All that is known about Stephen Harrington is that he would be approxmiately 68 years old by the time of this thread posting.

In 1977, Stephen Harrington was in a relationship with Gabriele Heister until she broke it off. Gabriele then became the victim of Stephen's jealousy and stalking for a decade. She moved to New Jersey and married Harry Kavalos. Stephen caught up with her and threatened to kill himself. Gabriele and Harry then moved to Colorado where Stephen was temporarily admitted into a mental institution. In there, Stephen wrote to Gabriele's family, threatening to murder them. On Feb 24, 1987, Stephen ran from the hospital gym and fled into the civilian population of Aurora, Colorado. On Apr 9, 1987, Stephen shot and killed Harry. Stephen then fled to Toronto, Canada where he was living with a Mexican woman, he was last tracked to Mexico but has not been heard from in years.
Thoughts? Stephen Harrington was first aired on the Nov 27, 1988 episode of America's Most Wanted and was included in the master list of AMW fugitives that was sent to Scumhunter. Annoyingly, the murder of Harry Kavalos is actually on the Colorado Cold Cases website, but does not mention anything about Stephen Harrington. If he's still alive then he needs to be held accountable for Harry's murder, but after 28 years, that's only a possibility.
UPDATE from site admin: I have found no new articles online about this case in the three years since HeadMarshal's original posting. As far as I can tell, Harrington is still at large as of this update (7/26/2018), since I haven't found anything online suggesting otherwise. However, if anyone has any updates/proof-of-updates one way or the other, they are always more than welcome to let us know.
