After a 16-year search, the Los Angeles Police Department held a news conference this summer to announce it had captured a murder suspect on the department’s “Most Wanted” list.

A woman had recognized his face after she logged into the wanted section of the LAPD’s website and called a tipster hotline, authorities said.

Guillermo Torres was arrested in late July because police thought he was the suspected killer, Samuel Calvario. Torres, officials said, had adopted a new identity to evade police.

But Torres was cleared Thursday after DNA testing determined he was not Calvario, the man sought in the Nov. 9, 2000, killing of 31-year-old Daniel Felix.
