Oregon fugitive captured after 15 years on the run
THREE FORKS, MT (NBC NEWS) — A fugitive accused of multiple sex crimes has been captured in Montana after 15 years on the run.
The FBI alleges Daniel Chafe recruited girls to start what he called the "Cobalt Clan" in the late 1990s.
Authorities said his goal was to have a large number of children he could rule over.
Prosecutors formally charged him with raping two girls in 1998, and he now faces a total of 18 sex crime related charges.
For at least the past six years, Chafe apparently lived under the alias "Zac Taylor" in Three Forks, Montana.
