The FBI continues to search across the country and around the world for Ten Most Wanted Fugitive William Bradford Bishop, Jr. Yesterday marked the two-year anniversary of Bishop being named to the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.
He is wanted for allegedly bludgeoning to death his wife Annette, mother Lobelia and three sons, William Bradford III (14), Brenton (10) and Geoffrey (5) at their home in Bethesda, Maryland on March 1, 1976. Investigators believe Bishop then drove to rural North Carolina, buried the bodies in a shallow grave and lit them on fire. The United States Attorney’s Office in Maryland has charged Bishop with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution in the murders - reported by Fbi.gov.
Baltimore FBI, Montgomery County Police, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of State have received and followed up on more than 650 leads in the last two years. They have checked lookalike reports in grocery stores, neighborhood bars, truck stops and even a bridge club.
A reward of up to $100,000 is being offered for information leading directly to the arrest of Bishop.
