Two of the three men who escaped from the Smith County jail Sunday are back in custody, but Terry Bynum, who also escaped last October when he broke away from deputy while being taken from court to jail, is still at large.
Sheriff Charlie Crumpton says he doesn't consider Bynum dangerous, but has set up a perimeter in rural Smith County, northwest of Raleigh to try and contain him.
Two of the men escaped around 10:15 Sunday morning by scaling a 12-foot razor wire fence. The Third man, who was a trusty, met the other two outside the facility.
Sheriff Crumpton says the fence has four layers of razor wire on top of it for a total of about sixteen feet, adding that he thinks Bynum may have injured himself climbing over it.
Crumpton says they put a mattress over the wire to help them escape.
William Burnham was captured just a few hours after he escaped and Gregory Jones was captured overnight.
The Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks is helping with the search along with the Mize and Raleigh Police Departments, the Rankin County Sheriff's Office, the Mississippi Highway Patrol and the Mississippi Department of Corrections.
