LOS ANGELES Authorities knew almost immediately that Orange County multimillionaire Peter Chadwick had run.
Back in 2012, he was arrested in his wifes killing and surrendered his passports. But as he awaited trial, he disappeared.
Investigators discovered several books in his home with advice about how someone could change their identity and live on the run. Chadwick also emptied millions from his bank accounts and took cash advances on his credit cards before he disappeared, police said.
