BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) -- A Tennessee fugitive will be extradited from South Texas after authorities confirmed they have the man profiled last year on "America's Most Wanted."
US Magistrate Felix Recio ordered the extradition of 66-year-old Donald Edward Lynch, from Kingsport, after an identity hearing yesterday.
Fingerprints and a distinctive scar helped make the confirmation after he gave authorities a false name when he was captured earlier this month by Mexican authorities in El Mesquital.
Lynch faces 11 counts of rape of a child, 38 counts of aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor and five counts of aggravated sexual battery.
He originally insisted the FBI and Mexican police had the wrong man, telling reporters he was arrested because he was black.
