One of Australia's most wanted fugitives handed himself in to a Sydney police station after more than 10 years on the run, just weeks after a close family member died, the ABC can reveal.
  • Michael Davidson Tillman, 49, was charged with attempted murder in 2010 but fled the Gold Coast while on bail
  • There is also an arrest warrant out for him over the alleged assault of another man at a Benowa pub one year later
  • After more than 10 years on the run, he turned himself into police in Sydney
It's understood Mr Tillman surrendered to police just weeks after his mother died.

The police investigation into finding him had continued for more than a decade, but efforts to bring Mr Tillman into custody had heated up in recent months, with relatives and associates being interviewed.

Mr Tillman is accused of the attempted murder of associate Troy Kiss.


Got the makings of a great story, the offence, the disappearance, living on the run/the close calls (lots of opportunity to enhance the story), why he chose to hand himself in.
