MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says a suspect in three slayings who was listed among the agency’s Top 10 Most Wanted fugitives has been captured in Texas.
The bureau said in a tweet Thursday morning that Antoine Lashun Adams was taken into custody in Harris County, Texas.
Police in Mississippi and Tennessee have been looking for Adams since he escaped a jail last month in Holly Springs, Mississippi.
Adams is accused of killing a man and leaving him in a Mississippi ditch late last year. He also faces two murder charges in Memphis. Adams was arrested in August in Texas and brought to a Mississippi jail, where he crawled under a fence to escape.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that deputies identified Adams after he was detained at Walmart for alleged shoplifting.
