For more than 50 years, a Boston man kept a secret that not even his family knew until just before his death in May.

He was a fugitive wanted in one of the biggest bank robberies in Cleveland’s history.

Tom Randele, whose real name according to authorities was Ted Conrad, a former Ohio bank teller-turned-thief, lived for decades under a different name in suburban Boston.  Randele had spent most of his life using a name he created six months after the heist in 1969. The U.S. Marshals Service is now piecing together how he managed to create a new life while evading authorities.

His stunned friends in Boston say Randele was a devoted family man and one of the nicest and most honorable people they’d ever known.
