Simpson County deputies on the hunt for escapees

SIMPSON COUNTY–Two men are being hunted down by police after escaping from the Simpson County Jail over a week ago.

On June 22, three men broke out by breaking through a skylight and making their way onto the roof. The escapees were identified as Johnny Taylor, Russell Williams, and Shawn Bratcher. Williams was later picked up by deputies. 

Currently, a manhunt is underway for Taylor and Shawn, as they were spotted earlier Saturday getting out of a car by Simpson County deputies. It is believed the two are in the New Hope Road area.
