    Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution - Kidnapping, Rape


    The FBI and the Tate County Sheriff's Office in Mississippi are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of William Willingham.

    William Willingham is wanted for kidnapping and rape in Tate County, Mississippi. On December 22, 1998, Willingham is alleged to have tied up his girlfriend in her bedroom at her residence, and proceeded to the next room to rape her daughter. Willingham's girlfriend managed to free herself and went to the aid of her daughter. However, Willingham allegedly brandished a knife and forced his girlfriend back into her room. He then returned to the room of his girlfriend's daughter and allegedly continued to rape her. Willingham soon fled the residence.

    On March 4, 1999, Willingham was indicted by a Tate County, Mississippi Grand Jury for statutory rape and kidnapping. A federal arrest warrant was subsequently issued after Willingham was charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

    Willingham has ties to Memphis, Tennessee. He may travel to Arkansas and Alabama. He reportedly is a heavy drinker and uses drugs. He is known to carry a 12-inch knife.

    Willingham has the following tattoos on his left forearm: the word GEMINI; a circle with a symbol inside; and a circle with a cross inside. He also has two unidentified tattoos on his left bicep.;
