Donna Borup is a cold case fugitive who was an AMW web-exclusive between 2009 and 2010. Below is an FBI profile description of her alleged crime:
Donna Joan Borup is wanted for her alleged participation in a violent anti-apartheid demonstration at JFK International Airport in Queens, New York, on September 26, 1981. During the riot, Borup allegedly tossed a caustic substance into the eyes of a Port Authority Police Officer, leaving him partially blind. At the time, Borup was a member of the May 19th Communist Organization, a Marxist-Leninist organization which advocated the armed revolution and violent overthrow of the United States Government. Borup, along with some accomplices, was arrested and released on bail pending trial in May of 1982.
On May 20, 1982, an arrest warrant was issued for Borup after she failed to appear for her trial on a Queens County indictment which charged her with riot in the first degree and assault in the first degree. On September 14, 1982, a federal arrest warrant was issued for Borup in the Eastern District of New York and she was charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
Thoughts? Thanks to Pakman's 2004 AMW episode guide we know Borup's face was actually on AMW before she became a listed fugitive on their website years later, as the profile on Elizabeth Duke and her weatherman organization was shown Borup's face was among them (off-topic but I realized in the middle of making this thread for Borup, we never did one on Elizabeth Duke. I thought we already had her on her site for some reason and since I was already in the middle of this Borup thread I decided to finish it, if anyone else wants to do a thread on Duke go for it). They mention all of Duke's gang was caught besides her, but we now know thanks to Pakman Borup was actually never caught.
In any case, Borup in my opinion may be living a quiet domestic life in Pennsylvania or elsewhere which is why she's managed to stay on the run this long.
