Pike escapee caught

Posted: Wednesday, October 23, 2013 2:00 pm

Authorities captured a Pike County jail escapee outside New Orleans, La., early this morning, ending a manhunt for a convicted rapist who went on the lam Monday night after using his brother’s identity in a ruse to briefly win freedom.

Lawmen found Douglas Earl Stevenson Jr., 29, at a house in Kenner, La., about 3:10 a.m. and booked him into jail in Jefferson Parish, La., parish sheriff’s office spokesman Col. John Fortunato said.
