Feds: Mobster fugitive captured in rural Idaho

This 1994 photo provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation shows Enrico Ponzo. To his neighbors, he was Jeff Shaw, a guy who fixed computers, raised cows and enjoyed hunting. To the FBI, he was Enrico Ponzo, a New England mobster who vanished in 1994 after a botched attempt to whack the boss. His arrest in a town that doesn't even have an Italian restaurant left many scratching their heads. Federal prosecutors have charged Ponzo in the 1989 attempted murder of Frank Salemme, the former head of the Patriarca Family of La Cosa Nostra. (AP Photo/Federal Bureau of Investigation)
