BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WHNT) -- U.S. Marshals have recaptured an escaped inmate Corey Davis, 30, after he escaped custody from a St. Clair correctional facility.
Davis was taken into custody in Bowling Green, Kentucky just after 3:30 am Saturday morning. According to authorities, Davis surrendered without incident.
Prison officials confirmed Davis concealed himself inside the trailer sometime while he was working in a furniture plant that is managed by the Alabama Correctional Industries (ACI).
Authorities said the trailer left the facility and was taken directly to the ACI facility in Montgomery around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday. Investigators found evidence today that confirmed Davis was inside the trailer and had concealed himself in an item of furniture. Officials said the evidence showed Davis left the trailer sometime after it was parked at the ACI facility.
The ADOC believes three inmates at the prison assisted Davis in his escape. Their identities are not being released at this time.
Davis was sentenced to life in 2017 for a human trafficking conviction in Lauderdale County.
Jessica D. Adams, 33, of Bowling Green was also arrested and charged with Wanton Endangerment and Hindering Prosecution.
