    A news story led me over the the FBI 10 most wanted, where I see Osama is listed as deceased. That made me think of Fred McLean, who I remember being on the US Marshall Most wanted list. I went on over there where he is still listed:

    They don't mention his JW past, but they sure do on America's Most Wanted, hopefully they catch this perv soon.

    From this site:

    Cops say that Frederick "Rick" McLean was described as a loner by those who knew him. An expert mechanic who was financially successful in the business of buying, restoring, and reselling vintage CanAm and open-wheel race cars from the '60s and '70s, McLean lived and worked in the San Diego and Riverside counties of southern California.

    According to U.S. Marshals, McLean was a Ministerial Servant in the Jehovah's Witnesses and was utilizing his position of trust to commit sexual crimes against young girls - some no more than 5 years old.

    As one victim's parents told AMW, they had no clue that an alleged sexual predator was amongst them -- even though church elders had prior knowledge of complaints against McLean from another congregation.

    McLean was an experienced outdoorsman and would often take children on overnight camping trips. Police maintain that parents trusted him with their kids because of his almost "fanatical concern" for the kids' safety.

    Authorities say that McLean was confronted a number of times over the years by those he molested, but Jehovah's Witnesses judicial committees require two witnesses to an event of molestation before taking any kind of disciplinary action. Detectives believe that by moving from one Kingdom Hall congregation to another, McLean was able to keep his crimes mostly hidden for 25 to 30 years, before finally being "outed" to the general public and "disfellowshipped", or expelled, from the religion.

    we had one in our KH that gave me the creeps.

    He visited my hall for almost 4-5 months.......... eventually this guy went somewhere else.

    this "candy for the kids guy" had my full radar on him

    Know Rick personally, truly a wolf in sheeps clothing, always acted like a guinely nice guy. What a surprise, but the biggest surprise is that the low life chicken s**t elders in the cong. knew of his enterprise with pedophilia and didn't tell anyone. They will pay some day, what a bunch of total assholes.
