DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – A woman who was on the run from Texas authorities for nearly four decades has been caught in Michigan.
U.S. Marshals arrested 58-year-old Kathlyn Regina Huff outside of her home in the 30000 block of Gladstone Street in Farmington Hills on Wednesday night.
Huff has been on the lam since 1977, when she was indicted by a grand jury in Bexar County, Texas, on charges of attempted murder. U.S. Marshals Service spokesman Chris Bozeman told the San Antonio Express-News that Huff was suspected of shooting her common-law husband in the head. He survived, Bozeman said.
Huff evaded capture by moving away from San Antonio, getting married and changing her name to Kathlyn Regenia Rose, authorities said.
The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force Cold Case Squad started investigating the case this month and after determining Huff might be in Farmington Hills, reached out for help from the U.S. Marshals Detroit Fugitive Apprehension Team.
“No matter how many years a fugitive is on the run, we will hunt, we will search and we will pursue until they are brought to justice,” U.S. Marshal Robert Almonte said.
Huff is currently in the Oakland County Jail, awaiting extradition to Texas.
