Bad baby names from the FBI's Most Wanted list

User Rating: / 1
Written by Mary Fetzer   

One of the FBI's Most Wanted since 2011, Johnny Benjamin Napier was finally captured on Nov. 21, 2014. Certainly, when Napier's parents named their baby boy back in 1959, they never imagined the direction his life would take. A heinous child molester is not the first image that comes to mind upon hearing the name "Johnny Benjamin." Sadly, despite their attractive monikers, bad guys walk among us committing terrible crimes.

The FBI's Current "Most Wanted" Fugitives

Eric Frein, who went on the run after he gunned down two off-duty Pennsylvania state policemen, was captured on Oct. 30, 2014, following a 48-day manhunt. Others, however, still remain on the Most Wanted list:

  • Alexis Flores: kidnapping, murder
  • Eduardo Ravelo: racketeering, money laundering
  • Fidel Urbina: first-degree murder, aggravated kidnapping, aggravated sexual assault, unlawful flight to avoid prosecution and failure to appear
  • Glen Godwin: murder, escape
  • Jason Brown: first-degree murder, armed robbery
  • Robert Fisher: three counts of first-degree murder, arson of an occupied structure
  • Semion Mogilevich: mail fraud, fraud by wire, money laundering, aiding and abetting, securities fraud, false filings with the SEC, falsification of books
  • William Bradford Bishop, Jr.: oldest person added to the list; murder with a blunt instrument
