A Florida man suspected of faking his own death has been arrested in Wyoming.
Fifty-year-old David Leon Lashley was arrested Monday in the Clark area near the Montana border by U.S. Marshals and U.S. Coast Guard investigators.
Park County Sheriff Scott A. Steward said Tuesday that Lashley had been living there under an assumed name, Wesley Byrd.
Steward said Lashley is wanted by the Coast Guard in connection with an arson houseboat fire in Florida which he allegedly used to fake his death.
The Powell Tribune reported that Lashley waived his right fight extradition to Florida in court on Tuesday in Cody, the eastern gateway to Yellowstone National Park.
It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
