LOS ANGELES (AP) — The FBI says a man on its Most Wanted list suspected of bludgeoning his mother, wife and three sons to death with a hammer nearly 40 years ago has Southern California roots.

Agents are taking a second look at the case of William Bradford Bishop Jr. who hasn't been seen since the day after authorities say he killed his family in Maryland in 1976. He allegedly burned and buried the bodies in North Carolina.

The FBI said Thursday it commissioned an artist to create a bust that approximates what the 77-year-old would look like today.

Bishop was born in Pasadena and still has associations in the area. He was also known to have an affinity for the Sierra Nevada.

Bishop was added to the FBI's Most Wanted list this month.
