Ten years ago today, one of the largest federal manhunts ended in North Carolina with the arrest of Eric Rudolph.
Rudolph ended up pleading guilty to a series of attacks including the bombings of Atlanta's 1996 Olympic festivities, an abortion clinic and lesbian bar in the same city, and an abortion clinic in Birmingham, Alabama.
A rookie police officer in Murphy apprehended the fugitive behind a grocery store before dawn on May 31st, 2003. He was unarmed and did not resist arrest.
Authorities say they spent $24 million trying to catch the man who is now serving four consecutive life sentences.
