In an photo April 26, 2013 photo, Lester Stiggers is interviewed by the Associated Press in Warren, Mich. Stiggers is a wanted man _ except in Michigan. Since he fled prison in 1970, the convicted killer has spent most of his life a free man in the Detroit area, thanks to a progressive governor who refused to send him back to Arkansas. Much like the U.S. gives foreign refugees asylum from threats in their homeland, that governor, William Milliken, gave Stiggers asylum from Arkansas. The state of Arkansas has renewed its efforts to bring him back to face justice. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)
