Predator captured was Fugitive of the Week

A convicted killer and rapist who calls himself "Candy" has finally been captured.
Jerry Malone, who hadn't been seen in a year, was caught in Toledo Friday by members of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force.

Malone, 63, was convicted of rape in 1964 and of murder and sexual battery in 1993.

He was profiled on Channel 3 News as the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive of the Week in December, 2007.

The Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force considered Malone dangerous because of his extensive and violent criminal history.

"He has been involved in the criminal justice system since the 60's. He needs to be monitored and he needs to be brought back into custody quickly," said Deputy U.S. Marshal David Siler at the time Malone was profiled on Channel 3 News.

The law requires sexual predators to report their current address to the local sheriff and to maintain contact.

Malone did not and became a wanted fugitive.
