Keri McMullen of New Albany said she and South, who lived in the same neighborhood as children, had been Facebook friends for about six months before the burglary in March. After she posted the information she and her fiance planned to attend a concert March 21, two men broke in and removed their television, computers and other electronic equipment.

The burglars apparently did not realize the fiance, Kurt Pendleton, had installed security cameras. Jeff Firkins, a detective with the Floyd County Sheriff's Office, said South and another suspect, Kyle Bieber, 21, were identified on the tape.

Bieber had not yet been caught.
