Capture of Danny Ray Horning ends biggest manhunt in Arizona history

Fugitive is now on death row in California's San Quentin Prison

It was the biggest fugitive manhunt in the history of Arizona. During the summer of 1992, it was the lead story every day, on the hour, for every major news organization in the United States. But when bank robber and murderer Danny Ray Horning was at long last arrested by deputies from the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office on July 5, 1992, the only news organization in the United States to provide on-the-scene coverage of his capture was The Verde Independent.
