Search Continues For Escaped Convict and Accomplice, Murders Suspected
August 10, 2010
US (ChattahBox) – Prison escapes, murder, conspiracy and incest; it isn’t a movie, it is a real life situation going on right now, with police continuing a major manhunt for a man and woman calling themselves “Bonnie and Clyde”.
The real life criminals are on the loose, after a woman helped her fiance (who also happens to be her cousin) escape with two other inmates and went on the run.
Casslyn Welch allegedly threw wire cutters over the fence of medium-security facility Arizona State Prison to her fiance, John McClusky, who was serving 15 years for attempted second degree murder, aggravated assault, and discharge of a firearm.
He cut through the fence and escaped with Tracy Province and Daniel Renwick, two convicted murderers who were caught earlier this week.
Holding up two truck drivers, the four forced them to drive 150 miles, then left them unharmed at a truck stop. They traveled for a time before Renwick was caught, then the last three split up in Yellowstone National Park, but not before taking a few lives with them.
According to the Telegraph, police say forensic evidence have linked the three to the charred remains of 61-year-old’s Linda and Gary Haas. It is believed that the trio killed them, robbed them, and burned their bodies in their mobile home. They then stole their truck and drove it 100 miles, where it was found abandoned.
Two others have been arrested for the escape, accused of helping to plan it out and orchestrate it. Those two are McCluskey’s mother (Welch’s aunt) Claudia Washburn, and McCluskey’s ex-wife, Diana Joy Glattfelder.
