NYPD captures man seen leaving woman's corpse on lawn

(AP) -

Police have captured a man they say was seen wheeling a woman's dead body on a dolly and leaving it on the front lawn of a New York City home.
   The suspect, 31-year-old Anthony Lopez, was apprehended Saturday following a manhunt using helicopters and dogs.
   The NYPD says Lopez fled on Friday morning after an off-duty detective saw him wheeling the corpse, covered with a sheet, on Staten Island and tried to question him.
   Police say that acting on a tip, officers located the suspect in Manhattan and arrested him after a brief foot chase. They say he had shaved his head.
   The medical examiner will determine what caused the death of the unidentified woman.
   It wasn't immediately clear if Lopez has a lawyer.
