BOSTON (Reuters) - Fugitive former hedge fund manager Samuel Israel III surrendered to police in Massachusetts on Wednesday, police said, ending a weeks-long manhunt for the man who staged his own death to avoid a 20-year prison sentence.
"He surrendered at 9:30 this morning," said Peter Coe, dispatcher with the Southwick police, who referred further questions to the U.S. Marshals service. Israel surrendered in Southwick, about two hours' drive west of Boston, he said.
