Search continues for escaped murderer

August 15, 2007

The search for an escaped murderer continues. Forrest Kelly Samples apparently used a makeshift ladder to go over two fences at the Broad River Prison in Columbia last night.

He was serving life for killing a Laurens motel owner in 1996.

A burglar who escaped with him was captured early today. Both men worked in a prison workshop.
