Robert Durst
When millionaire Robert Durst was on the run after jumping bail in the murder case of an elderly neighbor, a Band-Aid led to his arrest. Durst who is also under suspicion in his wife's 1978 disappearance got caught while stealing the bandage for a facial cut. Still wearing it on his upper lip when he was booked Nov. 10, 2001, (left) Durst also had shaved his head in an apparent attempt to throw off investigators. By the time he appeared in court in March 2003 (right), however, he had grown back his hair, was sporting glasses and a sports jacket and had lost the Band-Aid.
