A Los Angeles fugitive described by investigators as a “hot prowl rapist” has been added to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list.

Greg Alyn Carlson fled while on bail after being arrested for sexually assaulting a woman and is considered “armed and dangerous,” the Los Angeles Times reports. http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-fbi-fugitive-predator-la-20180927-story.html

The FBI is offering a $100,000 read for information that leads to the capture of Carlson, who investigators was involved in at least three sexual assaults in the past 15 years.

Investigators warned that Carlson broke into women’s home while and sexual assaulted them at knifepoint.

“Greg Alyn Carlson joins the notorious Top Ten list because he is considered an enemy to the public, and we believe his violence may escalate,” said Paul D. Delacourt, the assistant FBI director in charge of the Los Angeles office. “My hope is that his photograph will be viewed by many on the internet, on every phone, in every newspaper and on television sets across the world until he is caught.”

FBI’s Sophisticated Database to Catch Serial Killers, Rapists Is Squandered

The FBI built a sophisticated database to help catch serial killers and rapists but hardly anyone used it since its launch more than three decades ago, Newsweek reports.

The idea was to help local, state and federal law enforcement discern behavioral patterns, like the type of knife used or how a body was disposed.

Trouble is, law enforcement used the technology, called Violent Criminal Apprehension Program, or ViCap, in less than 1% of the violent crimes committed a year.

The FBI hasn’t divulged how many crimes ViCap has helped solve. In a 12-year period ending in the 1990s, only 33 crimes were linked to the use of the system, Newsweek wrote.

The program cost taxpayers about $30 million.

Elias Acevedo Sr. said he doesn’t know why he raped children and killed two women more than 15 years ago.

Acevedo has agreed to be studied by behavioral analysts who work with the National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime pleading guilty to the crimes last month, The Columbus Dispatch reports.

Acevedo “truly, truly feels horrible about what he did, but he doesn’t understand why it happened,” his attorney, Bret Jordan, said. “He doesn’t know if what he did could be prevented, but he wants to know.”

The FBI declined to comment on the arrangement.
