Following their daring escape from the Barry County Jail in Cassville, Missouri, six out of the seven inmates have been captured, leaving authorities actively searching for Mario Che-Tiul, the remaining fugitive.
According to a Facebook post, The escape occurred late Thursday night when the inmates allegedly overpowered two correctional officers, rendering them unconscious and escaping their confinement.
The captured inmates, three of whom remain unidentified, were apprehended shortly after the escape, while Derson Pelep, Rolondo Saldivar, and Axel Agans were taken into custody in the early hours of Friday, according to WALB.
