Inmate convicted of first-degree murder escapes from Payne County Jail

PAYNE COUNTY, Okla. - An Oklahoma inmate who was convicted of first-degree murder has escaped from the Payne County Jail.

Officials with the Oklahoma Department of Corrections say 34-year-old Patrick M. Walker escaped from the Payne County Jail on Thursday night.

Investigators say Walker escaped by posing as a cellmate and posting bond for the inmate, whom he closely resembled. Walker is believed to have that inmate's personal identification and may be saying that he is 'Charles Pendarvis.'
