Pennsylvania police searching for escaped homicide suspect find possible campsites near jail


WARREN, Pa. (AP) — Police searching for a homicide suspect who used bed sheets to escape from a northwestern Pennsylvania jail say he is likely still in the area and that someone may be helping him to evade capture. Thirty-four-year-old Michael Burham fled the Warren jail late Thursday by climbing on exercise equipment and fashioning a rope from bed sheets to escape through a window. State police say they have found stockpiles or campsites in woods near the jail that indicate Burham may have been staying there. Burham is accused in the May 11 killing of 34-year-old Kala Hodgkin, and a related arson in Jamestown. He’s also suspected of abducting an elderly couple in Pennsylvania before his arrest in South Carolina.
