(Newser) – A convicted killer on the lam for 38 years was finally nabbed this week—running the Cactus Rose wedding chapel in Arizona. Frank Dryman, who murdered a driver who picked him up hitchhiking on a snowy Montana road in 1951, skipped out on parole decades ago. He was finally tracked down by a detective hired by the murder victim's grandson. Authorities said Dryman, living under an assumed name, blended in well with the locals and had even made friends with county sheriffs.
