U.S. Marshals have captured the third and final inmate who escaped from a rural Alabama jail on Sunday, with tipsters helping authorities take the men into custody.

Demarcus Woodard, 23, was arrested at 11:45 p.m. Sunday at a Tuscaloosa apartment, the U.S. Marshals Service said in a news release.

Woodard, Gemayal Culbert and Justin Gordon escaped from the county jail in Butler, Ala. at about 2 a.m. Saturday after luring a jailer into their cell and overpowering him, authorities said.

Gordon was apprehended on Saturday night in the parking lot of a Tuscaloosa theater.

Culbert was captured Sunday at a family member’s house in Bellamy, Ala.

A tip line helped authorities track down Woodard, the U.S. Marshals Service said.

Both Culbert, 32, and Woodard are accused of murder, while Gordon, 23, faces charges of burglary, arson and armed robbery. Culbert and Woodard are cousins, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.

The jailer was treated and released from a nearby hospital following the attack, authorities said.
