Most Wanted, 1962

BOBBY RANDELL WILCOXSON and ALBERT FREDERICK NUSSBAUM. Crime: Wanted for murder and multiple bank robberies and bombing incidents in Washington, D.C.

He was craftily disguised and armed with a rifle and 2 hand grenades. Wilcoxson was arrested less than a week later after emerging from a Baltimore, Md., hideout with a girl friend. Intense media publicity and the cooperation of relatives led to their capture.

WATSON YOUNG, JR. Crime: Young was added to the FBI list after escaping from a mental hospital and allegedly perpetrating a rape and double murder. Conclusion: He was known for his deep interest in funeral homes and, true to form, was arrested by Salina, Kans., police behind the wheel of a stolen funeral home ambulance, its red light flashing and siren blaring.

MICHAEL JOSEPH O'CONNOR. Crime: Wanted for the shooting death of an acquaintance in a tavern brawl. Conclusion: He was arrested 15 days after being placed on the Top Ten list. Convicted of 1st-degree murder, O'Connor was sentenced to life imprisonment.
