They exist in the shadowy fringes of the law enforcement industry. Not affiliated with any agency, they nonetheless account for over 22,000 arrests in America every year.
HISTORY'S MYSTERIES ventures back to Medieval times to tell the dramatic story of the BOUNTY HUNTERS. Learn how they got their start and examine the challenges to their role that have been mounted over the years. Discover the stories of people like Edward Bonney, who made a living and forged a legend tracking down outlaws 'dead or alive.' See how a Supreme Court ruling has protected bounty hunters in America for over 150 years, and relive the days of slavery, when bounty hunters were continually engaged in tracking down runaway slaves (Harriet Tubman had a $40,000 bounty on her head).
Slipping through the cracks of law enforcement, this is the compelling story of the BOUNTY HUNTERS.
