Thirty-one years later, Miranda -- with a new name and social security number -- was finally arrested after threatening to kill his employees at a seafood restaurant in South Dade.

How was Miranda/Gamble able to avoid the authorities for over three decades? And what caused him to flip out in Florida City, blowing his cover after a lifetime on the run?
