PORTLAND, Oregon — After a 20 year search police finally found a wanted Oregon couple in Mississippi when the husband died and his wife used his aliases to make funeral arrangements.

A Mississippi undertaker entered the alias used by Leon Henry Shaw online then found Shaw was on the FBI's Most Wanted list.

FBI agents who have been trying to track down Shaw and his partner, Victoria Michelle Cravitz, since they both left Oregon in 2000. The common-law wife, Cravitz, had been living under the name Jennifer Larsen.

Cravitz made a court appearance in Jackson, Mississippi, last Thursday on a charge of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution and will be returned to Oregon. She waived a hearing to determine her identity, as well as a preliminary hearing, and was ordered transferred by the judge.
