MMA fighter Cedric Marks wanted for double murder escapes police van

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office and the Conroe Police Department are searching for an escaped prisoner considered extremely risky, who fled during a prisoner transport. It is unclear where Marks was being transferred to and from when he escaped.

Scott and her close friend Michael Swearingin were last heard from on January 4. He was being extradited to Bell County to face that charge when he escaped.

Earlier today Houston's KHOU-11 reported that Marks escaped from a prisoner transport in Conroe, Texas.

Marks may not be wearing a shirt, the sheriff's office said, adding that deputies found his shirt after he fled.

Marks had been in Kent County, Mich., jail for allegedly breaking into the home of ex-girlfriend Jenna Scott on August 21.

The woman who voluntarily admitted she drove a Swearingin's auto to Austin with the hope of concealing it from law enforcement agencies was extradited to Bell County.

When Scott went to investigate a sound in her home, she found Marks. She went missing in March 2009 while living in a women's shelter in Bloomington, and Marks got custody of their son. Like Scott, Pease alleged that Marks had choked her unconscious on more than one occasion, according to a court custody investigator. According to an arrest affidavit, she told detectives that she drove Swearingin's vehicle to Austin in an attempt to hide it from investigators. The van held 10 prisoners and two guards, although only Marks escaped, KCEN reported. T.J. Cruz of the Bell County Sheriff's Department told the Telegram.
