It was in 1950 the FBI came out with their Ten Most Wanted Fugitive list to publicize dangerous criminals, basically the toughest guys the FBI wanted to capture.J Edgar Hoover was given the okay to start the list and generally the only way to get off the list is to be captured or die. Some of the first names on the list included Moley Vernon King who was accused of killing his wife. Orba Elmer Jackson who was an escaped prisoner serving a life sentence for armed robbery. The list has grown quite a bit since 1950, but by 2011, 465 of criminals on the list had been captured with 153 of them done so with help from the public.
