Cold case fugitive Adam Emery was aired on Unsolved Mysteries on October 14th, 1994. According to Unsolved wiki, he has also aired on America's Most Wanted and Dateline NBC although I don't know their exact dates.
In 1993, Adam Emery, then 31, was tried and convicted of second degree murder in the 1990 stabbing death of Jason Bass, 20, in Warwick, Rhode Island. Emery mistakenly believed that Jason sideswiped his car as he, his wife Elena, and another couple were sitting in it at a roadside food stand. He then tracked Jason's case car down yelling about the damage. jason tried to get away but Emery stabbed him in the heart, killing him.
Emery was said to be strangely emotionless in court maintaining that he "had to defend himself." The day he was convicted, he and Elena vanished. Their abandoned car was found on the Newport Bridge where they are believed to have jumped to their deaths. Because no trace of Adam has ever surfaced, some believe that he faked his death and that he is somewhere very much alive, but common sense dictates that he is dead since Elena's remains were found in the water near the bridge and were definitively identified through DNA testing.
There are strong pieces of evidence that Adam and his wife were planning to commit suicide. Elena purchased 80 pounds of weights, sweatsuits, and athletic socks at a sporting goods store barely a half hour after the verdict was read, something she would not be thinking about at such a time without some motivation of some kind. Another clue that they planned their suicides is that she could be seen mouthing the words, "We're gonna do what we originally planned. You promised me." to Adam in a video taken in court right after the verdict. Some think the cryptic words mean that they had planned to commit suicide all along if he was found guilty.
Adam Emery was declared legally deceased by a judge in 2004. Despite this the FBI mysteriously re-added Emery to their most wanted fugitives list (that is overall list, not the top 10 to clear any confusion) back in 2010.
Thoughts? First minor note: 1994 is the wanted date since that's when the federal warrant was issued.
Anyway, obviously the fact that Elena did commit suicide means Adam could have as well. However, his body has never been found. And there was a similar case with a suicide pact with US Marshals Top 15 fugitive Randy Yager last year. Him and his missing girlfriend Margie Jelovcic were said to have a suicide pact. But when they were finally tracked down after 17 years in hiding only Jelovcic tried to flee- and shot herself during a pursuit. It could be possible Emery's wife went first in jumping, and Adam like a coward didn't honor their agreement. I also find it rather mysterious the FBI re-added him in 2010. It makes me wonder if they received information they couldn't let out in public that Adam Emery may very well be alive.
