This is the second day now and no sign of the two who broke out of Hopkins Co jail. (only their jail clothing) Parents here are a bit nervous as all
of the schools have been locked down for precautions. The local police have said to keep all of our doors and windows locked and has urged us all to
stay inside until further notice or until they have been caught.
Really?? I mean they have probably found a good hiding place by now. Or maybe have gotten as far as Mexico if they managed to get a ride before their
names and pictures were plastered all over the national news.
People here are pretty upset that these inmates easily escaped out of an opening in a chain link fence from the rec yard.
Now im finding
out this is not the first time Hopkins County jail has had inmates escape. I think maybe there is a problem here folks.. Urrr Durr??
Anyway, I thought it may be an interesting thread to start since it is happening right here in my neighborhood. I will try and keep it updated as my
local news comes in with any new info or videos. You can go to this link below and read more..
The Hopkins County Sheriff's Office says the two men escaped on Tuesday. Both are career criminals and are considered dangerous, and may be armed.
Hopkins County Sheriff's Department said, Brian Allen Tucker, 45, and John Marlin King, 39, escaped from the jail on Tuesday morning. Tucker was
awaiting trial for capital murder, King had been indicted for evading arrest. The men were in a recreation yard when they manage to escape.
If you see either of the fugitives, you should not approach them, but call 911. Anyone with tips, clues or anonymous tips should call Lake Country
Crime Stoppers at 903-885-2020. A reward is being offered for the information leading to the arrest of both suspects. "You never know what's going
through these guys' minds. They may be looking for some house to break in to get clothes or they may be trying to find cars or car keys or something
like that," Sergeant Cummings said.
