Thirty years ago, Pham allegedly shot six men in the back of the head while they were playing cards in a social club in Boston, Massachusetts.

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.
