FBI Removes Accused Killer of His Family From Ten Most Wanted List
"FBI Removes Accused Killer of His Family From Ten Most Wanted List
Former foreign service officer is only the 10th person removed from list since 1950 without being caught, dying or having charges dropped

The FBI this week removed a long-sought fugitive—a foreign service officer accused of murdering his wife, mother and three young children in 1976—from its Ten Most Wanted List, bureau officials said.
William Bradford Bishop Jr. was only the 10th person removed from the Ten Most Wanted List since 1950 without prosecutors dropping charges or the fugitive being captured or dying. Despite removing him from the list, the FBI said it would continue to hunt for Mr. Bishop."
I don't understand,
Why are they removing Bishop from the list? Yet they will still look for him? Isn't that a double-standard? The passage of time does not make Bishop's crimes less horrific. Is there some statute of limitations for how long a fugitive can be on the list? Maybe they consider him dead as the reason for his removal from the list? For the record, who were the other fugitives removed from the FBI most wanted list and why? The link requires a subscription to read the full story.
