3 inmates escape Missouri jail through air ducts

Authorities have captured two murder suspects and a third inmate who escaped from a southeast Missouri jail overnight.

Missouri Highway Patrol Trooper Clark Parrott says the three men were caught Tuesday afternoon while authorities were checking a salvage yard where one of the suspects used to work.

The men -- Matthew Brandon Cook, Kade Reaves Stringfellow and Rodney Joe -- were found inside the cab of a truck and were taken into custody without incident.

The men had walked about five miles to get to the salvage yard after escaping around 11:30 p.m. Monday from the Butler County Jail in Poplar Bluff.

Jail employees discovered the inmates were missing a short time later.

Parrott says the men are being interviewed. He didn't have any information about new charges.
