An Alabama man accused of kidnapping, rape and burglary was back in late Sunday, just hours after he apparently pushed a window out of a county jail and escaped.
Jeremy Taylor was in the Morgan County Jail awaiting trial on charges including:
Investigators said Taylor apparently breached a window that was previously believed to be securely built at the Morgan County Jail. He was discovered missing on Sunday morning.
Deputies along with U.S. Marshals located the escapee in the Huntland, Tennessee, area in Franklin County, Tennessee.
At the same time, Franklin County deputies heard reported of a possible fugitive, responded and located Taylor and put him under arrest.
He’s awaiting extradition back to Alabama where he will be charged with second-degree escape, deputies said.
Investigators said they were looking into who may have aided Taylor and that additional charges were possible.
