2 Mexican inmates flee Texas prison
HOUSTON (AP) - Two Texas prison escapees from Mexico are still
on the run.
Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokeswoman Michelle Lyons
says the search continued Wednesday for the escaped inmates.
Jose Bustos-Diaz and Octavio Ramos Lopez turned up missing
Tuesday during a routine count at the Briscoe Unit, in Frio County
about 75 miles southwest of San Antonio. The pair apparently cut
through a perimeter fence.
Bustos-Diaz was serving 35 years for murder in Harris County.
Lopez, who was convicted in Hidalgo County, was serving 20 years
for two counts of aggravated kidnapping and 12 years for possession
of cocaine and possession with intent to deliver cocaine.
