Thomas James Holden

The FBI has granted 494 fugitives most-wanted status. Thomas James Holden was the first. Holden's storied past as a gangster included robbery and prison breaks in the 1920s and '30s (he was recaptured on a golf course in Kansas City, Mo.), but he was placed on the list in 1950 for murdering his wife and her two brothers in Chicago. Holden was caught in Oregon in 1951 and died in prison.
