    SAYS HE'LL RUN NO MORE

    John William
    Clouser, the : "Florida
    . Fox" .who eluded police
    for 10 years and once was
    ;on the FBI's "10 Most
    Wanted" list, kept his
    word and surrendered
    Wednesday, saying "the
    fox will run no more."
    The 42-year-old Clouser,.
    who surrendered to o f f i -
    cers in front of the Flori- .
    da Department of Criminal
    Law Enforcement
    building, was accompa--
    nied by his attorney,,
    James Siff, and a writer,
    David Fisher
    One of Clouser's stipulations
    in surrendering was
    that he be permitted to '
    conduct a news conference.
    Officials agreed,
    and Clouser took the
    opportunity to protest his
    innocence and plug the
    book he is writing with
    . Fisher, "The Most Wanted
    Man in America."
    \
    CLOUSER, a police
    . detective for five years in
    . Orlando before being forc-
    .' ed to resign because of
    : alleged underworld connections,
    was sought on a
    long string of charges
    ; ranging from kidnaping to
    attempted murder.
    ; Siff refused to let him
    .''discuss the charges, but
    | Clouser nodded in agree-
    ment when newsmen
    asked whether he had
    been "framed."
    Clouser said he had
    always planned to surren-
    ' der and had tried;to give
    himself up to the late FBI
    director, J. Edgar Hoov-
    er, but Hoover would not
    deal: .
    :
    t: "The fact that I have
    been a hunted man has
    never left my conscious or
    subconscious mind and I
    have never really known
    a day of perfect peace or
    contentment," he said.
    He said he realized the
    life he made for himself
    in San Francisco where
    he married while a fugitive
    and his two sons by
    his first wife in Orlando
    were "too precious for me
    to abandon, so I decided
    to surrender."
    "BY MEANS of telling
    my story as 'the most
    wanted man in America'
    to author David Fisher, I
    hope to raise enough to
    pay for my defense.
    "...Gentlemen, the
    Florida Fox will run no
    more."
    A native of Chicago,
    Clouser has had eight
    known aliases, the latest
    being Dennis Roy Simons,
    the name under which he
    lived in San Francisco.
    Clouser, forced off the
    Orlando police force in
    1961, was' charged two
    months later with kidnap-
    ! ing, robbing and beating
    two theater managers. He

    , was convicted and sentenced
    sentenced
    to 30 years in
    prison, but won a new
    trial on appeal. .
    Instead of a trial, the
    judge found him incompetent
    and sent him to the
    mental hospital at Chattahoochee,
    from which he
    escaped, ' ..

    as (John) Dillinger,
    Clouser also
    1 is charged
    with grand larceny, assault

    The hostages were robbed but released unharmed
    and their car was recovered abandoned
