Man in custody in connection with Hopkins Co. escaped inmates

Posted: Updated:

HOPKINS COUNTY (KYTX) - The Hopkins County Sheriff's Office says another man is in custody in connection with the escape of two inmates last week.

The sheriff's office is not releasing the man's name -- but investigators say he sent a letter with false information to investigators while they were trying to find Brian Allen Tucker and John Marlin King.

The men escaped Tuesday morning and were caught Thursday afternoon.

Investigators say he could be charged with tampering with or fabricating physical evidence.
