Death row escape06/11/2005 - 11:38:04
The search for a death row inmate who walked unnoticed out of a Texas county jail has become a nationwide manhunt as authorities probed whether he was helped in the brazen escape.
The US Marshals Office offered a reward for the capture of Charles Thompson and designated him a federal fugitive.
Officials also alerted airports, border officials and other law enforcement agencies.
Thompson, 35, of the Houston suburb of Tomball, escaped on Thursday after meeting a lawyer.
He was condemned in 1999 for shooting his ex-girlfriend Dennise Hayslip, 39, and her boyfriend, Darren Cain, 30.
