This is not like Boston manhunt but is underway.



An intense manhunt was underway Monday for a convicted killer who peeled a hole in two fences with his hands to escape from a Michigan prison before abducting a woman and fleeing to Indiana where the victim and her vehicle were safely recovered, authorities said.

Officials were stunned by the brazen escape Sunday night of Michael David Elliot, who had a record of good behavior during his 20 years in custody. He wore a white civilian kitchen uniform to evade security and blend in with snow at the Ionia Correctional Facility in western Michigan, prisons spokesman Russ Marlan said.



Once outside the prison in Ionia, Elliot, 40, abducted a woman and stole her Jeep. She escaped late Sunday when he stopped for gas in Middlebury, Ind., some 100 miles to the south. The woman's red Jeep was found abandoned nearby in Shipshewana on Monday.

At least one school was locked down, residents were warned to stay inside and officers went door-to-door in the area. But it's possible Elliott was long gone. Investigators learned that the Jeep had been parked for hours before it was reported, said Indiana State Police Sgt. Ron Galaviz.





Elliot was serving life in prison without parole for fatally shooting four people and burning down their Gladwin County house in 1993 when he was 20 years old, according to court records. Elliot and his accomplices were trying to steal money from a drug dealer, police said.

He was arrested a few days later and had a gun that tied him to the slayings. One of Elliot's co-defendants testified against him, saying he laughed about shooting the victims in the head.

Elliot was convicted of first-degree murder in 1994.

I'm just over an hour from where they found the car he was using. Type of guy that needs found before he kills anybody.

Serving life without a chance of parole makes this a dangerous situation since he has nothing to lose other than his life. They'll shoot first knowing his history. This won't end good for him and I pray some innocent person isn't in the crossfire.

If all the prisons in America were hard labor camps then he'd been too tired to try it. 16 hours a day 7 days a week. He won't last long. Lets just hope he doesn't rape or kill anyone in the meantime.

Well, that is sure to cost him a day or two in isolation. Glad it came to a close.

Has anyone ever noticed, the photos that get released? There's never any background to them. Why is that? It's always this DMV type picture. lol Kinda let's me know, these stories are false flags.
