Jeffrey McMullen also known as Jeffrey Fredregill escaped while on work detail Angelina County jail this morning. "Between 9:30 and 10 the other guys, the inmates that were helping the work crew, they came up to another officer and asked them if they had seen this inmate, they had been looking for him for about 15 minutes they hadn't seen him in about 15 minutes," Cpt. Louise Marshall explained. The officers hadn't seen him either and his weed-eater was found on the ground behind the jail.
Since then, law enforcement throughout the county has been searching for him. Marshall's says, "The sheriff and everyone's been following leads. They've got a possible location now that they're checking on." After checking, that lead fell through, so the sheriff's office is still out looking.
