Sharon Kinne is wanted for the murders of her first husband and another man back in the 60's. Although she was profiled on Unsolved Mysteries, I don't believe she was profiled on AMW.
Back in 1960, Kinne claimed that her 2 year-old daughter picked up her husbands gun and accidently shot him in the head. Although authorities were suspicious, there were no other witnesses, and Kinne was let go. She was also able to collect an insurance payment, which she used to purchase a car from a married man she was having an affair with. She wanted him to leave his family, and when he refused, she called his wife and wanted to meet, in order to discuss their affair. She never returned home. During the search, Kinne volunteered with another lover. One night, after searching, Kinne and her lover were at a lover's lane when the man discovered the wife's body. Kinne was eventually charged with the murders of the wife, as well as her husband. During the wife's murder trial, Kinne was able to charm the all-male jury into an acquittal. However, she was convicted for her husband's murder, after her lover testified she had offered him money to kill her husband. She was sentenced to life, but her conviction was overturned due to a legal technicality. She was released on bond, and went to Mexico. Eventually, she wound up in a seedy hotel with another man. When that man was found dead, Kinne was convicted of his murder and sentenced to 13 years in prison, despite her claims of self-defense. After serving 5 years, she was able to escape in 1969. She hasn't been seen since.
Since Kinne was able to charm the first jury to find her not-guilty, my guess is, if she's still alive, she's probably leeching off men with various stories of pity. Sort've like a mix between Hazel Head and Dara Lloren.
