Escaped Murder Suspect Who Fled Through Open Door in Missouri Back in Custody

A search for him was underway when he was apprehended, according to authorities.

— -- Police have apprehended an inmate who is accused of killing one man and seriously injuring another after he broke out of a jail in Texas County, Missouri, on Monday night, according to a report in The Houston Herald, an area paper.

A representative for the Texas County Sheriff's Office told ABC News this morning that the department had been looking for Daniel Campbell, 39, who escaped from the county jail between 5:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Monday through a door left open.

Yesterday, Sheriff James Sigman told ABC affiliate KSPR in Missouri that Campbell bolted through the door while construction work was being done at the jail.

He was wearing an orange and white jail uniform and no shoes at the time, KSPR reported.

Campbell has been charged with first-degree murder for the death of Billy Bishop II, 38, and first-degree assault for injuries to William Dumboski, 55.

The Houston Herald reported that a Missouri State Highway Patrol helicopter crew first spotted Campbell and that he came out of a wooded area with his hands up this morning a little after 10.

Correction: An earlier report referred to ABC's local Missouri affiliate as KY3. It is KSPR.
