The Islamic State militant group released a video Tuesday that it claimed shows the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff.
An East Baton Rouge Parish
inmate who escaped from his job at a Central substation last week has been captured.
Officials with the Sheriff's office say a deputy
with the U.S. Marshal's Task Force caught
Joseph Pomares at a McDonalds located at Highway 43 and Interstate 12 after a
short chase Sunday evening.
Pomares had been in prison
since April 5 for unauthorized use of an access card and illegal possession of
stolen items. He escaped on May 19.
He was booked into Livingston
Parish prison as a fugitive and transported to EBR parish prison Tuesday. He
has been charged with simple escape.
