Thoughts? The FBI made a press release about Zeller over the weekend which is why I'm adding him as a breaking news fugitive to our site. Some additional details from a local nola.com article:
"Zeller is charged with two counts of possession of pornography involving juveniles under 13 and two counts of computer-aided solicitation of a minor. The charges stem from an October 2015 arrest by the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office and FBI.
Investigators received a tip from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children that someone was sending and receiving child pornography using an email address authorities later determined belonged to Zeller, according to arrest reports.
Detectives arrested Zeller at his Pier Avenue home in Metairie and seized his computer and other digital devices. During the search, they discovered that Zeller used Facebook to chat with a victim under the age of 15, authorities said. Zeller had explicit photos of the girl that she sent at his request.
State law bars registered sex offenders convicted of certain crimes, including possession of juvenile pornography, from using social networking websites."
Additionally, as of this posting date (7/30/2018), Zeller has still has a wanted stamp on his National Sex Offender registry listing: www.icrimewatch.net/offenderdetails.php?OfndrID=1651937&AgencyID=54245&x=413d7ee2-c03a-44dd-b24e-85b1efc5c4b2
