The Federal Bureau of Investigation has reached a milestone that it wishes it hadn’t – adding the 499th and 500th names to its “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” list.

Added to the lists were Jose Manuel Garcia Guevara, aka “Pelón,” an alleged murderer and rapist, and Walter Lee Williams, an alleged child sex predator. 

The FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list is not only an international symbol of the agency’s work but has been part of the America scene for nearly 60 years.  During its existence the “Ten Most Wanted” lists has included everyone from serial killer Ted Bundy to Chicago killer Fidel Urbina to Osama bin Laden.

Here are the latest two additions to the list: 

Jose Manuel Garcia Guevara allegedly murdered a 26-year-old woman in the presence of her 4-year-old stepson in Louisiana, in 2008. Guevara and the victim lived in the same mobile home park. Guevara allegedly broke into the victim’s home, raped her, and brutally stabbed her to death.  After an arrest warrant was issued Guevara disappeared.  Authorities believe he is in Mexico having been born in San Luis Posoti.

The 500th honor goes to Walter Lee Williams a former university professor who is wanted for the alleged sexual exploitation of children and for traveling abroad for the purpose of engaging in illicit sexual acts with children.  Williams was affiliated with a religious organization known as the Buddhist Universal Association in Los Angeles, California. Williams has an extensive history of travel throughout the South East Asia region, specifically the Philippines. He may also travel to Mexico and Peru.
