Police in Russia have been looking since 2002 for the people who firebombed an official's house. The attack killed an official in the coast guard. They arrested two suspects, but were still trying to track down the third. That's when an investigator's wife turned on a television program and saw the third suspect, listed in the credits for the show. Now he's in custody. The accused contract killer had been working on costumes for the actors.
