How do you feel about bargaining?

So, we have a new Hide and Seek world champion, eh?
 
2012-09-20 07:48:12 AM
Did he kill himself? Did a bear eat him? Did the redneck zombie torture killers get him? Did the real killer kill him so he could never reveal the truth?

Remains of fugitive

He's dead? That ought to make him easier to catch.

"We would have preferred to bring him in alive to face justice..."

Gee whiz, maybe you should have searched just a little harder in the last 3 years, given the fact that he was found a whopping 8 miles from the crime scene.

That headline sounds a bit hinky...

On a serious note though, the atlanta olympic bomber hid in the Appalachians for 5 years surviving on frogs and lizards, before the feds found him... Sounds like this guy tried the same tactics, but was worse at survival skills that the atlanta bomber...

This. The Fark headline is more informative than the entire article at Fox.

Found him; House of Pies.

Actually, he survived by stealing grain from local farmers, literally hundreds of pounds of it over the years, and by scavenging from the dumpsters near his "summer camp", which was only 200 yards into the woods near the town of Murphy. He was caught by a local deputy during one of those scavenging trips.

His "winter camp" was far more isolated, and that's why he stole the grain: As a winter food source.

Here is the Google cache of how he did it, in his own words.

Well, if you have to run into a murderer deep in the woods, better that it be a dead one I suppose.

Here is more of the same, again, a Google cache, explaining his activities scavenging during the summer, including raiding vegetable gardens and fast food dumpsters.

Cop1: There he his, I found him...

Cop2: BANG!!!!

Cop1: oops, he is unarmed, nothing to see here, move along....

Three years later:

Cop2: Lets look over here in the woods where I checked three years ago... Hey guys, I found him with a strange hole in his head

Cop1: Looks like a bear attack to me....

Cop 1 and 2: YEA! Were heros!!!

Dick Gozinya: "We would have preferred to bring him in alive to face justice..."

The terrain in Bath is so rough it's no surprise. Your 15 minute walk turns in to a 3 day bid for survival.
 
2012-09-20 09:15:21 AM
"we would have Preferred to have brought him in alive to face justice."

Just once I wish a cop would be genuine and say something to the effect of "we're glad the bastard is dead and that we don't have to hunt for him any further wasting our resources. We hope that what ate him found him tasty and nutritious. Now go be dead for the rest of eternity you scumbag. "

Or something similar.

Alas never to be.

The Fugitive. It's a movie about a fugitive, and the search for him.

That wasn't his only camp. He had 15 or 20 of them scattered over the county. One just 100 yards (uphill) from the LEO task force.

He was also known to break into summer cabins and trailers when the weather got really bad.

The remains of the prime suspect in a 2009 double murder and one the U.S. Marshals' most wanted fugitives were found in a wooded area in Virginia.


FTFAA DNA test confirmed that it was the suspect who led law-enforcement on an exhaustive manhunt for more than three years.

Apparently not.

Explain how this guy led anything?

Yeah, it's not like he was living off the land to the extent that people believe he was, but then again, he really didn't need to. All he needed to do was to simply stay hidden and avoid human contact as much as possible.

His summer camp was actually more like 600 or 700 yards from the FBI field office, actually, but he used to scavenge for food only 100 yards away from it.

It says this guy's remains were found with clothes that appear similar to the ones he was last seen in, so I'm guessing this guy went into the woods and killed himself relatively quickly. If he was surviving for any length of time I'd expect him to accumulate an appropriate wardrobe.

They say that nothing is obscure on Fark. The truth is that questions of that sort are unlikely to get a straight answer.
