Two out of 10 ain’t bad. Well, there are all bad, which is why they are on the list. Number One is dead. They caught Number Two yesterday. So whoâ€™s left on the list of the FBIâ€™s most wanted?
Let me break it down for you.
Semion Mogilevich is about 65 years old, bald, overweight and Ukranian. Heâ€™s wanted for his alleged participation in a multi-million dollar scheme to defraud investors in the 1990s. Money laundering, securities fraud, falsification of books â€” he was indicted for that and more in 2003. He has quite a few aliases, all of which are hard to spell.
Glen Stewart Godwin will be 52 on Sunday. He escaped from Folsom Prison in 1987, where he was serving a lengthy sentence for murder. Late in 1987 he was arrested for drug trafficking and sent to prison in Guadalajara. In April 1991, he murdered a fellow inmate, then escaped from prison five months later. He also has a number of aliases that range from Michael Carrera to Dennis McWilliams. He speaks fluent Spanish and may be traveling throughout Central and South America or Mexico.
Jason Derek Brown, who will turn 42 on July 1 or turned 40 in January, depending on which birth date is correct, is wanted for murder and armed robbery in Phoenix, Ariz. In November 2004, Brown allegedly shot and killed an armored car guard outside a movie theater, then fled with the money. He speaks fluent French, has a masterâ€™s degree in international business, and is an avid golfer, snowboarder, skier and dirtbiker who enjoys being the center of attention. He has been known to frequent nightclubs, where he can show off his high-priced toys such as cars and boats. His mug shot on the FBI website kind of looks like Sean Penn. No offense, Mr. Penn.
Joe Luis Saenz, approximately 35 years old, has at least four different birthdates in the FBI file and a list of aliases that is really long. They include fun names like Peanut and Smiley, as well as Gabriel and Jose. In July 1998, Saenz shot and killed two rival gang members in Los Angeles, Calif., then two weeks later kidnapped, raped and murdered his girlfriend. He allegedly murdered a fourth victim in 2008. He is known to travel between the United States and Mexico, is thought to be a part of a drug cartel and believed to always carry a weapon. He is American.
Victor Manuel Gerena, an American of Puerto Rican descent who turns 53 tomorrow, is sought in connection to a $7 million armed robbery from 1983 in Connecticut. He supposedly too two security employees hostage, then handcuffed them and injected them with an unknown substance to disable them. His only alias is Victor Ortiz. He formerly worked as a security guard, the website states.
Eduardo Ravelo, a Mexican with a variety of birthdates, is about 43 years old, either has black hair or is bald. He has a long list of crimes that include racketeering, money laundering, and possession of illegal narcotics with intent to distribute. His alleged criminal activities date back to 2003. He is known to be a Capo (captain) within the Barrio Azteca criminal enterprise, and it is thought heâ€™s the guy that issues order in Juarez, Mexico. Ravelo and the Barrio Azteca members act as hitmen for the Vicente Carillo Fuentes drug trafficking organization and are responsibly for numerous murders. Ravelo may have had plastic surgery and had his fingerprints altered.
Robert William Fisher, 50, is an American who allegedly killed his wife and two young children, then blew up his house in Scottsdale, Ariz. in 1991. Heâ€™s been employed as a surgical catheter technician and respiratory therapist and was a fireman. Heâ€™s an avid outdoorsman and has ties to New Mexico and Florida. He is believed to be in possession of several weapons, including a high-powered rifle.
Alexis Flores, a Honduran whose age may range between 28 and 35, was allegedly involved in the kidnapping and murder of a 5-year-old girl in Pennsylvania in 2000.He has used a combination of the first names Alexis and Mario with the last names of Roberto, Flores and Contreras.
With the killing of Osama Bin Laden and yesterdayâ€™s capture of mob guy James Bulger, the above are the eight left on the list of most wanted. I heard that Bin Laden was on the top of the list and Bulger was second, but the website I looked at donâ€™t have numbers, just the guys.
Incidentally, the U.S. Secret Service has their own most wanted list, as do the U.S. Marshals and several other law enforcement entities.
I don’t know if, at this point, the FBI bumps a few more lesser wanted people up the list to get it up to 10, or if they just leave it at eight for now. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
