Eric Toth: One of WMW's 'Top Ten', now added to FBI's top list

Accused child porn predator fills Osama bin Laden spot

UPDATE: The FBI has added Eric Toth to its “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” list. As a member of the list, the FBI is now offering a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading directly to his arrest.

 

---ORIGINAL CASE 7/8/11---

 

The FBI has a  fugitive alert for a former school teacher and camp counselor accused of making child porn.

The FBI calls Eric Toth a predator and a "chameleon", and thinks he could now be right here in Washington.

He's considered dangerous and suicidal, and it's so important to the F.B.I. to catch him, that they've partnered with Clear Channel to post Toth's face up on several digital billboards around Tacoma and Kent.

A photo of him in class shows what Toth looked like in June of 2008, when agents say he was caught with pornographic images on a school camera while teaching inWashington, D.C.

The FBI says one of his victims was a student in his class.

Since then, they say he's been roaming from state-to-state, from Illinois to Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Arizona.  In Arizona he was spotted at a homeless shelter.  Authorities believe he could now be in our state and advertising online as a tutor for kids -  a real-life nightmare for any parent.

Five victims have been identified so far, but the FBI thinks there are many more out there - including new ones during the three years he's been on the run.

His full name is Eric Justin Toth -- but is also a known identity thief who uses the fake first name "David".

He's an education graduate of Purdue University and also attended Cornell.

Toth is 29 years old, 6’ 3”, 155 lbs., and could have a beard or be clean-shaven.

He’s a teacher allegedly abusing his position to use kids to make child porn.  It doesn't get much sicker than that.  He's had a three-year run from the law.  Let's be the state that sends him back to face justice.

If you spot Eric Toth this Fourth of July weekend, or anytime, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS so we can help the FBI catch this accused child porn perp.
