An Oklahoma fellow who fled by posing as his cellmate and then posting the tie was captured by US Marshals at a motel in St. Petersburg. Louis, Missouri, completes a day-long manhunt.
Patrick M. Walker, who served a lifetime for first-degree murder, was taken in a Tuesday morning warehouse, according to the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.
“We deeply appreciate the dogged, unremitting efforts of the American marshals to take Patrick Walker into custody,” states Government Secretary Joe M. Allbaugh in a press release. “Fortunately, they could catch him without happening and he’ll be back soon Oklahoma. “

Federal Marshals said that he could fly to Missouri using a woman, Kansas City Star reports.
Walker, 34, escaped from the Payne County Prison in Stillwater on November 29. The authorities said he could go out of jail by challenging another prisoner called Charles Pendarvis, as he “resembled.”
Walker, known as “Notty Walker,” then convinced someone to post a bond for Pendarvis, and pretended to be him when a farmer arrived.
M that Elliott, a spokesman for the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, said that Pendarvis was “threatened” to give his ID to Walker so he could fly.
Director Allbaugh said he wanted a full report on “how one of our most dangerous prisoners could bind out a prison guard.”
Walker had been in prison since 2003 before his flight. He was originally housed in the Oklahoma State Penitentiary but was sent to the county prison for a court hearing after allegedly attacking a correction chief.
