Yesterday morning, Deputy U.S. Marshals arrested Edward Baughman, 56, in Mesa, AZ. In October 2008 a warrant was issued in Oklahoma City for the arrest of Edward Baughman for Rape. Shortly after being contacted by Oklahoma authorities regarding the incident Edward Baughman fled Oklahoma and his run from the law spanned three states in his attempt to avoid capture.
It is alleged that Baughman repeatedly raped a 12 year-old girl, impregnating her. After the allegations were made Baughman was contacted by authorities in Oklahoma, after initially cooperating with law enforcement Baughman subsequently fled. In November 2008 the Oklahoma City Metro Fugitive Task Force began hunting for Baughman and recently developed information that indicated that Baughman was residing in the Phoenix area. 
This morning Baughman’s run from the law ended when Deputy U.S. Marshals captured him in a residence in the 8600 block of E. Main St in Mesa, AZ. Baughman was arrested without incident and is currently awaiting extradition back to Oklahoma.
