Paul A. Moses finally slipped up big-time, according to Joplin police.
He applied for Social Security benefits this summer in San Diego.
A fugitive from justice in the killing of a Joplin woman 29 years ago, Moses made the mistake of seeking benefits using his real name and Social Security number. His application tripped an alert in an FBI database long on memory when it comes to unlawful flight to avoid prosecution for murder.
The FBI informed Joplin police that Moses appeared to be living somewhere in San Diego.
