Craig ‘Lazie’ Lynch, a 28-year-old escaped British prisoner, has become an internet sensation overnight. For the past three months, the convicted burglar has been taunting police with Facebook messages and photos, daring them to find him. His last status update included a photo of him at Christmas, holding a turkey with one hand and flipping the camera the bird with the other. The caption read: “If any of you was doubtin my freedom. Here’s proof. How the f— could i get my Ahands on a bird like this in jail. ha ha.”
Although it’s unclear if Facebook has released privacy information to local police about Lynch’s whereabouts, the convict’s online RSVP to a New Year’s Eve party should give them a potential opportunity to nab him. (NY Daily News)
