ST. PETERSBURG, Fla (Reuters) - Authorities on Wednesday captured a man in Colorado who escaped nearly 32 years ago from the Florida prison where he was serving a life sentence for murder.
Frederick Barrett, 60, slipped away from the Union Correctional Institution in Raiford during a nighttime power outage on August 17, 1979
Barrett was convicted of killing a traveling companion on the Florida Turnpike in February 1971.
According to officials, he choked Carl Ardolino from behind as Ardolino was driving. Barrett and another man then stopped the car, carried Ardolino to a shallow ditch filled with water and held his head underneath until he died.
All these years and he still has his looks
(of course this was in Florida. When you read outragous news stories start mental noting where they happened. Over 50% will be from Florida)
