

  • to outdoor survival. He has extensive  camping and hiking experience in Africa  

  • and even flew planes there, so he could  quite easily have gone off the grid and  

  • survived. He could be in Africa, but with those  language skills of his, he could be anywhere

  • If you think that story is messed up,  

  • listen to this one. 7. Leo Frederick Burt

  • This is the only terrorist on the list, but  we should say Interpol is currently looking  

  • for quite a few more. We should also  point out right now that the majority  

  • of wanted people are on the list for sex offenses. Leo Frederick Burt's case is one that stands out

  • On August 24, 1970, a bomb went off at the  University of WisconsinMadison campus and  

  • a professor was killed. Others were injured, tooIt was soon discovered that the people behind this  

  • crime did it in protest of the university's  military research during the Vietnam War

  • As many of you know, a lot of folks in the US  weren't happy about that war, and that's why at  

  • the time of the university bombing you would have  seen students walking about carrying protest signs  

  • that read, “U.S. out of Vietnam! Smash Army Math!” Four guys planted the bomb, with three of them  

  • eventually being arrested  and serving time in prison

  • Burt was the one that got away. For 50 years  authorities have searched high and low for him,  

  • following leads that took them from Canada  to Costa Rica. An FBI agent once said,  

  • He's got to be worried every day that he's going  to slip up and get caught. That's no way to live.” 

  • His life was indeed wrecked after that crimeOnce a young journalist with a bright future  

  • ahead of him and with a close family he loved, he  fell off the face of the planet. Wherever he is,  

  • he's in his 70s and likely not as fast on his  feet. The FBI will still give anyone $150,000  

  • for information that leads to his arrest. Now it's time to put a woman on this list,  

  • someone wanted for committing an outrageous crime. 6. Catherine Marie Kerkow

  • On June 3, 1972, Western Airlines Flight 701,  set off from California on its way to Seattle.  

  • Aboard were Cathy Kerkow and her army veteran  boyfriend Roger Holder. Sometime into the journey,  

  • Holder passed a flight attendant a note that read: “Everyone, except the Captain, will leave  

  • the Cabin. There are four of us and two  bombs. Do as you're told and No shooting  

  • will take place.” He then showed herbriefcase that had wires attached to it

  • The demand was for $500,000 in ransom  and the release of a political activist  

  • named Angela Davis. Kerkow and Holder saw  themselves as activists, too, railing against  

  • racism in the USA and also the war in Vietnam. By all accounts, after they dropped off the  

  • passengers in San Francisco, the two directed  the flight to Algeria and on the way smoked  

  • some weed and joined the Mile High Club. Things  didn't go too well there, and the pair left for  

  • France, where they were arrested. Holder was extradited to the US,  

  • but what happened to Kerkow has remainedmystery. She's still wanted on air piracy  

  • charges to this day. In 2019, the FBI stated  that this woman wasarmed and dangerous.”  

  • If you meet her, she might be going under  the name of Odile Pesse or Janice Ann Forte,  

  • but that beautiful face of hers will have  changed a bit seeing as she's now 75. 

  • Now for something very different indeed. 5. Lorrie John Trites

  • This man used to be the head swim coach atPennsylvania college, but he was discovered  

  • doing something that appalled his students, the  college, and just about everyone else who heard  

  • about what he'd done. When swimming practice  was over, Trites would take videos of teens  

  • and women getting changed in the dressing rooms. Some women saw the camera hidden in towels while  

  • they were undressing, so they handed it over  to the most respectable person in the vicinity,  

  • the man they could trust, coach Trites. He  then tried to delete the content, but cops  

  • soon knew it was him who had planted the camera. His crime came as a huge shock to the community,  

  • given that he had a solid reputation after  founding the Trident Aquatic Club in Lancaster  

  • County. He was also friendly with many  of the people at the local golf club,  

  • who also admired him. This was a guy that had  accreditation with pretty much every swimming  

  • association in the US, and he was also a perv. He was charged in 1998 a year after the videos had  

  • been taken. As well as the six counts of violating  Pennsylvania's wiretap law he was charged with,  

  • he was also charged with tampering with evidence  for deleting some of the content on the tapes

  • Sometime later, he left all of his worldly  belongings behind and headed to Trinidad.  

  • That's where he might be nowpossibly teaching swimming or golf

  • If you see him, he might be going under the name  of Buddy. He's also hard to miss, given the fact  

  • he is six feet seven inches tall. While he didn't  commit a violent crime, the FBI says he should be  

  • considered armed and dangerous. Who knows what  a person will do if they think the jig is up

  • The next guy on the list was a cop himself, so  understandably he doesn't want to go to prison

  • 4. Al Gurkan In 2005, Gurkan was charged with the crime  

  • of stealing drugs from dealers on the streets  while he was on the job as a police officer

  • No sooner than he was charged, he vanished. His  last known address was in Hollywood, California,  

  • but his present address is a mystery. The  FBI seems to think he might be in Turkey

  • For stealing heroin, cocaine, and  marijuana with a couple of accomplices,  

  • he faces charges of drug conspiracy, possession  with intent to deliver narcotics, and possession  

  • of a firearm while dealing narcotics. It was a simple setup the guys had.  

