BREAKING: Escaped convict Curtis Reese, Jr. found

Posted: Updated:

Curtis Reese, Jr. has been caught near Pangburn. Reese, 33, escaped from the Tucker Unit on Monday. He and another inmate escaped in a water tank atop an 18-wheeler.

Authorities had been searching for him for days. He was found in a wooded area about two miles into Cleburne County on Thursday, around 10:30 a.m. The Associated Press is reporting that Reese was found in a cave.

Authorities believe Reese may have had outside help after finding parts of a cell phone and an abandoned truck with supplies. 

Reese was convicted of two counts of first degree murder in 1997 for the deaths of Eric Ogden and Lance Kelloms.

KATV has been at the scene all morning. We'll keep you updated.
