“Missing” fugitives

I saw the 1967 disappearance of William Leslie Arnold on the Nebraska State Patrol database. I don’t think I’ll put him on Charley, though. According to this Unsolved Mysteries post, he escaped from prison where he was serving time for the murder of his parents, a crime he committed when he was just 15 years old.

There are a few other people listed on missing persons sites who are actually fugitives believed to be on the run from the law. Heather Jean Johnson is wanted for attempted murder. Another man listed on NCMA, I forget his name, is wanted for hiding a camera in a girls’ locker room and filming the girls undressing. Whenever I find out about this sort of thing I remove the person from Charley. If they’re believed to have run to avoid prosecution, they’re not really missing, though their families may miss them.

      Roxanne: I would like to correspond with you about William Arnold. I’m working on a John Doe case and may have come up with a (recently exhumed) possible candidate. Please contact me through my website, http://www.silviapettemcom, and then we can exchange personal email addresses. Thanks, Silvia Pettem
