Video: Walter Lee Williams


An alleged child predator is the 500th person added to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.

A reward of up to $100,000 is being offered for information leading directly to the arrest of Walter Lee Williams.

“I analyzed the computers and the camera that belong to Williams and found child pornography,” said Special Agent Jeff Yesensky.

Williams is a former tenured professor at a prominent California university where his field of study was gender development. Williams was also affiliated with the Buddhist Universal Association.

“Because of his status he has the means and access to children, and that’s what makes him dangerous,” said Yesensky.

Williams’ victims are boys between the ages of 14 and 17 – many of whom live in third world countries. 

Jeff Yesensky said, “He preys on the most vulnerable children.”

If you have information on Williams’ whereabouts dial 1-800-CALL-FBI or visit www.fbi.gov.
