(Newser) – The FBI has finally replaced Osama bin Laden on its Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, but the new addition doesn't quite have the stature of the mass-murdering terrorist mastermind. The new face of alleged evil: Eric Justin Toth, an ex-third grade teacher who's been on the lam since 2008, when pornographic images were found on his school camera, ABC News reports.

Toth was last seen in Arizona in 2009, and is believed to have passed through Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. Officials suspect he is working as a tutor, male nanny, or another position that would give him access to children. The Bureau is offering $100,000 for information leading to his capture, which doesn't quite measure up to the $25 million that bagging bin Laden would have earned you. It's worth noting that the FBI doesn't rank the fugitives on its list, insisting that they are all equally important. Neat stat: Of the 495 fugitives to have graced the list since 1950, 94% have been apprehended. (Read more FBI stories.)
