      Police: Nationwide hunt over, Michigan escaped prisoner captured

      Michael David Elliot

      Police say a convicted killer who made a brazen escape from a Michigan prison has been captured in Indiana.

      Indiana State Police Sgt. Ron Galaviz says Michael David Elliot was captured Monday evening in LaPorte County, Indiana.

      Galaviz says a sheriff's deputy investigating a vehicle theft spotted the stolen automobile and tried to make a stop. The suspect ran, but authorities were able to capture him.

      Authorities say Elliot peeled a hole in two fences with his hands to escape from the Ionia Correctional Facility on Sunday night. They say he then abducted a woman and fled to Indiana, where the victim and her vehicle were safely recovered.
