Authorities in Rhode Island have been searching for Ronald Fischer for nearly a decade. He was aired on AMW three times between 2005 and 2006.
Ronald Fischer worked as an anesthesiologist in Rhode Island and was ivy-educated. In 1992, he lured a woman onto his yacht known as "The Lion King" where he proceeded to rape her. He pled guilty and only got 5 years probation. In 2003, he met a college professor online and took her to the same yacht. He also proceeded to rape her. Fischer was arrested but fled during his trial in 2005. He was convicted in absentia and may face up to life in prison.
Thoughts? Oddly according to the Rhode Island Most Wanted page, Fischer was born in Guatemala (unusual for a non-latino fugitive). Therefore he could easily have fled there or to another Latin American nation where he's living off his wealth and using a false identity. I'm somewhat disappointed that AMW didn't air him after 2006 and I don't understand why.
UPDATE from site admin: As of July 21st, 2018, Fischer is still on the Rhode Island State Police website as one of their most wanted fugitives: risp.ri.gov/mostwanted/index.php
