(Editor's note: For 10 days in April 2017, residents in southern Wisconsin were on edge as authorities launched a nationwide manhunt. Here is a day-by-day look back at the search for Joseph Jakubowski.)

JANESVILLE MESSENGER -- The alarm sounded at the Armageddon Gun Shop on Janesville's north side shortly after 8:30 p.m. Tuesday evening, April 4, 2017. As police responded to the scene and began to assess the situation, a call came in about a car fire that soon would be connected to the burglary. The investigation escalated quickly and residents of southern Wisconsin remained on edge for more than a week while authorities launched a nationwide manhunt.

JANESVILLE MESSENGER -- Joseph A. Jakubowski, the 32-year-old Janesville man suspected of robbing a gun shop and mailing a 161-page manifesto railing against the government to President Donald Trump, had been attempting to "live off the grid," during his time on the run.

At a press conference Friday afternoon, April 14, 2017, at the Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport in Janesville, Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden said Jakubowski had been found under a tarp in “very primitive conditions,” looking disheveled and sleep-deprived.
