One of the prisoners, John Ray Falk, was recaptured within the hour. The second, Jerry Martin, was found several hours later hiding in a tree after a manhunt that included a helicopter, Stetson-hatted lawmen on horseback and bloodhounds. Martin and Falk were working outside the Wynne Unit of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice just north of Huntsville when they overpowered the officer about 10:30 a.m. along Interstate 45, took her weapons and stole a Huntsville city truck that was nearby, corrections department spokesman Jason Clark said. “They ran over the officer,” Clark said. “We can confirm she did die.” The guard, Susan Canfield, 59, had been a corrections officer for seven years, Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokeswoman Michelle Lyons said. After the inmates took the truck, they at some point stole another vehicle and ditched it, too, Lyons said. Martin, 37, had been imprisoned since 1997 and was serving a 50-year sentence for attempted murder. Falk, 40, had been serving a life sentence since 1986 for murder. Based on his record in prison, Martin was classified as a minimum security inmate and assigned to do field work outside the prison under supervision. “In this case, obviously, something went wrong,” Lyons said. She said Martin did not appear to be hurt, and would face felony escape charges “at the very least.” The Wynne Unit, established in 1883, is one of the oldest in the Texas prison system. It holds about 2,600 inmates of various custody levels.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!
