  • Jimmy Causey 46 was recaptured on Friday after escaping from a South Carolina prison earlier this week

Correctional authorities are now investigating how Causey's escape on Tuesday night from Lieber Correctional Institution went unnoticed for 18 hours, South Carolina Corrections Director Bryan Stirling said during a press conference Friday. He escaped around 8pm on July 4, but prison officials didn't realize he was gone until 2pm the next day, Stirling said.

A convicted kidnapper is back behind bars after escaping a maximum security prison using wire-cutters flown to him via drone, authorities in sc have confirmed.

U.S. Marshals credited a "thorough investigation" by SC authorities for Causey's capture in Texas.

Just like the last few days, some of the storms will be strong or severe with main threat gusty winds and heavy rain. The heat begins to build each afternoon next week, expect highs in the mid 90s by Wednesday afternoon.

Like the first time, Causey, 46, fooled guards by putting a dummy in his bed. According to the Post and Courier, he and fellow inmate Johnny Brewer "used toilet-paper heads made by other prisoners" to escape Broad River Correctional Institution in Columbia in 2005. He's now serving a life sentence for kidnapping his former attorney at gunpoint over the belief that said attorney did not do enough to defend him-which led to prison sentences in the 1990s-basically the plot to Cape Fear. "He will be in the highest security that we have for a very long time", Stirling, said.

The motel room in Austin where Causey was arrested is about 1,200 miles from Lieber.

"Everyone who assisted him, we intend on bringing to justice as well", Keel said. Causey used a makeshift dummy to dupe corrections officers into believing he was still in his bed in the Dorchester County prison, Stirling said.

Causey held a grudge because he got prison time in the two prior cases, according to testimony at his 2004 trial.

State corrections officials were offering up to $2,000, with additional money coming from South Carolina Crimestoppers, for Causey's apprehension. Causey cut through at least four fences with the wire cutters, Stirling said.

The latest incident further highlights their cries for the federal government to block cell phone signals at state jails and prisons. Officials are still probing exactly what happened leading up to and following the escape. He also had some type of South Carolina ID.
