TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras — A Honduran newspaper is reporting that fugitive former disability attorney Eric C. Conn has been captured by that country’s Technical Agency for Criminal Investigation.

El Heraldo reports that Conn was captured as he left a restaurant in the city of La Ceiba, in the country’s northern region.

The newspaper goes on to say authorities plan to transfer Conn to the United States tomorrow.

The announcement comes following a day filled will speculation about a possible breakthrough in the case. There have been some indications that something had been brewing in the case, beginning with a sealed motion and exhibit in Conn’s criminal case this afternoon. A sealed criminal case was also filed in the Eastern District of Kentucky today, but it is not certain whether or not that has anything to do with Conn’s case.
