Wanted Man On The Lam Gets Sex Change

Remember the simpler time in America when infamous wanted criminals merely got plastic surgery to change their appearance, in an attempt to hide from the authorities? Men like John Dillinger, who in May 1934 had plastic surgery performed on his face at the home of a mob-connected, Chicago-area bar owner while on the run from police. (It didn't work, incidentally. Less than two months later he was gunned down by authorities after leaving a movie theater.)

Perhaps inevitably, someone has finally taken this one step further. According to THIS story, a 42 year old Oklahoma man faked his own death and got a sex change try to to avoid his outstanding warrants. Interestingly, I couldn't find any news article about this story detailing what his warrants were for.
