Charles Spraberry was wanted in connection with the deaths of two people found in a burned camper trailer near Atlanta, Texas, when he was apprehended by the Beauregard Parish Sheriff’s Office just outside of DeRidder on March 25.

Now, Spraberry is the subject of another manhunt after escaping the Cass County Jail just before 8 p.m. Monday night.

Texas authorities said he used a handmade knife to break free and an active search is ongoing in the Linden, Texas area.

Beauregard Parish Sheriff Mark Herford said that as of Tuesday, his office has not received any information to believe Spraberry could be near Beauregard Parish.
