Answer: Force majeure

The Bowdens were horrified when they saw the bodies of their housekeeper and private detective, but when Sam slipped and fell in Kersek's blood, he became hysterical. He grabbed Kersek's gun and fired aimlessly into the night. Leigh pulled him away from the porch and closed the door. She feared Max was still out there. Sam and his family left their house and Sam told Lt. Elgart what happened from a pay phone.

He told Sam they were fugitives because they fled from the crime scene.

14. How did Max Cady finally meet his demise?

From Quiz "Cape Fear" : Evil Demanded Justice

Answer: He drowned.

Max followed the Bowden family on the river. Max forced Sam at gun point to confess to what he did in 1977. The boat became very rocky and the waters were rough because of a squall. Eventually, the Bowden family were able to jump off the boat and before Sam jumped off, he hand-cuffed Max's ankle to a railing that was still attached to part of the boat. In the end, Max Cady stared at Sam until the water went over his head. Max Cady was never a topic for discussion within the Bowden family again.
