That's him, officer -- I'm sure of it
A sketch of a suspect that looked more like a child's doodle seems, amazingly, to have led to the capture of a murder suspect in Bogota, Colombia:
The head is shaped like a rugby ball, the lips slide to one side, the nose is phallic, the ears are missing and the hair is having a very bad day.
The image, used by Bolivian police to hunt a killer, has been dubbed the world's worst photo-fit. Some have compared it a child's rendition of the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz.
But the mockery seems misplaced: police tracked down two suspects after the photo-fit's release.
