Name Occupation Possible influence Facts & Analysis
John List • Accountant

• Dad
FBIJohn List (note the typical wordplay in his naming) was "captured" after America's Most Wanted featured a clay bust age-progressed 18 years by the FBI. From Wiki:
The bust was sculpted by forensic artist Frank Bender ... To imagine what an older List would look like, he consulted forensic psychologist Richard Walter, who created a psychological profile. He looked at photographs of List's parents and predicted his appearance, giving List a receding hairline and sagging jowls. Bender and Richard Walter were particularly praised for one final touch: they accurately predicted the type of eyeglasses frames that List would be wearing, by taking into account his personality type and the kind of eyeglasses he had favored in the past.  John Walsh, the host of America's Most Wanted, called Bender's work the most brilliant example of detective work that he had ever seen.
Wow, how did they do that!!!  Skeptical?  The New York Times confirms the story, as does trutv!  Most accounts place heavy emphasis on John's prayer life, ironies like his wife's interest in Wicca, and numerous "if onlys" that John should have seized upon before causing the FBI so much trouble... if only had he ever existed.
