43 Year Fugitive

In an April 26, 2013 photo, Lester Stiggers is interviewed by the Associated Press in Warren, Mich. Since he fled prison in 1970, the convicted killer has spent most of his life a free man in the Detroit area, thanks to a progressive governor who refused to send him back to Arkansas. Arkansas prison officials say they didn't know a 63-year-old fugitive was sick when asked Michigan this year to return Stiggers. But Department of Correction spokeswoman Shea Wilson told The Associated Press on Wednesday, May 8, 2013 that it's not the agency's role to make judgments about whether Stiggers should be brought back to the Arkansas prison system he fled in 1970.
