Image is an ear-e fit of kill suspect; CRIME.

Byline: ALLISON MARTIN

THIS guy shouldn't be hard to find - he's got no ears.

Police in Bolivia were ridiculed when they released the world's worst e-fit picture to help solve a murder case.

But they had the last laugh when they arrested a suspect.

The TV release of the crude image, which was sketched by a woman who said she saw a body being dumped and set alight, has become a YouTube sensation.

The body of taxi driver Rafael Vargas was found in March.

It is thought he could have been the victim of a drug-related killing or a crime of passion after his brother said a man came to the family house prior to his death accusing him of having an affair with his wife.

Police say they have arrested a man after he allegedly told Mr Vargas: "You're going to die and you don't know how."

The 23-year-old suspect, denies any knowledge of the death.
