Photos: Man's 43 years as a fugitive may soon end

Lester Stiggers has been a wanted man for 43 years, but he hasn't been hiding. He lives in a one-bedroom apartment along a busy road in a Detroit suburb, getting by on about $700 in Social Security benefits and going outside only to see a doctor. Since he fled prison in Arkansas in 1970, Stiggers, a convicted murderer, has been a quirk of justice, living openly in one state while wanted in another. But his time as a free man may be coming to an end.
