FBI Most Wanted Fugitives List: The Worst Criminals of 1969

About the worst criminals in America in 1969 according to the FBI most wanted fugitives list including Billie Austin Bryant and Marie Dean Arrington.

Most Wanted, 1969

MARIE DEAN ARRINGTON. Crime: Sought for prison escape, when she was awaiting execution in the brutal murder of a Florida legal secretary. The victim's bullet-riddled body was also crushed when it was run over by an auto several times. Conclusion: The 2nd female to make the FBI's Top Ten list, Arrington was apprehended in New Orleans in 1971.

BILLIE AUSTIN BRYANT. Crime: It was Bryant's dubious distinction to have been the 1st fugitive responsible for the death of 2 agents since a 1934 gun battle between the FBI and Baby Face Nelson. The FBI men were shot while pursuing Bryant following a bank robbery. Conclusion: He was sentenced to life imprisonment for murder.

CAMERON DAVID BISHOP. Crime: Wanted in the alleged sabotage of 4 power transmission towers in Colorado. Conclusion: Bishop, who was a member of the radical Students for a Democratic Society, was the 1st so-called 'revolutionary" to be placed on the list. The drift into a new area of pursuit by the FBI reflected the changing social tenor of a country whose campuses and ghettos were racked with dissent and violence. Bishop, like many extremist fugitives, disappeared into an accepting and somewhat organized underground, which provided a protection not usually afforded to the traditional FBI fugitive. On March 12, 1975, authorities apprehended Bishop in Rhode Island.

BENJAMIN HOSKINS PADDOCK. Crime: Prison escape. Conclusion: Paddock was serving a 20-year sentence for bank robbery when he escaped from the Federal Correctional Institution at La Tuna, Tex., on December 31, 1968. Paddock is still at large, and according to the FBI he is "diagnosed as psychopathic" and "reportedly has suicidal tendencies."
