Frederick Wanamaker is wanted on child sex crime charges. He was aired on AMW five times from 2001 to 2006.
Wanamaker was a sailor who became a Boy Scout leader in Buckingham County, Virginia. He befriended a woman and her three sons, who were his neighbors. Starting in 1985, he molested one of the sons, starting when the boy was 10 and moved on to one of the brothers after three years. In the 12 years since the beginning of the molestations, Wanamaker had abused all three brothers and another boy who was a friend of the other three victims. When the youngest victim came forward, Wanamaker sold his vehicles, boarded a plane to Florida and then to the Bahamas. He then disappeared.
Interestingly, according to one article I read, a tipster called the AMW hotline after the first profile, claiming that Wanamaker had been caught with a boy in Sri Lanka. The tipster, a former shipmate believed what Wanamaker had paid off local authorities to let him go. The mother of three of the Wanamaker's victims believes that he could be in Thailand or the Philippines. This would make sense. It's also possible in my opinion that he could have gotten involved in child prostitution in that region of the world. Pedophilia rings down there would really like an American pedophile involved to get more American clients to abuse their victims.
