One bad guy still running in Mississippi... after authorities caught 7 others who escaped sometime overnight Sunday. Marion County Jail officials say today the men turned a piece of a bunk bed into a chisel and cut their way through solid concrete/steel-reinforced walls to get out.

They rounded up several of them some 370 miles away... and, now just one remains on the lam: 19 year old Eric Ball... charged with breaking & entering last year.

Cops managed to re-capture a convicted killer who was serving a life sentence and another inmate awaiting a capitol murder trial.
