Authorities in Warren County, Mississippi, are searching for a capital murder suspect who reportedly held a prison guard hostage to escape Wednesday morning.
Police say Rafael McCloud used a shank to force a guard to give up his uniform, keys and radio. McCloud then apparently escaped through a side door.
McCloud was charged with capital murder after the body of Sharon Wilson was discovered in 2015. McCloud and one other man were arrested driving Wilson's car.
