I find it hilarious that according to the article, Daniel told a confidential information that he was wanted, and as a result that tip led to his arrest.
In a way, that's not surprising. The longer you are on the run, the more confident you become that you'll never get caught and the more arrogant you'll become. Thus, you'll end up doing something really stupid like telling people you're wanted for murder and next thing you know, you're life on the run is over.
I agree, no show is perfect but it doesn't make them failures or mean that police can't track them down on their own eventually. As to the sentence Anibal got, good. Given the fact that he has to serve 85% of his sentence, the first time he will be eligible for release is when he's 110 years old. Least we know this is one person who won't hurt anyone ever again.
Seeing updates on this case about Webb and talks about his mob connections reminded me of the case of Costabile Farace, who was put on the Top Ten list back in 1989 after killing a DEA agent and taken off it after the mob had him killed due to the unwanted publicity the case brought onto them and the fear he would roll over on them to save himself. Pretty safe bet many of the mob folks Webb had ties to felt the same way so one has to wonder how much life in the open Webb was able to lead after 1980. If his location had been known, the only question would have been who got there first, the feds or the mob.

As far as the photos go, we don't know when the FBI obtained them.
I guess you can also say Webb unfortunately technically got away with it, although we don't know what kind of life he had on the run and how he died. (If it was just natural causes or if he had a disease and suffered).
I hope it was a painful form of cancer so his last years on this earth weren't fun ones. Read a couple more articles on this and it appears there will be no charges for the ex-wife forthcoming in exchange for her leading them to the body. Hate that it had to be done that way but if it means getting closure for the family, it had to be done.
No way he could stay on the run that long without help. I hope anyone who helped him is made to face charges if they can. Also, as others have pointed out, maybe if they had used more photos instead of just the one mugshot, he could have been caught while he was still alive to face justice. I'm glad there's closure in this case but I hate how this piece of garbage committed murder and got away with it. The good guys don't always win and this case is sadly one of them.

IMO, Sarah's biggest problem is that she is a narcissist and thus can't empathize with anyone but herself.
Throw in her arrogance due to her high intelligence and you get someone who became her own worst enemy over the past few years when it has come to getting a new trial.
Arrogance makes you stupid and I think Sarah thought with everything that has come out and some of the people she has on her side now, that she didn’t have to show concern for folks (or even fake it) caught up in her escape plot or others still hurting from the crime committed that day.
And by the time the light bulb went on in her head that maybe that wasn’t the best idea when you’re arguing you were a sweet and naïve young woman manipulated into doing various bad things you wouldn't have done otherwise, the damage was done.
Even if she gets a new trial, the biggest problem will be that even though others don’t have credibility, neither does she.
And she has no one but herself to blame for that.

I understand in some cases why people like this don't get long jail sentences. The victims want their money back and you can't do that if they are locked up. Also, with many prisons being overcrowded, understandable you may want to keep the space you have for murderers, rapists, child molesters etc. instead of people who have committed non-violent crimes like Quick has. Here's the problem though. Many of these criminals may not use violence but they still have a horrific impact on people's lives. They prey on people who have worked hard for their money or may not have much at all and take it from them without a second thought. They have no concern for the hardships it can cost the victims without that money, now or in the future. And as Quick has shown, they will do their scams again and again to innocent people until they are put in jail. I still remember the interview Lizzette Garvin gave after AMW caught her where she admitted she had been stealing from others her whole life and given that it was all she knew, would likely continue with it unless she was locked up. Quick is no different, as shown by this thread with him being arrested several times after AMW caught him. Time to lock him up for good, otherwise he will continue to prey on seniors until he dies.

Just saw this case on Snapped and Tamron Hall last weekend and decided to look for updates on this. I have to say like others here I'm torn on her getting a new trial. Elements of a wrongful conviction are certainly there for one. You have a large amount of evidence being provided by a co-defendant who has every reason to lie and a jailhouse snitch claiming she "confessed", both red flags and factors in many wrongful convictions. The DA in this case also saying justice wasn't served is another strong factor in Sarah being entitled to a new trial. On the other hand, as it's been pointed out numerous times, Sarah has done herself no favors. Even some folks in her corner admit at the very least she helped cover up the murders of two people so she is by no means innocent of any wrong doing. I also still remember (as others here have) the interview she gave on AMW after she was caught where she was asked questions that were just as fair and impartial as the ones asked on the Tamron Hall show and she had a fit because the reporter dared to ask her if she felt bad at the fact others were going to pay with their freedom for helping her gain hers for a time. She showed a complete lack of concern for others, which fit with the AMW profile of her. The fact it took her so long to apologize for what she did to them also doesn't bode well in her favor. I have to say even though I think she did it, the factors of wrongful convictions I mentioned above do warrant a new trial, like it or not. We can't have a system where stuff like that is ignored just because the defendant is a scumbag. That would lead down a road the justice system should never go on.

In 2002 after Joseph Safrany #722 turned himself in on September 19th, there weren't any captures for nearly another month when Esat Bici's (#723) body was identified in Mexico after karma paid him a visit on October 12th. There again would be a capture drought of nearly a month but starting with Thomas McCray#724 on Nov 3rd, there would be 12 captures before November ended so that made up for it.
Don't know how we never heard this (at least not that I know of) but AMW capture #571 Tibis Kneipp died in prison in 2007. Found this out while reading an article about a current child molestation fugitive from Fort Collins who likely fled to Mexico mentioning fugitive history from the area. (off-topic but that fugitive is now in my case file list but no plans yet to post his case since police asking for help in locating him has not yet been mentioned in any articles).
P.S. Also off-topic but why this obits of fugitives/convicts always make them sound like such great members of society? I understand they had a family, but it's always "So and so, was a poet, artist, loved flowers, loved people" and I'm always like "how about mentioning they killed someone?"
Family members aren't going to stop loving their loved ones most of the time, even when he or she does a horrible thing. And what Kneipp did was as horrible as you can get. So seeing his obit doesn't surprise me one bit. Ricardo Londell Harris # 576 obit is still up and it's just as disgusting. All I can say is to both of them is good riddance to bad rubbish and thank goodness their victims loved ones got to see justice with their loved ones killers dying in prison.
Carey Price took a plea deal and was sentenced to 12 years in prison- with 8 of them mandatory.
Grady Hill’s family was disappointed with the length of the sentence, but were glad to see justice finally done in the case.
Once he is released from prison, Price will be barred for life from driving, drinking alcohol or visiting a bar. (How exactly they plan to enforce the latter two is beyond me- even a probation officer can't watch someone 24/7- but in theory at least those are good rules.)
A slap on the wrist for what he did but I can understand why the plea deal had to be made, especially after all this time. As for the second part of your statement, I concur. Unless he is on probation after his release, there is nothing to forbid him from going to bars or drinking alcohol. The driving part yes, everything else no.
Suspect named in beach couple murder. Shaun Gallon who had murdered his younger brother in March 24, 2017 confessed to authorities.
Thank you for letting us know about this catchumall. In a way this is even more of a tragedy that Shaun had to commit another murder before he was positively identified as Jason and Lindsay's killer. This is why these fugitives and unidentified perpetrators need to be arrested as soon as possible, to prevent more tragedies from happening while on the run or while unidentified.
Sad to say but in some cases, it's the only way they are resolved. May justice be done and may Gallon never live to see another day of freedom.
