Brown, 43, is wanted on murder and armed robbery charges in Phoenix. He is accused of fatally shooting an armored car guard, Robert Keith Palomares, on Nov. 29, 2004, as the victim was exiting a Phoenix movie theater with more than $56,000 in cash. Authorities say Brown fired six rounds from a .45-caliber handgun at close range, striking Palomares at least five times in the head. Brown grabbed the guard’s money bag and fled on a mountain bike through an adjacent alley, the FBI says. Palomares died at the scene.

Brown speaks fluent French and has a master’s degree in international business. He is an avid golfer, snowboarder, skier and dirt biker. "He enjoys being the center of attention and has been known to frequent nightclubs, where he enjoys showing off his high-priced vehicles, boats, and other possessions," the FBI says.

Brown was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and completed his Mormon mission near Paris, according to the FBI.

Eric Justin Toth

Number three most-wanted fugitive Eric Justin Toth was captured in Nicaragua on April 20 by local law enforcement in the country.

The accused child pornographer was recognized by a female tourist who contacted authorities. He has been extradited to the U.S. where he's being held without bond.

The 31-year-old former private elementary school teacher and reputed "computer expert," was wanted for possession of child pornography in Washington.

In June 2008, pornographic images were found on a school camera that had been in Toth's possession, authorities say. Two months later, investigators found a fake suicide note in his abandoned car at Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport, The Washington Post reported.

Toth graduated from Purdue University with a degree in education, a background the FBI says is "conducive to gaining employment in fields having a connection to children." Authorities say he may advertise online as a tutor or male nanny.
