According to the Warden Billy Howell at the Colquitt County Correctional Institute:
At 10:55 this morning, U.S. Marshals captured Christopher Burnette at 7425 Bowen Rd in Twin City, Georgia…near Statesboro. That’s about a three hour drive from the prison where he escaped.
A woman, who allegedly picked Burnette up off of 319 in Moultrie, while he was on a work detail, was taken into custody last night. She’s facing charges for what the warden calls a planned escape.
