Since Scumhunter did Joanne Chesimard yesterday, I decided to add another radical fugitive, who was also part of the same organization as Chesimard. Arthur Lee Washington is wanted for the 1989 attempted murder of a New Jersey state trooper during a traffic stop.
Washington and another man were pulled over due to an expired inspection sticker. When the officer approached the vehicle, Washington got out and walked away. Ignoring orders to come back, Washington pulled out a .45 automatic and fired at the officer, who returned fire. When the officer ducked to reload, Washington had fled.
Washington was added to the FBI's 10 Most Wanted list shortly after the shooting. He had served time for robbing the mayor of Neptune, New Jersey with a shotgun in 1972, as well as a gas station in 1982. It was revealed he had several ties to black militant prison groups, as well as several black nationalist groups, including the Black Liberation Army. He was removed from the list back in 2000 after they decided he no longer fit the criteria for the list.
Several rumors came about that Washington had contracted HIV, and may have died from AIDS. This came from the fact that he was a drug user with track marks all over his arm. In one article I read, they FBI mentioned they hadn't received any leads or tips since 1993. In my opinion, if the FBI confirmed that he did indeed have AIDS, then he most likely is dead, since its been about 13 years since he was removed from the list, and I doubt he would survive that long. But if the AIDS rumors are just rumors, I could picture him being overseas, like many other BLA members are.
