Caldwell man who escaped Charleston jail captured trying to cross into Mexico

Todd Wayne Boyes was last seen wearing khaki pants white sneakers and a dark-colored shirt

In a surveillance photo from instead the jail, Boyes was shown wearing a dark-colored long sleeve shirt and khaki trousers - which he had obtained from an unknown source.

First Sgt. J.T. Findley said 43-year-old Todd Boyes of Caldwell, Ohio, escaped about 5 a.m. Wednesday.

Boyes is 5'6, 220 lbs., bald and clean shaven, and was last seen wearing a white t-shirt, dark colored pull over shirt, and tan trousers.

Boyes, of Caldwell, Ohio, escaped from the Charleston facility Wednesday morning after managing to get street clothes.

Authorities are investigating how the bespectacled Boyes apparently managed to ditch his inmate jumpsuit for khakis, white sneakers and zip-up jacket and walk out of the jail at around 5:50 a.m. on October 25, according to the West Virginia Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety.

But it wasn't until 7 p.m. Thursday jail staff realized Boyes was missing.

During the resulting investigation, a review of the facility's security video yielded footage of Boyes leaving the facility the previous morning.

He was initially charged with attempted murder after Charleston police Cpl. The stolen vehicle was later recovered in Washington County, Ohio, but Boyes led police in Charleston on a chase that ended in shots being fired.

"Officials at both the Regional Jail Authority and the Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety consider the incident to be a grave and unacceptable breach of their core duty to protect their fellow West Virginians", a news release from the Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety said.

As of writing, it is still not known how Boyes managed to escape without jail staff being alerted. The ongoing investigation is focused on whether the procedure for these counts was followed properly. But he said they did nothing. During a 4 p.m. jailhouse visit that day, the client told Davis about the escaped inmate.

Davis told WCHS that he wrote the information on a note he handed to the guard.

Asked about the attorney's claims, Messina said Saturday, "We are aware of the lawyer's allegations, and have included them in our ongoing investigation".

Four officers at the South Central Regional Jail were suspended without pay in connection to Boyes' escape.
