Most Wanted Fugitive Allegedly Spotted Sitting Front Row At Televised Baseball Game

So far, wanted fugitive John Ruffo has managed to keep a relatively low profile - until now.

According to local authorities in the United States, one of the most wanted men in the world was potentially spotted sitting directly behind the home plate at a televised baseball game at Dodger Stadium.

U.S. Marshals reckon they have identified the on-the-run fraudster from a Boston Red Sox vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB game back in 2016.

Wearing a blue t-shirt and sporting a distinguishable receding hairline and moustache combo, the baseball fan who authorities think is Ruffo can be seen watching on from one of the most expensive seats in the house.

The game he was attending took place way back in 2016, but it's understood police have only just come across this picture as their 24-year manhunt to find his whereabouts continues.

Back in 1998, Ruffo was convicted of orchestrating a fraudulent bank scam which earned him upwards of $350million.

He was ultimately found guilty and slapped with a 17-and-a-half year sentence, but never showed up to serve his time behind bars.

Instead of handing himself in, police claim that Ruffo headed straight to an ATM and withdrew a large sum of money before driving to an airport in a rental car.

He then disappeared off the face of the earth and hasn't been seen since.

Well, until now, it seems.

The baseball fan definitely has a striking resemblance to Ruffo, but the chances it's actually him are very, very slim.

Some people have already come out and claimed that the spectator definitely isn't Ruffo.

U.S. Marshals have now made a public appeal for help, asking anyone with vital information to come forward, adding that a $25,000 award is up for grabs.
