After what's known as the Boston Chinatown Massacre, Pham fled the country and was last seen in Bangkok, Thailand in the '90s, according to the FBI.

Just one man survived the massacre and the other five died.

"In addition to the quintuple homicide, Pham is also wanted by the Boston Police Department for another murder that occurred on January 8, 1991, four days before the massacre," the FBI said in a statement, which you can read here.

The first crime committed by the East Area Rapist occurred in mid-1976 in the Sacramento area. Over the next decade, more than 45 women were raped and 12 people were murdered by the man later called the Golden State Killer.



"Pham was an associate of the Ping On crime syndicate & has ties to Boston, Chicago, New York and Philadelphia," the FBI said on Twitter, adding, "He also has family in the San Francisco Bay area, Toronto, Canada, N. Vietnam and S. Korea."

The FBI says Pham should be considered armed and dangerous and an international flight risk.
