Escapees thought to be in Yellowstone

ALBUQUERQUE | The search for two men who escaped from a private Arizona prison and their suspected accomplice has turned to the vast Yellowstone National Park area after one of the inmates was linked to a double homicide in New Mexico.

The U.S. Marshals Service said Sunday that information developed within the past two days indicates Tracy Province, John McCluskey and Casslyn Welch may be hiding in portions of the park that span Montana and Wyoming. Officials also think Province has separated from McCluskey and Welch, who are cousins. Province was serving a life sentence for murder and robbery out of Pima County, Ariz. McCluskey was serving a 15-year prison term for attempted second-degree murder, aggravated assault and discharge of a firearm out of Maricopa County, Ariz.

None of the three are known to be expert campers or have wilderness-survival skills, said Thomas Henman, supervisory deputy with the U.S. Marshals Service in Phoenix. “From the start, we believed these individuals would be staying at campgrounds and truck stops and other places like that. This keeps to that pattern,” he said.

The manhunt for the three intensified Saturday after forensic evidence linked at least one of the inmates to the badly burned skeletal remains of Linda and Gary Haas, both 61. The Tecumseh, Okla., couple were found in a charred camper Wednesday morning on a remote ranch in Santa Rosa. The couple’s pickup truck was found that afternoon 100 miles west in Albuquerque.


Police: Fake ad spurs giveaway rush

CHICAGO | A Chicago man is accused of taking family bickering too far by purportedly posting a fake Craigslist ad that said his sister was giving away all her belongings.

Police said the ad triggered a rush of bargain hunters to the Joliet, Ill., home of Paul Grachan’s sister, and that she received phone calls from people asking about her things.

A Will County judge last week issued a $3,000 warrant against Mr. Grachan on charges of misdemeanor disorderly conduct. The ad was posted last August.

Mr. Grachan, 37, said he had nothing to do with the ad. He said he has had a feud with his sister and that the two haven’t spoken in about a year.
