A non-compact polyhedron P is Tucker if, for any compact subset K ⊂ P, the fundamental group π 1(P − K) is finitely generated. The main result of this note is that a manifold which is proper homotopy equivalent to a Tucker polyhedron is Tucker. We use Poenaru’s theory of the equivalence relations forced by the singularities of a non-degenerate simplicial map
