Man sought for 4 killings captured in Riverside

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities have captured a fugitive wanted for four Los Angeles murders after a detective spotted his photo on Facebook.

The Los Angeles Times reports (http://lat.ms/1utQXYn ) that 35-year-old Eduardo Rodriguez was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals Thursday in Riverside, where he'd been living under a false identity for five years.

Authorities say the street gang leader was indicted in 2003 for four murders, including a 2001 shooting that killed a mother of three.

Laura Vega of the marshal's service says Rodriguez worked as a carpenter, visited LA and Las Vegas while on the lam and had a fiancée who didn't know he was wanted.

Vega says a Glendale police detective spotted Rodriguez's photo on his associates' Facebook accounts and Rodriguez was tracked through photos on his fiancée's account.
