Kentucky native added to FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list
ST. LOUIS (WXIX) - A man who was born in Kentucky, and is wanted for allegedly sex trafficking at least one child, was placed on the Federal Bureau of Investigations’ Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list Thursday.
According to his wanted poster, Donald Eugene Fields II, 58, attempted to “recruit, entice, harbor, transport, provide, obtain, maintain, patronize and solicit a person whom he believed was under the age of 18 and would be caused to engage in a commercial sex act.”
The FBI says the alleged incident happened in Missouri between 2013 and 2017.
A federal arrest warrant was issued for Fields on Dec. 8, 2022, in St. Louis, after he was charged with sex trafficking of children, the FBI wanted poster says
“This is a pattern we’ve seen with him,” said Richard Ruggieri, assistant special agent in charge with the FBI Cincinnati field office. “He’s using the trust he gains from under-aged and minor children and exploits that trust.”
Federal investigators say Fields was last known to be living in Franklin County, Missouri. He also has family in Missouri and Kentucky.
In addition, they say he is known to visit casinos and has traveled to Florida in the past.
Fields should be considered armed and dangerous, investigators say.
“We feel he is a serious problem, and a serious threat to the community,” Ruggieri said. This is a significant predator that we need off the streets.”
Investigators say Fields is between 6 feet and 6 feet-4 inches tall and weighs between 219 to 235 pounds.
He has hazel eyes and scars on his chest, groin, his left calf, and both knees, according to his wanted poster. It also says Fields has a tribal print tattoo on his right shoulder.
He may go by other aliases, such as Don Fields, Donald Eugene Fields Jr. and Eugene Fields, according to federal investigators.
Investigators believe he may be hiding with 30-year-old Jennifer Isgriggs, with whom he may share a romantic relationship. She is also wanted on a felony warrant of failure to pay child support.
“Sometimes family members don’t want to turn on their family members, and spouses don’t want to turn on their spouses,” Ruggieri said. “That is a real thing, and that is something we deal with, and try to fight that stigma every day.”
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $250,000 for information that leads to Fields’ arrest.
