For these perpetrators, their stories may be different, but their motives are always the same - to stay out of prison and live life on the lam. The people profiled in "I (ALMOST) GOT AWAY WITH IT" evaded justice for years, sometimes decades, by using their families, fake identification and even violence to avoid capture.
