An Idaho sex offender made infamous by his appearance on America's Most Wanted has been apprehended in Belize. William Gilbert Lightner, 43, served 10 years in Idaho prison for lewd conduct with a minor, and was released on parole this March. According to the Idaho Department of Correction, he cut off his GPS tracking bracelet and fled Boise. He was due to remain on parole in Boise until 2013. The precise details of how Lightner was apprehended by U.S. Marshalls in Belize have not been released; suffice it to say, apparently in Central America, a combover-and-moustache combo sticks out just as much it does in the United States. Lightner faces parole violation and failure to register as a sex offender charges in Boise, although more charges could be forthcoming.
