Three Inmates Escape Arizona Prison

On Friday night, three convicted murderers cut a hole through a fence and escaped from a medium-security northwest Arizona prison before kidnapping two truck drivers at gunpoint and using a freighter as a getaway vehicle. On Saturday, a team of police helicopters and dogs began an aggressive hunt for the men: Tracy Province, sentenced to life for murder and robbery; John McCluskey, serving 15 years for second-degree murder, aggravated assault, and discharge of a firearm; and Daniel Renwick, serving 22 years for second-degree murder. A woman identified as Casslyn Mae Welch, according to Flagstaff police, aided the men in their escape. The truck drivers, left at a truck stop, were unharmed. “The truck drivers were lucky to get away unscathed,” police told the AP. The fugitives remain on the lam.
