Solis was jailed in 1969 after murdering Loomis driver Louis Dake after an armored truck robbery failed to go as planned.
Roberto Solis was convicted to life imprisonment and began writing poetry under the pen name "Pancho Aguila." Outside poets and artists petitioned the parole panel to award Solis remission as a result of his books.
Solis was freed in 1991. He was 48 when he bumped into Heather Tallchief, 21, at a bar.

Is Roberto Solis Still Alive Today? Where is Roberto Solis Now?
The veteran felon, who went by a slew of identities (including his poetic identity, Pancho Aguila), was never apprehended for the crime in 1993. If alive, Roberto Solis is now in his mid-70s, but his ex-girlfriend believes he is no longer alive.
When questioned where Solis is today, Tallchief said in the Netflix docuseries:
Who knows? I don't think he's alive. No, there's no way. There's no way. If he's alive, good on you, mate. You did it.
However, not everybody believes Tallchief would reveal her former boyfriend's whereabouts if she knew anything.
The mother of one has admitted that she prefers her locations to remain unknown to Roberto Solis if he is still breathing today.
But if somebody locates Roberto, don't inform him where she is, Heather said at the end of her second Heist episode.
FBI, Unsolved Mysteries
According to Las Vegas FBI Special Agent Grant D. Ashley, the heist was carefully plotted.
Unsolved Mysteries reports the agent stating that about two months preceding the robbery, Heather Tallchief applied for a position with the armored car firm.
And the inquiry had led them to assume that the entire incident, from seeking the job to the robbery, was organized by Roberto Solis in advance with the specific intention of conducting this crime.
