You can’t outrun death

You can’t outrun death

While reading one of only two pertinent articles in “Capital crimes – Seven centuries of London life and Murder” by Max Decharne, I came across an interesting piece of information about a murder in 1866. the murder had fled to New York. To track down and identify the murderer two groups consisting of Detectives, Constables and witnesses were dispatched on a month long round trip with there passports and tickets paid for by the magistrates court! 

Do they even do this sort of thing now a day’s?
