An accused murderer on the FBI’s 10-most-wanted list was arrested in San Diego after a resident recognized him from an FBI poster in a local post office. Brian Patrick Malverty, 26, using the alias Tom Louzzi, had been living in San Diego for several months and was working as a self-employed carpet layer, FBI agents said. Malverty is wanted in connection with the double slaying of Gene West, 47, and Ricky Lee Sims, 17, in Atlanta on April 23, 1985. Authorities suspect that the killings may have been drug-related. Malverty is being held in federal custody pending his extradition to Georgia.
