Fugitive Extradited To Oregon After 15-Year Manhunt

Posted: Updated:

The Oregon man who was arrested in Bozeman last week after being on the run for 15 years is on his way back to Oregon.

Daniel Clement Chafe, 55 allegedly faked his own death in a fishing accident 15 years ago.

This happened right before he was expected to go on trial for child sex-abuse charges in Douglas County, Oregon.

He was arrested on rape, sodomy and sex abuse charges after being accused of recruiting girls between 14 and 16 years old to form the "Cobalt Clan."

Chafe was arrested in Bozeman last Wednesday. He appeared in Federal court in Missoula the next day where he waived his right to fight extradition.
