Front-page photos help capture thief

Coincidence.pngSpokesman Review:

“Our editors (Wednesday) night noticed the similarities in the two photos,” said Paul Emerson, Tribune managing editor. “We are not crime-stoppers here. It is just a weird coincidence. If it did solve a crime, I’m glad it happened. I have seen nothing like this in my 26 years as Tribune managing editor.”

A Tribune employee, originally alerted police about 3 a.m. Thursday to the obvious similarities between the men in both pictures.

The employee wanted police to see the front page before Millhouse did.
The employee pointed out Millhouse was clearly the man police were seeking, sporting his blue- and black-checkered jacket and dark-colored, hooded sweatshirt in both pictures.
