While many evil people are too dumb or greedy to get away with their crimes, some have managed to simply vanish, evading capture for years. A few criminals have managed to escape, either through connections in the underworld, the liberal application of fear, or the apathy of those around them.
Some are prominent terrorists hiding around the world, like former Al-Qaeda number two Ayman al-Zawahiri or legendary cartel head Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman. These are men so powerful that they've managed to hide in plain sight in their own countries, but have escaped the watchful eyes of international law enforcement. In Guzman's case, he's escaped prison not once, but twice.Other famous evil people hiding in locales unknown are longtime members of the FBI's Ten Most Wanted, vicious killers who murdered children and skipped town. For them, life is a never-ending glance over the shoulder, to make sure the police (or the folks at America's Most Wanted) aren't on their tail.
Daniel William Hiers
A former police officer, Hiers was wanted in 2005 by the US Marshals for serially molesting a ten-year-old girl. When the warrant for his arrest went out, Hiers murdered his wife and made a run for it. He's been a fugitive ever since and his whereabouts are unknown.
Fisher has long been on the run for murdering his wife with a gunshot to the head, slitting the throats of his two children, then blowing up their house. His motive for the 2001 murders is believed to be an upcoming divorce. The FBI suspects he may still be in Arizona, where the killings took place.
David Benjamin Creamer
While not a murderer like the others on this list, David Benjamin Creamer is no less horrifying. Beginning in 1993, he was under investigation for running a massive child pornography ring, having allegedly made millions sending pedophilia CD-ROMs all over the world. He was arrested in 1997, but was released on bond and failed to appear for a pre-trial hearing, and hasn't been seen since.
Wanted for the kidnapping, rape, and murder of a five-year-old girl in Philadelphia in 2000, Flores was deported in 2005 - before his involvement in this horrific crime came to light. Since then, he's been added to the FBI's Most Wanted List, and is believed to be either in his native Honduras or back in the US.
