Guy was a career criminal, no real job skills, long history of run-ins with the law. There's no way he escaped and never re-offended, and especially if he wanted to make contact with his family again. He probably died not too long after he escaped. It's barely possible he was re-arrested under a different name; but if so, he died in prison under that name, again, not too long after that and wasn't properly identified. There's just no way he lived a long, trouble-free life and died a free man.

There should be a statute of limitations on fugitives. After a certain period of time the government should just give up and say "You win" and move on to other things instead of wasting more time and money on it. Especially if it's been over 40 years.

It was the one armed man.

Did they conduct a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in that area?
