Authorities are searching for escaped prisoner considered extremely unsafe

The prisoner who is being held on three pending murder charges escaped from a private prisoner transport vehicle on the north side of Conroe, according to an article by the Montgomery County Police Reporter.

Authorities have captured Cedric Joseph Marks about nine hours after he escaped from a prisoner transport van earlier Sun., Feb. 3, 2019.

Marks, 44, has three pending murder charges against him and is "considered extremely unsafe", the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office wrote on Twitter.

Marks, 44, who calls himself "Spiderman" when in the MMA cage, has been all over the country during his adult life, records show. Scott and her friend, Michael Swearingin disappeared on January 4 and their bodies were found in Clearview, Okla., on January 15.

The manhunt is being carried out by the Conroe Police Department, the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, and the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, the article stated.
