Real Name: Robert William Fisher
Wanted For: Murder
Missing Since: April 2001
Details: On the morning of April 10, 2001, an explosion ripped through the home of 40-year-old churchgoer and outdoorsman Robert Fisher of Scottsdale, Arizona. It burst into flames, and inside firefighters found the bodies of his 38-year-old wife, Mary, 12-year-old daughter, Brittney, and 10-year-old son, Bobby.
Investigators believe that Fisher is a man with many faces; although he appeared to be a loving father and husband, the marriage was difficult from the start. Mary claimed that he was controlling and authoritative, that they argued frequently, and that he often yelled and screamed at the children. The marriage almost ended a few years earlier when he confessed that he had an STD and that he was having an affair. Mary kicked him out, but a few days later they reconciled.
On the night before the murders, they was heard arguing just after returning home from Brittney's induction into the Junior Honors Society ceremony. Police believe that Fisher's motive was an imminent divorce, because he didn't want to put the children through what he went through when his parents divorced. A few days after the murders, authorities thought they had him cornered in a small cave near Payson, Arizona, after Mary's SUV and their dog, Blue, were spotted by a camper. However, a special sewer camera found no trace of him in there, and now they believe that the SUV was left as a red herring to help him escape.
Though some believe that Fisher committed suicide, others including the police believe that he is alive and has created a new identity. He has been indicted for the murders of his family. He is 50 years old, 6'1, weighs 190 pounds, has blue eyes, brown hair, surgical scars on his lower back, and a golden crown on his upper left canine tooth. He should be considered armed and dangerous.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the June 18, 2002 episode. Fisher was also profiled on America’s Most Wanted and The Hunt with John Walsh.
