Boonlert Thanarakol and Surjit Sae Sow have been wanted for over 35 years in connection with a homicide in Nassau County, New York. While I don't have their photos to post, I do have their 1991 reenactment from Youtube.
Boonlert and Surjit were cocaine suppliers to the infamous Alan Golder in the late 1970s. Golder was the leader of a group of robbers known as the Dinnertime Bandits, because they would break into wealthy households while the occupants were having dinner, stealing valuables, especially jewelry before anyone would notice them. Golder convinced the two to help him in robbing the house of millionaire Lawrence Lever in December 1978. In the middle of the burglary after encountering Alan, Lawrence surprised Boonlert and Surjit as they were in a room. Before Lawrence could reach for a shotgun, Boonlert shot him to death. The trio then fled but Alan Golder was soon arrested. Golder cooperated with police and named other criminals, including members of the Genovese crime family, and as a result he only got 15 years in prison. After his release, he resumed his crime spree and became a fugitive, before being arrested in Europe in 2006. However, his two accomplices in the Lawrence Lever murder have never been located.
Thoughts? It's believed that after their 1981 indictments, Boonlert and Surjit fled underground to Thailand, and they're probably still there. There probably have been hardly any leads in this case, which would explain why AMW didn't even reference them by name after Golder resumed his crime spree and became a fugitive. The two would only be around 60-years old by now, so they're most likely still alive. Thailand and the US did sign an extradition treaty in 1992 and I'm pretty certain murder would be an extraditable offense, however the two likely look nothing like they did in 1978, so they would be very difficult to spot. Sadly all of this makes the prospects of ever capturing them extremely unlikely.
