PULASKI COUNTY, MO. - Two Pulaski County inmates escaped from the jail early Sunday morning. Both inmates had requested a medical check before they attacked the jailer and stole their keys. The jailer was not injured during the incident.
The two suspects, James Randall Sherrell, 32-years-old, 5'6", 120 pounds, and Dustin Richardson, 27-years-old, 5'11", 180 pounds, escaped the Pulaski County jail around 1:15 a.m. Both men are considered dangerous.
Both Sherrell and Richardson are believed to have escaped with the assistance of 21-year-old Marlee N. Davy of Lebonon, Ill. Shortly after the jail break, a Pulaski County deputy engaged in a pursuit with Davy when he noticed both Sherrell and Richardson inside the vehicle. All three suspects escaped following a tire blowout on the County deputy's vehicle.
A separate Pulaski County jailer was also arrested and criminally charged with Sexual Contact with a Prisoner by an Employee of the Jail. Angelica Black, 22, is accused of having a sexual relationship with 32-year-old Sherrell during his incarceration.
The Pulaski County Sheriff's Department continues to search for information on the whereabouts of the escapees. The three suspects were last seen north of Richland, Mo. driving a red Chevy Suburban.
