Escaped prisoner duo update: 'Bonnie and Clyde' photo gallery: Welch with a mullet, McCluskey tattoos

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?

    Someone high up needs to ask Mr. Ryan one question about the Kingman upgrade project to hold medium inmates as compared to their structural construction for minimum. This question should include: • Name of inspection team members; date, positions and unit assigned. • Results of inspections regarding – o Perimeter integrity e.g. double fencing, razor wire top and bottom, alarms, exit doors, key control, weapon control, towers, mobile patrols, detection devices, distance from fence line, blind spots, observation spots, o Housing control centers e.g. cameras, door locking devices alarms, exit doors, key control communication, inmate movement, and access to programs, visits, and escort procedures (day and night). o Physical plant e.g. ceilings sealed and not suspended, lighting, locking devices [logs and corrective action taken], sally port ingress egress, sensors, CCTV, tool control. o Post orders, policies and procedures e.g. required walking tours, searches, inspections, sign in sheets, training cards, o Staffing – post coverage e.g. 7 day posts, 5 day posts, collapsible posts, flexing, roster management etc. o Security meetings e.g. frequency, content, minutes kept, attendance sheets training o Internal and external security audits conducted prior and to the date of the escape. o Intake e.g. Screening and housing assignments

    The classification should be reviewed also, and my apologies if you mentioned it and I missed reading it.  Prior escapes have beenmade  by men housed in units not fitting either the unit or their crime/classification, regardless of the numbers assigned!  I’m sure there are frantic reviews occurring now!
