Most Wanted Fugitive Found in Mexico
He is a convicted sex offender wanted for assaulting a five-year-old boy and possessing child pornography. Now, one of our ten most wanted fugitives—Jon Savarino Schillaci—is in custody in New Hampshire after being located and arrested in Mexico.
The FBI used sophisticated investigative techniques to track Schillaci to Mexico, where he was captured on Thursday morning by FBI agents and Mexican authorities in the town of San Jose De Gracia, which is located southeast of Guadalajara along the western coast of the country.
Our investigation led us to believe that Schillaci was living in Guadalajara from about February 2003 until September 2006 under the alias Dylan Natchitoches Pierce, aka Dylan N. Pierce. We also determined that he used the name Dylan Thomas for the boychat web-based radio show, The Dylan Thomas Show. Schillaci was also the webmaster of a pedophile site.
After his capture, Schillaci was transported by plane early Friday morning to Chicago and then on to Portsmouth, New Hampshire. He was later arraigned in the Rockingham County courthouse.
The charges. Schillaci was released from a Texas prison in 1999 after serving a sentence for sexually assaulting two 11-year-old boys. From there he traveled to Boston, where he was taken in by a Deerfield, New Hampshire couple with whom he’d frequently corresponded while in prison. They opened their home to give him a new start. Within months, however, Schillaci allegedly assaulted the couple’s 5-year-old son. That led to Schillaci’s indictment in New Hampshire in November 1999. Less than a year later, he was charged with 23 counts of possessing child pornography.
