British Fugitive Lived Inconspicuous Life in Rural Missouri


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — On the surface, Edward Maher and his wife appeared to enjoy a comfortable middle-class life. They had homes in quiet neighborhoods, drove late-model cars and took occasional weekend trips. They raised two sons.  But beneath that veneer lay a darker past.  Maher was an international fugitive.  He was wanted in Britain on allegations that he stole a fortune worth $1.5 million back in 1993, while working as a security guard for an armored truck company.  When he was captured in rural Missouri, the suspect dubbed "Fast Eddie" by the British media had managed to evade arrest for nearly two decades.  Public records and interviews with neighbors suggest he did so mostly by living an inconspicuous life of unremarkable jobs and making frequent cross-country moves.
