According to CNN, a former private school teacher from Washington, D.C., has made the FBI’s Top 10 Fugitive List for child pornography charges, replacing Osama Bin Laden’s spot on the list.

Eric Justin Toth, also known as David Bussone, was a third grade teacher at the National Cathedral’s Beauvoir School. While teaching at the school, pornographic images were found on a school camera that had allegedly been in his possession, according to the article. Allegedly, Toth had installed a camera in a bathroom used by students that was adjacent to his classroom, according to an FBI official.

Toth went missing during initial investigations. However, he was eventually indicted in Washington, D.C., for possession of child pornography and in Maryland for production of child pornography.

According to the FBI:

Toth is a computer expert with above average knowledge of the Internet.

Toth is 6 feet 3 inches tall with brown hair and green eyes. He weighs approximately 155 pounds.

Toth graduated from Purdue University with a degree in education.

Since fleeing Washington, D.C., Toth might have traveled to Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Minnesota. He was last seen in a homeless shelter in Phoenix in 2009.

Toth might advertise online as a male nanny or tutor, according to an FBI poster.

By adding Toth to the Most Wanted List and offering a reward up to $100,000, the FBI hopes that there will be new leads that will lead to his arrest.

About Haley Behre

I graduated from Syracuse University in December 2011 with majors in newspaper journalism and women and gender studies. Using these majors, I aspire to become a journalist who writes about human rights issues. I have held internships at the Syracuse New Times, Dash Media PR Firm, Syracuse Post-Standard and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. I also had an internship at the Not For Sale Campaign Syracuse chapter, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating human trafficking. I was born in Seoul, Korea on September 30, 1990 and moved to the United States before I was one year old. When I was 8, my family and I moved to Norwich, England for three years. While I was here I was immersed into a new culture and got to experience many things other children my age do not get to. Over the three years, I visited Ireland, France and the Netherlands several times, and Belgium, Wales and Sweden once. In the winter of 2010, I got an amazing opportunity to visit Kenya for a month. This was by far the single most eye-opening experience of my life thus far. The natural beauty of the landscape and its people do not compare to anything I have seen. I currently intern for the Reporters Committee for the Freedom of the Press in the hopes of getting a full-time job at a newspaper or non-profit after.
