    In this photo taken Tuesday, May 29, 2012, Leon Rozio pets his dog Peggy at his home in Miami. Rozio, 68, a former jewelry salesman, retired after he was robbed of more than $160,000 in 2008 in Boca Raton, Fla. He was waiting in his car while his partner was in the jewelry store when at least three men busted out the windows. One reached in and grabbed a small duffel bag of jewelry. Rozio fired his pistol at their car, which he said tried to run him over. One of the men was fatally wounded, but Rozio wasn?t charged because the shooting was deemed self-defense. He left the business at his family?s urging. (AP Photo/Alan Diaz)

    King County Sheriff's deputy Troy Chaffee talks about tracking murder suspect Peter Keller days earlier in the hills behind him, Monday, April 30, 2012, near North Bend, Wash. Keller spent eight years carving his hole in the side of the mountain, camouflaging the rugged underground bunker with ferns and sticks and stocking it with a generator and ammunition boxes sealed in Ziploc bags. Suspected in the deaths of his wife, daughter and pets last weekend, he headed there prepared for the long haul with high-powered rifles, scope and body armor. Police pumped in tear gas, called for him over bullhorns, and, after 22 hours, set off explosives along the top of the bunker Saturday. He was found dead of a self-inflicted gun shot.
