US fugitive caught after updating his status on Facebook

Some people take to becoming a fugitive like a duck to water. They lay low, go out only in disguise, even create whole new identities. Others, it would appear, do not.Take the case of Maxi Sopo, a 26-year-old criminal in hiding in Mexico who not only used his Facebook status to tell all and sundry what a good time he was having, but also made the somewhat elementary error of adding a former justice department official to his list of friends.