  • The accomplices would call up a dealer and say  they wanted to buy a fairly large amount of drugs.  

  • When the exchange was about to happen, guess  who would turn up and do a traffic stop?  

  • Gurkan. They all then sold the  drugs and shared the spoils

  • As you'll see now, just as in that case, a lot  of regular street crimes make their way onto  

  • Interpol's list. 3. Jason Liu

  • Like many young guys in the US, Liu made  the sometimes fatal mistake of thinking it  

  • would be a good idea to join a street gang  and make mortal enemies of other gangs.  

  • That got serious on September 13, 2000, in  Fullerton, California, when he and some others in  

  • his gang decided to go head-to-head with a rival  gang. This was over an argument that had taken  

  • place between two rival gang members in a bar. Liu and his buddies were driving when they spotted  

  • the other gang. It was reportedly  Liu who then shouted the words,  

  • Blast them.” That happened and it ended with  one young man dead, and three others injured

  • Liu's buddies got some serious time in  prison after that, but he's still on the run.  

  • It's thought he might be in South Korea or Taiwan. Now back to someone who has made it onto the FBI's  

  • top ten most wanted people in America. 2. Robert William Fisher

  • This guy once belonged to the United States  Navy. He tried to become a Navy SEAL,  

  • but after failing, he made his way in life  with some decent jobs, such as stints as a  

  • firefighter and respiratory therapist. Fisher had a problem, though, and that  

  • was his controlling attitude towards his wife and  children. He even gave his son a hard time because  

  • he didn't like to hunt or fish, as he did. A  church-going man, from the outside, things looked  

  • fine, but to people that knew him, he was a messPsychologists later said that childhood trauma  

  • over his parents' divorce and the fact his wife  was going to divorce him sent him over the edge

  • A long way over he went, too, when in  2001 he killed his wife and two children  

  • and blew up his house. He then vanished. Since he was a skilled outdoorsman it was  

  • thought for a while he was hiding out  in forested areas in Arizona or perhaps  

  • even living in caves. His truck was soon found  near Fort Apache Indian Reservation in Arizona,  

  • and he was spotted nearby by some walkers. In 2002, he got on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List  

  • and a $100,000 reward was offered for any  information that might lead to an arrest,  

  • but even though police received hundreds upon  hundreds of tip-offs, Fisher either remained out  

  • in the wilderness or started a new life somewhere. Given his survival skills, he could be in a remote  

  • part of the US or Canadabut even with those skills,  

  • it would be a longshot if he were still living  without cash to his name in the back of beyond

  • On the FBI's website, it states that if he is  still alive he will no doubt be heavily armed,  

  • so approaching him would not  be something anyone should do

  • This last wanted man has to be the oldest guy ever  to make the list, so even if he's caught we doubt  

  • he'll ever serve much of his 280-year sentence. 1. Prakashanand Saraswati

  • This man offered people spiritual enlightenmentand as so often can be the case with powerful  

  • gurus who take people under their God-like  wings, they exploit people's trust,  

  • and do something terrible. In the 60 and 70s,  

  • Saraswati spent much of his time wandering  alone in far-off regions in the Himalayas,  

  • finding himself in forests learning how to devote  his life to eternal love and spirituality. When he  

  • emerged from out of nowhere, he started the  “Society of Divine Lovein India in 1975. 

  • He wrote books, includingThe Philosophy of  Divine Loveand opened centers to teach such  

  • love around the world. One of the centers  became the largest Hindu Temple in the USA,  

  • complete with an ashram on a huge plot of land. That's still there, but it has distanced itself  

  • from its founder after he was charged  with using his power to take advantage  

  • of some of the younger female members who  stayed there. They came forward when they  

  • were adults and what they said ended with the  courts convicting Saraswati of 20 offenses. He  

  • was subsequently sentenced to 280 years in prison. Except he didn't spend one day in prison because  

  • he didn't even show up for his trial. This was  back in 2011 when he was 82-years old. This man  

  • said to be able to live in a state ofconscious  ecstasy”, a man that can reach higher planes than  

  • the rest of us, was also capable of magically  gliding through the hands of law enforcement

  • He might have made some people believe he  could elevate them above their day-to-day  

  • state of consciousness, but when push came  to shove, he was also able to make very down  

  • to Earth plans with his followers to sneak  into Mexico and somehow get over to India

  • He's one of the few people on this list  the FBI doesn't say is armed and dangerous,  

  • and at 92 it's a miracle he's still on  the loose. According to US authorities,  

  • the reason thefondling guruis able to remain  on the run is his dedicated devotees. The US  

  • Marshall's office said, “There are people that  we've talked to who are devoted followers of his  

  • and they will sacrifice criminal charges  and prosecution to help his flight.” 

  • Now listen to this unsolved mystery, “Brutal  True Story of What They Didn't Tell You About  

  • the Burger Chef Massacre.” Or, havelook at, “Hotel Where People Keep Dying.”
