Feds Think Escapee Changed His Appearance

By Beacon Staff

PHOENIX – A dangerous inmate who escaped from a Kingman, Ariz., prison has likely changed his appearance.

Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal for Arizona Fidencio Rivera tells The Associated Press they developed information that escaped convict John McCluskey and his suspected accomplice, Casslyn Welch, dyed their hair in an effort to elude capture.

Rivera says Welch dyed her hair blond and McCluskey has dyed his hair black. Rivera says agents developed the information through interviews with people who last saw the couple.

Inmates Tracy Province, McCluskey and Daniel Renwick escaped from the medium-security Arizona State Prison near Kingman on July 30. Province and Renwick were recaptured.
