Byron Perkins and his girlfriend, Lee Ann Howard, were captured in Puerto Vallarta on Mexico's Pacific coast, said Deputy U.S. Marshal Dawn Izgarjan. The pair was en route to Los Angeles, California, where they would face an initial court appearance Thursday, said Izgarjan. Perkins -- who had been awaiting a possible life sentence after he was convicted on drug, weapon and other charges -- got out of jail without bond in January 2006 so he could undergo testing before donating a kidney to his teenage son, Destin. Izgarjan, who was in the courtroom when Perkins asked to be released, said everyone thought he was being sincere. "He was crying. He was just literally begging the judge," Izgarjan said. "He told the judge, 'My son is going to die if I don't give him this kidney. He's so sick right now.' " Perkins, who had served seven years for bank robbery, even left behind a letter promising he would "come through" for his son, who needed dialysis. But on the final day of hospital testing, Perkins did not show up. (Full story) "You know he ran," said Destin's mother, Angela Hammond. "It doesn't say much about his feelings for Destin." Destin eventually received a kidney transplant from an anonymous cadaver donor."

      She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.
