“The Family Annihilator” allegedly killed his mother, his wife and three sons in 1976, but now the FBI believes that by adding William Bradford Bishop Jr. to its 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list that it may have a chance to fbi-top-ten-list” target=”_blank”>bring him to justice.

“When Bishop took off in 1976, there was no social media, no 24-hour news cycle,” Steve Vogt, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Baltimore Division, said in a statement. “The only way to catch this guy is through the public.”

Mr. Bishop allegedly used a hammer to kill his entire family, including his boys ages 5, 10 and 14, before setting fire to their bodies in a shallow grave in North Carolina, Reuters fbi-mostwanted-20140410,0,6553707.story” target=”_blank”>reported.

With the help of a forensic artist, the agency created a three-dimensional bust of what the suspect may look like at 77 years old — if he’s still alive.

“If he’s dead, so be it,” Mr. Vogt said, “but until we know for certain, we will not stop searching for him.”

Mr. Bishop has a reward of up to $100,000 on his head for information leading directly to his arrest, the FBI said.

“If Bishop is living with a new identity, he’s got to be somebody’s next-door neighbor,” Mr. Vogt said. “Don’t forget that five people were murdered. Bishop needs to be held accountable for that.”
