A suspected serial killer, wanted in three states, was captured by simply paging him over an intercom at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, according to Atlanta police.

Authorities in Atlanta arrested a man in connection with a three-state serial stabbing spree.

Michigan State Police had told Atlanta authorities Elias Abuelazam was waiting at Gate E-17 for a 10:15 p.m. Delta Air Lines flight Wednesday. He had a ticket to Tel Aviv, about 20 minutes from the town where his family lives in Ramleh, a mixed Arab-Jewish town in the center of Israel.

After being paged, Abuelazam, carrying an expired Israeli passport, simply walked up to the ticket counter at the gate, where four uniformed Atlanta police officers were waiting to take him into custody.

Isn't it odd how things work out? He goes on a killing spree, spanning 3 states and then steps forward when his name is called. I feel so bad for all of these men and their families.

Can you travel on an expired passport?
