Bloomberg: Samuel Israel, the fugitive hedge-fund firm founder convicted of directing a $400 million fraud at Bayou Group LLC, surrendered in Massachusetts, almost a month after fleeing instead of starting his 20-year prison sentence.

Southwick, near the Connecticut border, is about 117 miles from where Israel disappeared in New York the day he was to report to a federal prison northwest of Boston.
