The U.S. Marshals Service released several additional photos of our escaped prisoner John McCluskey, 45, and his alleged accomplice, fiancée-cousin Casslyn Welch, 44. The agency has also promised daily updates on the duo, which I shall only post if there are any major developments.
The only new info as of the morning of Aug. 16 is the fine array of photos of the rampantly running duo dubbed “Bonnie and Clyde.”
The pictures could not only help with identification purposes if we happen to encounter them at the neighborhood Circle K, but they also give us a glimpse of McCluskey’s missing teeth and tattoos as well as how Welch looks with a mullet.

Where it stands as of the morning of Aug. 16:
The last credible sighting of the pair was Aug. 6 in Billings, Mont. They are still believed to be armed and “incredibly dangerous.”
McCluskey and Welch are most likely still traveling together, possibly still in a 1997 Nissan Sentra which is gold, grey or tan.
The Marshals Service does note, however, the two are experienced “over the road” truck drivers. As we have seen when the escapees hijacked a semi soon after the July 30 break from a Kingman Arizona state prison, they also have a penchant for semis.
McCluskey and Welch also like to troll around truck stops, rest areas and campgrounds.
“It is likely they are reacting, rather than taking deliberate action,” the Marshals Service warns. “As the manhunt protracts, it is highly possible they will become more desperate, creating increased danger to law enforcement and the general public. If they are encountered, call local law enforcement immediately.”
The U.S. Marshals Service put the reward at information leading to their capture at $35,000, although other sources put it at $40,000. Either way, it’s worth the phone call.
What do you think?
Are you sick of these two already?
Have you spotted them?
