How To Make The FBI's 10 Most Wanted List
CBS News reported that child pornographer Eric Justin Toth replaced the late terrorist Osama bin Laden on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted List.
John Miller explained how the process works.
CBS News senior correspondent John Miller, a former assistant FBI director, said various divisions of the FBI is now poring over piles of folders, meeting a couple times a week to fill that space.
So how are "Most Wanted" fugitives selected?
Three criteria are considered when a person is added to the list, Miller said. How long someone has been on the list - the longer the more likely the person gets added to the list - helps qualify a candidate. Also, people make the list if they're believed to be at risk of committing, usually, a violent crime, again. And finally, if national publicity could help find the person, they may be added to the listing.
