The F.B.I. has added a Purdue graduate who has other ties to Indiana to it's "Top Ten Most Wanted Fugitives" list.
Eric Justin Toth, a former private school teacher and camp counselor, has been wanted for at least four years on charges of productioin and possession of child pornography. "2008 was when we discovered that there were some pornographic images that were located on a school camera that he had in his possession," says F.B.I. Special Agent Wendy Osborne.
Toth, whom the F.B.I. says has been known to use the alias David Bussone, has family in Northwest Indiana and went to college in the state after transferring from Cornell University. "He was a previous graduate of Purdue University," Osborne says. "He did his education there, received a degree in education we believe, in the 2000's."
Osborne says investigators don't know the last time Toth was in Indiana, but they believe he has been in the region several times over the last few years. "He's travelled in and around Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Since he does have family ties to Indiana and specifically Northwest Indiana, we really want to keep the public on alert, and if they have any information to let us know." Osborne says investigators believe Toth lived in Arizona as recently as 2009.
Toth also may still be advertising himself online as a tutor or a male nanny. "He has to have some type of funds to survive, in order to eat and provide shelter," Osborne said "He is also somewhat of a computer expert."
Toth has eluded capture despite being featured several times on the TV show "America's Most Wanted." He is 30 years old, approximately 6'3", 155 pounds with brown hair, green eyes, and a medium complexion. Osborne says a distinguishing characteristic is that Toth has a mole under his left eye.
Anyone with information about Toth should contact their local law enforcement department immediately.
