Full Answer

Of the ten most wanted U.S. criminals, eight are murderers. William Bradford Bishop, Jr., Yaser Abdel Said and Robert William Fisher are wanted for the alleged murders of their own families. The other murderers on the list are wanted for various violent break-ins and robberies. One example is Jason Derek Brown, who shot an armored car guard who was entrusted with a large sum of money before he fled, possibly to France.

The one non-violent criminal on the FBI's list is Semion Mogilevich, who is wanted for his involvement in a multimillion-dollar scheme that defrauded thousands of investors between 1993 and 1998. The FBI estimates that the total losses suffered by Mogilevich's investors may exceed $150 million. The FBI suspects Mogilevich of funding the scheme, and the agency knows that his primary residence is in Moscow; in addition to his Russian passport, he may also possess Greek, Ukrainian and Israeli passports.
