FUGITIVE KILLS SELF AFTER PROMO FOR `MOST WANTED' AIRS

A fugitive from Oklahoma committed suicide after recognizing himself on a promotion for the Fox TV show "America's Most Wanted," authorities said.

Terry Wayne Hart, 30, shot himself in the head outside his apartment complex Friday, Lebanon Detective Mike Barbee said Monday. He had sent his wife out to get a pizza after seeing the ad, and left a note saying he didn't want to shame her, Barbee said.Hart was charged with raping a 15-year-old girl in Oklahoma City in September 1991, according to the FBI.

Hart was married last month, and his wife did not know of his past, Barbee said.
