Four days after the initial warrant was issued, FBI director J. Edgar Hoover made Angela Davis the 3rd woman and the 309th person to appear on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitive List. 

A massive attempt to arrest Angela Davis began.

This move by Hoover was for her “connection” to the The Marin County courthouse shootout. San Marin County Superior Judge Peter Allen Smith charged Davis with “aggravated kidnapping and 1st degree murder in the death of Judge Harold Haley”, and issued a warrant for her arrest.
