Law enforcement agencies from across Southwest Oklahoma continued their search Monday for an inmate who escaped from the Cotton County Jail overnight, bring his total number of escapes in the county to five. The last time 45 year-old Robert L. Turk was cornered by law enforcement officers -near the Comanche-Cotton county line - he forced a pistol into his mouth and pulled the trigger. At that time, he was being sought in connection with the June 22 shootings of Donna Devine, and Louis Slomba, who were shot at a home northeast of Walters.
