  1. WILLIAM CLAYBOURNE TAYLOR

    Unlawful Flight To Avoid Prosecution - Murder, Aggravated Battery

    William Claybourne Taylor is being sought for his alleged involvement in the January 8, 1977 murder of a former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) official, and the shooting of a former mayor of Williston, Florida. On the night of the murder, Taylor, and an accomplice who is deceased, pulled alongside a car that was occupied by the victims. Taylor allegedly shot and killed the former INS official during an attempt to murder the former mayor.

    On May 15, 1980, Taylor was indicted by a Marion County Grand Jury in Ocala, Florida for murder and aggravated battery. He was arrested on May 20, 1980, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and subsequently released on a $20,000 personal recognizance bond returnable to Ocala, Florida. However, Taylor never appeared in Ocala to surrender. On August 6, 1980, a federal arrest warrant was issued by the United States District Court, Middle District of Florida, Jacksonville, Florida, after Taylor was charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

    Taylor sometimes wears a mustache and has been known to dye his hair red. He reportedly is bisexual, frequents adult bookstores, and is a heavy drinker. Taylor has ties to the Chattanooga, Tennessee area. He may have a United States passport in the name of Michael Ferris Cauley.

    Taylor has scars at the base of his right index finger and his right middle finger.; He also has a four-inch scar (half moon) on one of his knees, and a burn scar on his right forearm.
