For four years, millionaire murder suspect Peter Chadwick was nowhere to be found though his image was everywhere — in widespread media coverage, on the U.S. Marshals’ most wanted fugitive list and a police-produced podcast about his case.

All the attention and hundreds of tips paid off, authorities said, when the 55-year-old real estate investor from Newport Beach was arrested by immigration authorities in Mexico on Sunday and deported to the United States where prosecutors hope he will stand trial.

While Chadwick left leads for law enforcement to make it look like he fled to Canada after skipping a court appearance, law enforcement officials said they believe he has been in Mexico all along.
