Wade Lohse Extradited To Lafayette
LAFAYETTE, La. (KPEL) — Wade Lohse, the 43-year-old Youngsville man who sparked a nationwide manhunt after he walked out of his vehicular homicide trial two months ago, has been extradited back to Lafayette from Philadelphia, Pa.
Lohse was re-booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center at about 2 a.m. Sunday morning, according to jail records.
Lohse was set to stand trial for the 2012 drunk driving death of 29-year-old Cacie Barras, but he walked out of his trial.
He resurfaced a short time later via a YouTube video in which he claimed his constitutional rights were being violated.
Loshe was arrested by U.S. Marshall’s in Philadelphia after he was observed walking out of a bar.
