What a desperate crook and this guy owes a lot of money for his crimes.  To me, the interesting part about finding this guy is the man hunt aspect. The one hit against Schrenker right now, is that everyone knows what he looks like and what he did.  He is very visible and left a lot of tracks, unlike DB Cooper.  I suspect that this guy will be caught pretty soon, but still, this is one for the books. -Matt

Edit:  And he is caught.  He tried to commit suicide as well.
