Fugitive of the Week: Willie Sanders

A Syracuse woman fears for her life after being attacked by her ex-boyfriend on Christmas morning.

The Syracuse Police Warrant Squad has named him as this week’s fugitive, hoping to protect her by catching him.

There hasn’t been any sign of 29-year-old Willie Sanders since Christmas morning— the morning he allegedly attacked his ex-girlfriend in her home in front of her young children.

“She was flung into a door and the glass broke. Pretty good gash. And he proceeded to choke her,” said Sgt. Mike Smith with the Syracuse Police.

She managed to break free, and call 911. He took off, and the trail for him has gone cold.

“We have twelve addresses that he’s been giving to various agencies over the last couple of years. A check of these addresses has come up dry,” Smith said.

Detectives say be

Former ‘fugitive of the week’ sentenced to 15 years for Vermont armed robbery spree

A 32-year-old Vermont man on Tuesday was sentenced to 15 years in prison and ordered to pay $25, 514 in restitution after he pleaded guilty to robbing eight separate armed robberies of convenience stores, banks and pharmacies in 2015.

The crime spree between Feb. 7 and Dec. 21, 2015 garnered Matthew T. Martin of Weathersfield the attention of local police in Brattleboro, Springfield, Ludlow and Bellows Falls, the Vermont and New Hampshire state police, and the FBI and U.S. Marshal’s Service. Just before his arrest in December, 2015, he was designated the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive of the Week.

U.S. District Court Judge J. Gavin Murtha sentenced Martin to 180 months in prison, restitution and five years on probation after he is released. Murtha said the length of the sentence is unusual but appropriate under the circumstances.

During the crime spree, Martin often disguised his appearance by wearing a fake beard or sometimes by

A former UT student added to the FBI’s Top Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list last December turned himself in last Thursday afternoon after more than three decades on the run. 

Robert Van Wisse, 51, surrendered to law enforcement officers in Laredo, Texas, according to the Austin Police Department, and has since been booked at the Travis County Jail. Van Wisse is accused of murdering and sexually assaulting 22-year-old Laurie Stout in 1983.

In September 1983, then-18-year-old Van Wisse was in an Austin office building after hours registering for a course. APD found Stout’s body the next morning and later ruled her death as a homicide due to strangulation
