fugitive arrested in chicago's chinatown

When I first read this story, I thought it was about the capture and arrest of international murder suspect Nai Yin Xue, but it's another case entirely. Turns out, there's another Asian murder suspect who was featured on America's Most Wanted, and captured with the help of citizens who recognized him from a Chinese-language newspaper: 'America's Most Wanted' fugitive arrested in Chinatown, police say.

This week, Chicago police arrested Fu Lin Wang in connection with a California 1998 double homicide. They apparently received a tip from someone who showed them a World Journal article about the suspect, and told officers that he was staying in Chinatown. Wang is accused of shooting and killing his estranged wife and her son in December 1998 in Alhambra, California. Now you're caught, sucka! Who knew Chinatown residents were so vigilant?
