Authorities searching for 2 escaped Missouri inmates

CARUTHERSVILLE, Mo. (AP) — Authorities are searching for two inmates who escaped Sunday from the Pemiscot County jail.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Monday that 27-year-old William J. Carter is charged with two counts of murder in the deaths of his estranged wife and a man.

The other escaped inmate is 41-year-old Joseph P. Latamondeer. He is charged in connection to a domestic assault and kidnapping case.

Police say the men should be considered dangerous.

They reportedly escaped through an air duct and then jumped a fence at the Pemiscot County Justice Center in Caruthersville.

The men were last seen running toward the Mississippi River. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
