KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Jan. 9 -- Two men accused of sexually abusing boys in Maryland are in custody in Knoxville, Tenn., awaiting extradition. FBI agents arrested Samuel Glover, 49, and Marshall Kirkpatrick, 32, at separate locations Tuesday, acting on a tip from a viewer of the television program 'Unsolved Mysteries,' which featured the fugitives in November.
The two men face extradition hearings unless they agree to voluntarily return to Maryland. According to Maryland court documents, Glover and Kirkpatrick face more than two dozen sexual assault and child abuse charges. Glover allegedly posed as a minister in order to win approval as a foster parent. He reportedly was placed in charge of at least a dozen male children. According to the FBI, Glover and Kirkpatrick were arrested in Maryland, but fled in 1995 after their bonds were reduced to $10,000. Agents believe the two men had been in Knoxville at least one year. ---
