Interpol’s most wanted Americans

Wright was convicted of murder in 1962 but escaped prison in 1970. In 1972, he and accomplices hijacked a plane using a handgun stashed in a hollowed-out Bible and demanded that FBI agents deliver $1 million.

The hostages safely disembarked n Los Angeles, but the crew was forced to accompany the plane to Algeria. In 2012, a court in Portugal denied an American request to have him extradited.
