Scotland Yard Nabs Escapee Who Taunted via Facebook

Craig Lynch will no longer be taunting the authorities via Facebook, as the prison escapee, who spent four months on the lam while using the social-networking site to boast and brag of his exploits, was caught by Scotland Yard in southern England Tuesday night, Mashable reported, citing AP.

Lynch escaped from a minimum-security prison in Suffolk Sept. 23, and he had been using Facebook to poke fun at authorities, with postings including a Christmas picture of the shirtless escapee holding a cooked turkey in one hand and flipping the bird with the other and the caption, “If any of you was doubtin my freedom. Here’s proof. How the f*** could i get my hands on a bird like this in jail. ha ha,” as well as a status update that read, “Alright new one. In my situation where would YOU hide?”

Not coincidentally, Lynch’s Facebook page was no longer available.
