5. Fisher Family murders, 2001
This grisly triple homicide and arson case placed Robert Fisher on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List. In April 2001, Fisher murdered his wife and children in their Scottsdale home, then set the house on fire, which caused a number of small and large explosions even as firefighters arrived on the scene. Fisher disappeared and he is rumored to be living in Rim Country.
