FBI's Age-Processed Photo Depicts Communist Radical who Attacked N.Y. Cop

The FBI has released an age-processed photo of a woman who allegedly threw acid into the eyes of a Port Authority Police officer during an anti-apartheid demonstration at JFK International Airport in 1981.

The age-processed photo, which is based on 1981 booking photos, depicts what Donna Joan Borup could look like in 2011. Borup is wanted for allegedly tossing an acidic substance into the eyes of Port Authority Police Officer Evan Goodstein at the Sept. 26, 1981, demonstration. Officer Goodstein was partially blinded.

At the time, Borup was a member of the 19th Communist Organization, a Marxist-Leninist organization that advocated the armed revolution and violent overthrow of the U.S. government. Borup was arrested and released on bail.

On May 20 of that year, an arrest warrant was issued for Borup after she failed to appear for trial. On Sept. 29, a warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution (UFAP) was issued by the Eastern District of New York.

Borup is a white female between 5-foot-4-inches and 5-foot-6-inches tall and weighs approximately 160-170 pounds. She has brown or blue eyes and is between 59-64 years of age. Borup's aliases include Rebecca Ann Morgan, Donna Borup, and Donna Austopchuk. She has family ties to New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

"Borup has been on the run for too long and deserves to be brought to justice for her alleged attack against a law enforcement officer," said Supervisory Special Agent Tim Flannelly. "We're asking the public to look at these photos and to contact the FBI if they recognize Borup."

Borup's wanted poster is currently on the Clear Channel billboard in Times Square. The slide flashes between her old photo and the age-progressed photo.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI immediately at (212) 384-1000. Tipsters may remain anonymous.
