The Oxford University treasurer suspected of murdering a hairdresser in Chicago has been caught by police more than 2,000 miles from the crime scene after a US-wide manhunt. Andrew Warren, 56, also surrendered to police in neighboring San Francisco.

Anthony Guglielmi, a spokesman for the Chicago Police Department, said the hunt for Wyndham Lathem and Andrew Warren has "intensified and narrowed" and that investigators think they know where the men are or are heading.

The suspects in the death of Trenton Cornell-Duranleau are now awaiting extradition to IL.

Before the body was found, the pair made a $1,000 donation in the victim's name at the public library in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.

"We got word within the hour that they have both been captured and are in police custody".

Lathem was arrested in Oakland and Warren was taken into custody in San Francisco, the Chicago Tribune reported.

"Whatever the circumstances, we would urge him to contact the United States authorities as soon as possible, in the best interests of everyone concerned".

Drinking alcohol four times a week reduces risk of diabetes, study says
Drinking some types of alcohol up to four times a week can significantly protect against diabetes , a study has suggested. The impact of the regular alcohol consumption regarding the Type 2 risk will differ from person to person.

Northwestern said in a statement that Lathem "has been placed on administrative leave and banned from entering the Northwestern University campuses". Arrest warrants for Warren and Lathem were issued Monday.

Chicago authoritites have revealed on August 4 that a video has surfaced in which Lathem reportedly apologized to friends and family for his alleged involvement in Cornell-Duranleau's death.

Authorities haven't detailed the relationship between 42-year-old Lathem and Cornell-Duranleau, who moved to Chicago from the Grand Rapids, Michigan, area after receiving his cosmetology license.

He said that once police had "suspicions that the professor and his associate may have fled the Chicago area", several federal agencies were brought in to investigate and a national alert was sent to police departments across the country advising that murder warrants were issued for both men. Both Lathem and Warren are being held on no bond status.

Mr Warren, a Somerville College employee who is in charge of payroll and pensions, was reported missing by his family to Thames Valley Police on July 25 from his home in Longcot.

"There is no indication of any risk to the Northwestern community from this individual at this time".

In a statement which was released to the media, she said: "Our Family is deeply saddened by the death of our son". We are asking that you allow our family to process and grieve this tragedy privately.
