Police have finally caught up with a 56-year-old man wanted in connection with three murders - after 32 years on the run.

The alleged killer, whose name has not been released, had been living under a fake ID - and had even served a prison sentence while cops were looking for him.

Police say the man and three friends allegedly broke into a house in the city of Kamyshin, in south-western Russia's Volgograd Oblast region, in 1985.

They allegedly beat up and robbed the householder before going on a drunken murder spree in which they killed two security guards and a man staying at a holiday home whose motorbike they also stole.

Three of the four men were caught but the fourth managed to run away and had been on Russia's federal wanted list ever since.

Police have now revealed that, after a long and complex search, they have finally identified and arrested him in western Russia's Udmurt Republic.

He had been living under an assumed name and using a dead relative's passport for ID, even serving a jail sentence for theft in western Russia's Kirov Oblast region.

Cops say he managed to stay on the run for such a long time because he kept moving from place to place, never staying anywhere too long.

The man has now been brought back to Kamyshin where he has been charged with the three murders. He is being held in police custody pending a trial.

The case has sparked a lively debate online where netizen ‘Anatoliy Viktorovich Sudakov’ said: "Doesn’t matter how long it takes, but karma will get back at you."
