The 63 year old fugitive arrested while tending sheep in the Big Horn Mountains will be extradited to Mississippi, where he's accused of molesting children. A judge in Casper ruled Monday that Edward Eugene Harper should be returned to face charges in DeSoto County Mississippi. Harper was a fugitive for nearly 15 years after failing to
appear at an October 1994 court hearing on charges of conspiracy to commit sexual battery, child fondling and sexual battery in Hernando, Mississippi.
Harper was on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted Fugitives" list when
he was arrested in a remote area of the Big Horn Mountains July 23rd.
