PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) - The
U.S. Marshals Service is still collecting information and following up on leads
in its search for a fugitive who walked out of a Maricopa County jail using
another inmate's identification two weeks ago. A deputy U.S. marshal in Arizona
offered no specifics on where investigators believe Rocky Marquez might be
staying, though work continues in Mexico.
The 33-year-old Marquez walked out of the sheriff's Lower Buckeye Jail with a group of other inmates who were being released earlier this month. Officials said Marquez took the identification of another inmate who was scheduled for release, shaved his head and dressed in the other inmate's civilian clothes.
Marquez facing charges of perjury, forgery, and witness tampering.
