Facebooking on the run…

The days when jail fugitives tried to keep a low profile are over.

According to CNN, Craig Lynch was sentenced to seven years in prison for aggravated robbery, but escaped a British open prison in September 2009 and since then has been on the run.  The interesting thing is that since his escape, he has been updating his Facebook profile frequently.  Mr. Lynch comments on what he has eaten that day, who his next girlfriend will be and even apologizes for not telling his friends in person that he had escaped prison.  British officers are attempting to get Mr. Lynch’s information from Facebook, but have yet to know his whereabouts.
