PARTNERSHIPS IN ACTION
To Catch Criminals and Terrorists

03/01/06

New Most Wanted Terrorists and SuspectsIt's happening more and more: local, state, federal, and international law enforcement agencies joining hands to protect communities and catch dangerous fugitives by sharing information and working cases jointly...supported by concerned citizens around the globe who provide valuable leads and information.

This past week alone, these partnerships paid off six times:

  • On Saturday, one of our top ten fugitives—Genero Espinosa Dorantes—was arrested in Mexico by agents of the Agencia Federal de Investigacion following a joint investigation by Nashville detectives, FBI agents, and Mexican authorities. Dorantes is accused of a terrible crime: severely beating, burning, and ultimately murdering his girlfriend's four-year-old son. How'd we catch him? It all started with a tip from a member of the Latino community in Nashville, which led to the girlfriend (also a wanted fugitive), which led to Dorantes.
  • Last Wednesday, convicted sex offender William George Barney was arrested by Baja California Ministerial Police (BCMP) with the help of Mexican immigration officials and law enforcement in California and Nevada. Barney was profiled recently on the Oprah Winfrey show and listed on this website. Tips resulting from the publicity helped us locate Barney.
  • Over the last week, our international partners also captured FBI fugitives in Cambodia, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti. Since the first of the year, 26 fugitives in eight countries have been located, in countries such as Ghana, the Philippines, Colombia, and Tonga.

Now, we're calling on these partnerships once again... to help us find nine dangerous terrorists and terrorist suspects, each of whom has just been added to our Most Wanted Terrorists and Seeking Terrorism Information lists.

These individuals are wanted for questioning by U.S. law enforcement for alleged involvement in committing or planning terrorist attacks around the world—not only in the U.S., but in the Philippines, Lebanon, Iraq, Kenya, Indonesia, and other countries.
