Ronald Miranda, Wanted by the FBI for Murder, Hid in South Florida for Decades

In this week's New Times, we unravel the mysterious double life of Ronald Miranda AKA Richard Gamble.

Thirty-one years later, Miranda -- with a new name and social security number -- was finally arrested after threatening to kill his employees at a seafood restaurant in South Dade.

How was Miranda/Gamble able to avoid the authorities for over three decades? And what caused him to flip out in Florida City, blowing his cover after a lifetime on the run?
