A DRUG dealer suspected of involvement in the murder of Meredith Kercher was arrested after an undercover policeman reportedly befriended him on Facebook and then tracked the use of his internet accounts to the German city of Mainz.
Rudy Hermann Guede, 20, who has joint Italian-Ivory Coast nationality, was arrested late on Tuesday by German police and handed to Interpol after boarding a train without a ticket. He left Perugia after Ms Kercher's murder nearly three weeks ago.
Detectives reportedly found Mr Guede's fingerprints on Ms Kercher's blood-soaked pillow and on toilet paper at the cottage where the murder took place. His DNA was allegedly also on the British student's body.
