Escaped Prisoner Left Trail on Facebook, Daring Cops to Catch Him

Taunting the police, O'Connor said, will only cause Lynch trouble when he is brought back into custody.

"He is also hurting the people around him, his friends and family who have probably assisted him or have harbored him, which is another criminal offense," O'connor said. "It is his own future he is ruining."

In fact, at one point Lynch announced he would turn himself in to avoid giving authorities the satisfaction of catching him.

He is the father of two small children and admitted to Channel 5, "At the end of the day it's my kids and my cocker spaniel that are going to suffer."

This week, Lynch's profile page was taken down and Facebook blocked him from posting to his own fan site.

For Craig "Lazie" Lynch, a life without Facebook may be a fate worse than prison.
