Mollie Halpern: A man who allegedly strangled and sexually assaulted a young mother is added to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.
A reward of up to $100,000 is available for information leading directly to the arrest of Robert Francis Van Wisse.
About 33 years ago, then 19-year-old Van Wisse registered for college classes in an Austin, Texas building.
That’s where case agent Justin Noble says Van Wisse attacked the victim, Laurie Stout.
Justin Noble: Latent print evidence and DNA evidence collected from the victim and from the crime scene conclusively link Robert Van Wisse to this crime.
Halpern: Beverly is the victim’s sister. The two were born only 14 months apart.
Beverly: I think about her every day. The pain, to me, is just as real today as it was that morning of September 1983.
Halpern: Van Wisse speaks English and Spanish. He has been linked to New York City; Washington, D.C.; Mexico; and South America. Report tips to 1-800-CALL-FBI. With Wanted by the FBI, I'm Mollie Halpern of the Bureau.
