TENNESSEE - The inmate who escaped from a prison in West Tennessee earlier this week has been captured.

Published reports indicate that Curtis Watson, 44, who escaped on Wednesday August 7, was caught very early this morning (Sunday, Aug. 11) after being spotted at a residence in Henning, Tennessee (shown at the red pinpoint on the accompanying map.

Watson had been able to acquire some camo gear and had changed out of his prison duds he was wearing when he was able to get away working as a trusty on the prison grounds.

He is accused of sexually assaulting and murdering Tennessee Department of Corrections Administrator Debra Johnson, whom he found in her home located on the prison grounds. She was a multi-decade employee of the prison and had been found strangled in her home when co-workers noted she hadn't shown up for work that day.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation had sent out an alert about Watson; apparently, home owners in Henning took it seriously when they spotted him, and called authorities, who were able to successfully bring Watson in after a five-day manhunt.
