(Silver Spring, Md.)—Fugitive Robert Brumfield III, who was profiled in the February 13 episode of IN PURSUIT WITH JOHN WALSH, has been taken into custody. Brumfield has been wanted by the FBI and the New Orleans Police Department for his alleged involvement in a December 2013 heist that resulted in the murder of employee, Hector Trochez. IN PURSUIT helped to revive interest in the case, when Brumfield was profiled on its “15 Seconds of Shame” segment. Brumfield was located in Texas and is now in custody, awaiting extradition to New Orleans.
