On September 25, 2013, a man who escaped from a California prison in 1977 was taken into custody at his home in Jessieville, Arkansas, where he had been residing under an assumed name.  Michael Ray Morrow scaled a fence at the California Institute for Men in Chino some 36 years earlier and was living as Carl Frank Wilson, a church-going grandfather.  New technology was able to match Morrow’s fingerprints to those of his alias from a 1984 arrest.  Morrow, now 70, was extradited to California.
