When Las Vegas real estate magnate Ron Rudin went missing in 1994, his wife Margaret didn’t seem too concerned. He’d been gone four days before she reported Ron missing, and she did so only after Ron’s coworkers had already informed the police.
Margaret soon became the prime suspect when her husband’s charred remains were discovered at a nearby Lake. When the law closed in on the softly spoken grandmother, she skipped town. On the lam, Margaret Rudin deployed a plethora of disguises and fake identities to elude capture.
