On Monday, U.S. Marshal Peter J. Elliott announced the release of a most wanted sex offender list called the â??Agonizing 8.â??
The list contains the most wanted sex offenders wanted by the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force (NOVFTF).
Dawn Smith, of Toledo, was among the fugitives named in the list and is wanted for failure to register as a sex offender.
In 2007, Smith was convicted in the "corruption" of a 13-year-old and as a result is required to register as a sex offender.

U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott said, â??We named the list the Agonizing 8 because the definition of agonizing is to cause great physical or mental pain and each of these offenders have caused great physical and mental pain on their victims.â??
Officials say all of the fugitives on the â??Agonizing 8â?? should be considered dangerous and should not be approached by the general public.
If anyone has information concerning the location of these fugitives, they are encouraged to call (866) 4WANTED or they can text keyword WANTED and to TIP411 (847411).
Tipsters may remain anonymous and cash rewards are available for information leading to the arrest of any of these fugitives.
