JACKSON, TN (WAFB) - The search for two dangerous and desperate escapees from Louisiana has gone nationwide after evidence surfaced they may have killed a man to stay on the run.
No one is quite sure exactly where Ricky Wedgeworth, 36, and Darian Pierce, 33, are but much of the manhunt for them is focused on the Memphis area.Wedgeworth is from the Memphis area.
Law enforcement officials turned up their efforts a notch because the escapees were found in a stolen rental car. The man who was supposed to be driving that car, David Cupps, 53, was found dead in an Alabama Hotel. He reached trusty status, even though he tried to kill a sheriff's deputy after dragging him with a car.
The Louisiana State Police said he passed two sets of background checks to make it to trusty status. The other suspect was in prison for attempted murder.
"I can't express enough how sorry we are from Louisiana State Police about what happened to her husband. It should not have happened. It's hard to fathom from the perspective as a father and husband why someone would take someone's life," said State Police Colonel Mike Edmonson.
Edmonson says he has his troopers in Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee. The U.S. Marshals Service is also heavily involved.
