Sir Peter Blakes Killer Captured

EXCERPT
"One of the fugitive killers of record-breaking yachtsman Sir Peter Blake has been captured by police after more than 15 years on the run.

Jose Irandir Cardoso was arrested after military police who intercepted him at a routine stop on the Brazilian island of Marajo found he was carrying his brother's ID and discovered his true identity after checking his fingerprints at a local station.

Cardoso, one of the Amazon pirates jailed over the December 5, 2001 killing of Kiwi hero Blake, vanished after being sentenced to 32 years in prison.

Local reports said he had been on the run for 16 years."

Re: Sir Peter Blakes Killer Captured

Glad they finally got the guy! Better late than never. I recently saw a documentary on Peter Blakes and was very impressed. That man was one hell of a sailor, and would surely have had many more great accomplishments if allowed the time. Shame a criminal of all things ended his legacy. Thank you for the news Steady Hand.
