Memo to William Bradford Bishop, Jr:
From CNN --
"On Monday (July 28), eight days after the show ('The Hunt') first aired, the 32-year-old suspected sex offender (Charles Mozdir) died in a shootout in New York City as police closed in. During the show, first broadcast on July 20, a deputy U.S. marshal fielding calls got a tip about Mozdir, accused in a 2012 California child molestation case...'This is our first capture,'" announced the new show's host, John Walsh.
In my open letter to you of April 11, I warned you that your being placed on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list would make your world much smaller: "From now on, you can count on being at much greater risk of being found out and turned in. That grocery clerk, that gas station attendant, that second wife. Spurred to act by that hundred grand in reward money on your head. Unless you've had major plastic surgery, your face is now a bullseye." Charles Mozdir turned out to be a real life bullseye. Not a pretty end. But justice was served nonetheless. Now with "The Hunt's" profiling the Bishop murders this past Sunday, count on your world, such as it is, closing in even more.
In three days time, you will turn 78. I, of course, have no idea of your state of health, but a flurry of bullets won't make it better. Sure, Mozdir was on the lam for only two years and you for thrity-eight. And the trail, let's face it, is cold indeed. But so were those of John List and Whitey Bulger, murderers apprehended after eighteen and sixteen years respectively. Heck, they're even arresting nonogenerian SS officers for war crimes sixty-nine years after the end of World War II. Of the 502 fugitives who have been on the FBI's Top Ten list, 471 have been apprehended or located.The odds are against you and they're growing.
"The Hunt" did not spare the viewing public of the letting of so much blood from the fatal wounds you inflicted on Annette, Lobelia, Geoff, Brent and Brad III. Ponder that your turn may be next. Do you have the guts? Better to turn yourself in and finally face the music. Drop me a line.
