PROFILE: One of the most wanted men in America


Back on April 10, 2001, Robert William Fisher allegedly murdered his wife and two children and subsequently blew up their Scottsdale, Arizona, house.

Fisher shot his 38-year-old spouse, Mary, in the back of the head and slashed Brittney, 12, and Bobby, 10, from ear-to-ear.

He then attempted to cover up the crime by filling the house with natural gas and lighting a candle to eventually ignite the gas and cause an explosion.

Fisher, now 55, was apparently angry at his wife for wanting to divorce him, and, being the product of a split home, did not want his children to endure what he had while growing up.

The husband and father of two was immediately identified as a suspect, but could not be located and was soon declared a fugitive.

In 2002, he became the 475th fugitive to be placed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list. What the FBI has described as “hundreds of leads” on Fisher’s whereabouts over the years have all come back negative.

The FBI released age-enhanced photos last year on the anniversary of the murders.
