FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives by year, 1965
As the year 1965 began, eight of the ten places on the list remained filled by these elusive long-time fugitives from prior years, then still at large:
- 1956 #97 (nine years), Eugene Francis Newman process dismissed June 11, 1965
- 1960 #137 (five years), Donald Leroy Payne process dismissed November 26, 1965
- 1962 #170 (three years), Edward Howard Maps remained still at large
- 1963 #175 (two years), Harold Thomas O'Brien process dismissed January 14, 1965
- 1964 #192 (one year), George Patrick McLaughlin arrested February 24, 1965
- 1964 #193 (one year), Chester Collins remained still at large
- 1964 #197 (one year), Alson Thomas Wahrlich remained still at large
- 1964 #199 (six months), William Hutton Coble arrested March 1, 1965
By year end, three of the longest listed Fugitives had been removed. With so many new openings on the list facing them throughout 1965, the FBI again had a very productive year of new captures, and added a total of an additional twenty-one new Fugitives, at a rate of nearly two per month.
1965 is also notable for the first-time inclusion of two brothers together, Samuel Jefferson Veney and Earl Veney.
