After breaking out of the Barry County Jail in Missouri, some of the fugitives probably made their way to Kansas. Kansas is located in the same state as Missouri.
According to authorities and accounts from the media, the three inmates who escaped from a county jail in Missouri on Friday by cutting holes in their cell ceilings are still at large for the time being.
Inmates Lance Justin Stephens, Matthew Allen Crawford, and Christopher Allen Blevins fled from the county jail in the early morning hours, according to the Barry County Sheriff’s Office, and they are no longer in the area. The responsibility for investigating and prosecuting this matter has been given to the United States Marshals Service.
According to the statements made by Sheriff Danny Boyd to the media, the fugitives escaped through a maintenance door after crawling through the breaches they created in the plaster ceiling of the jail cells. Boyd claims that the third prisoner was only a few feet away from the two inmates who were sharing a cell.
According to Boyd, who was speaking to the media, it is highly likely that the three individuals came into Kansas from another state.
