Real Name: Steven Hadley
Aliases: Richard Glenn Finley
Wanted For: Theft
Missing Since: 1983
Details: Steven Hadley worked as a manager and head teller at a credit union in Waterloo, Iowa. Once a well-respected and well-liked person, his co-workers and friends were shocked to learn that he had stolen over a million dollars from the credit union where he worked.
As head teller, he was responsible for ordering cash for the credit union, and on Thursday, July 21, 1983, he requested much more than was normal for the upcoming pay day on Friday. He also reserved a flight to Los Angeles, picked up a rental car on his lunch break, and purchased a wig and two suitcases. When the cash was delivered late that afternoon, he packed it into three large cardboard boxes in full view of the vault's video camera. Steve also tampered with the credit union's cash accounting system, which distracted several employees giving him time to carry the boxes out the back door. He has not been seen since.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the May 6, 1988 episode.
Results: Captured. In preparation for the Unsolved Mysteries broadcast, the FBI sent wanted posters of Hadley to police departments across the country. An officer in Friendswood, Texas, recognized Hadley as a resident, and he was arrested on April 25, 1988, under an assumed name. On August 11, 1988, he pled guilty to three felony counts, and was sentenced to thirteen years in prison. Hadley is now paying all the taxes for the money he stole from his previous job. He was released from prison in 1992.
