Eric Justin Toth (alias/a.k.a. David Bussone) (born February 13, 1982) is an American former fugitive wanted for allegedly possessing and producing child pornography. He was caught in Esteli, Nicaragua on April 10, 2013 and extradited on April 22, 2013 to the United States to face trial. On April 10, 2012, Toth replaced Osama bin Laden on the FBI Ten Most Wanted list as the 495th fugitive to be placed on that list by the FBI. One alleged reason he was chosen for the list is that his distinctive appearance—he is tall and thin, with a mole under his left eye—would make it hard for him to hide if his case became well publicized.
Toth attended Cornell University for a year and transferred to Purdue University, where he graduated with a bachelor's degree in education. In 2008, he was accused of producing pornographic photographs and video footage of young boys while working as a third-grade teacher in Washington, D.C.
Toth has often been described as a computer expert; he has demonstrated above-average knowledge regarding computers, the use of the Internet, and security awareness. Toth has the ability to integrate into various socio-economic classes and is an expert at social engineering. He used social networking sites regularly. His educational background was conducive to gaining employment in fields having a connection to children. Some have described Toth as a compulsive liar.
Toth was captured by the Nicaraguan police on April 2013 in Estelí, a northern city of Nicaragua. He was immediately extradited to the United States to face trial.
In March, 2014, Toth was sentenced in federal court to 25 years in prison. After his federal prison term, Toth will be placed on supervised release for the rest of his life. Upon his release, Toth also must register as a sex offender, receive sex offender treatment, and observe limits on his use of the Internet and his contacts with minors.
