Elizabeth Anna Duke (born November 25, 1940) is a former teacher and militant fugitive best known for her involvement with a number of political organizations, and subsequent flight from prosecution. She is currently wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The criminal indictment against Duke was dismissed[1] and the arrest warrant quashed[2] by Magistrate Judge Deborah A. Robinson of the U.S. District Court, District of Columbia in June 2009. 

Personal life[edit]

Duke was born in Beeville, Texas on November 25, 1940 but has given her date of birth as April 20, 1941. Duke was allegedly a member of a Weathermen splinter group, the May 19th Communist Movement. The group claimed responsibility for a series of bombings of U.S. government buildings between 1983 and 1985, including the bombing of the United States Capitol building in November 1983.


Duke, along with her accomplice Alan Berkman, was arrested in May 1985 and indicted on conspiracy and weapons charges by a federal grand jury, in what became known as the Resistance Conspiracy case. Also charged as co-conspirators were Marilyn Jean Buck, wanted for her role in the 1981 Brinks armored car robbery, Laura Whitehorn, Linda Sue Evans, Susan Rosenberg, and Timothy Blunk. She was released on bail in July 1985 and in October 1985 she skipped bail and has evaded recapture ever since.
