I knew you were going to say that lol. For now I'd just focus on the good news and worry about the vacancies after we've have had enough time to celebrate. (generally I like celebrating major captures for a few days, and then "getting back to work" later )
Yes Hiers is technically a filled slot but once again he is pretty much believed to be captured, Marshals are purposely not confirming or denying it as there is a China thing going on there and it often takes years to finally extradite a fugitive even if in custody.
Technically, there are three and not four open slots if you count Hiers slot, but once again let's just celebrate Chadwick for the time being.
Chadwick has been denied bail- which would have been nice had he been denied in the first place (supposedly on the 48 Hours show they said he couldn't be denied as a man with no past criminal record- he was entitled bail if he could afford it and unfortunately someone like him could- but I guess going on the run finally cancels that out)
Also according to reports Chadwick was caught in the Mexican town of Puebla which was in Central Mexico. He was staying at higher-end resorts and moving around but started going to less luxurious resorts since the higher-end ones insisted on passports.
Wanted to correct myself a tiny bit, according to the US Marshals capture report, the name of the stays in Mexico where Chadwick was captured was Puebla. The town itself where he was captured was Altlixco, which was still not far from Mexico City.
Chadwick apparently pretended to be a special agent to avoid capture and keep local officials from being suspicious.
Taking nothing away from who this case is really about, Quee "QC" Chadwick, this is one of those rare fugitive cases where the intrigue actually lived up to the hype. In other words, sometimes we're throwing out these exotic theories and it turns out the fugitive when captured was living a boring life on a ranch somewhere and while we're happy they were captured, we're actually surprised there's not much more to the story. Here Chadwick's time on the run was just as weird and unusual as the entire case in general.
