The FBI’s Most Wanted List has existed since 1949 and has featured over 500 people. Eight of them were women, including the very first one Ruth Eisemann-Schier, the first of these women. In 1968, she and her boyfriend kidnapped a construction heiress and buried her alive for 80 hours for $500,000 ransom. Darling. The heiress survived, and Eisemann-Schier was caught 79 days after being put on the Most Wanted List (her boyfriend was caught long before that — amateur), spent four years in prison, and was then deported back to Honduras. Read about the other seven at Mental Floss.
