Authorities on Saturday captured two men who escaped from prison using forged release papers—apparently tipped off by a friend. Joseph Jenkins and Charles Walker, both 34, were serving life sentences at the Franklin Correctional Facility in northern Florida when they walked out (Jenkins on September 27, Walker on October 8) with the forged paperwork—which shaved 15 years off their sentences. Within days of leaving prison, they both registered as felons without anyone realizing the paperwork was bogus—until one of the murder victim’s families contacted prosecutors. A "close associate" infomed authorities that Walker and Jenkins were in the area, hours after their families pleaded in a press conference that they turn themselves in.
