Steve Lewis: It was 1949. A reporter from the International News Service asked the FBI for the names and descriptions of the "toughest guys" the Bureau would like to capture. The resulting story generated so much publicity and had so much appeal that FBI Director J Edgar Hoover implemented the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives program the following year in March 1950.
Eric D'Orazio: Seventy years on, the Most Wanted Fugitives program continues to combine different ways of outreach on a criminal subjecton a national level. Wanted posters, newspaper stories, radio shows, and TV programs have been supplemented by new outreach methods as the media landscape has changed.
Chris Allen: In the 70 years, we've had 523 fugitives on the lists; 488 of those were apprehended or located. And of those, 162 were a direct result of citizen cooperation.
