CARMI, Ill. — Deputies in southeastern Illinois have captured one of three inmates who escaped from the White County jail early Saturday, but the other two — including a murder suspect — remain on the run. CBS affiliate WEVV reports Justin Bray, 28, was picked up late Saturday near Crossville, Illinois. 

Corrections officers discovered Bray, 24-year-old Zachery Shock and 61-year-old Johnny Tipton missing about 5:30 a.m. Saturday. Surveillance video showed the men running along an alley outside the jail about 3 a.m.

The White County sheriff’s office in Carmi, just west of the state line with Indiana, says the men used a pipe to break a hole in an outside concrete block and brick wall. The station showed images of the jail building with a large hole in the mortar.

Bray was spotted walking along a county road in a rural area east of Crossville Saturday night, according to the sheriff’s office. He fled authorities on foot and was later taken into custody in an oil field by White County sheriff’s deputies, the U.S. Marshal Service, Illinois State Police and Carmi K-9 unit, sheriff’s officials say.
