After the indictment, Rusch / Reeves abandoned his wife and daughter and fled to Panama. When he landed at Tocumen Airport in Panama, officials were waiting for him at the end of the jetway. He was arrested and extradited back to the United States. Upon arriving in Florida, they used “diesel therapy” on a bus until he got to Florence, Arizona.
