Criminals fled prison sentences in the past, including two notable absconders who managed to cheat justice.
As of March 2022, Victor Manuel Gerena holds the record for the longest duration spent on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list. Gerena’s name remained on the list from May 1984 to December 2016, making him the fugitive with the lengthiest tenure. The authorities are still searching for Gerena, who is wanted in connection with a high-profile armed robbery that took place in West Hartford, Connecticut, in 1983. The robbery involved the theft of approximately seven million U.S. dollars from a security company. Despite extensive efforts, Gerena’s whereabouts remain unknown.
Securing the second spot on the list is Donald Eugene Webb, who remained a fugitive for 25 years. Webb’s inclusion on the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list spanned from May 1981 to March 2007. Known as a career criminal in New England, Webb became a fugitive after he fatally shot police chief Gregory Adams during a routine traffic stop in 1980. The mystery surrounding Webb’s fate endured until 2018, when his wife, Lillian, confessed to authorities that her husband had passed away from a stroke in 1999.
