From ljworld.com (2009 article):
The other is Randy Schmidt, who escaped with another inmate while working on the property at the state fairgrounds in Hutchinson on July 18, 1980. Schmidt, serving a sentence for rape and sodomy, drove a state dump truck off the property. Schmidt’s escape partner was later arrested in Oklahoma, where he told investigators he split up with Schmidt.
Schmidt was arrested in New Mexico three months after his escape, but Kansas authorities didn’t find out about the arrest until it was too late.
“By the time they got his fingerprints ran, that case had been dismissed and he’d been released,” Bonner said.
That break has allowed Schmidt to be on the loose for nearly 30 years.
After Schmidt’s arrest in New Mexico, the trail went cold. But Bonner said they know he hasn’t been arrested since.
“Schmidt had a lot of connections with a lot of people,” Bonner said. “He could be living well in Mexico.”
Thoughts? Although a bit of an old article I feel it's summation is decent enough. Schmidt would be 66 years old as of this posting date (10/9/2017).
