Prison Escapee Back in Custody in Farmington


Farmington, MO – A convicted rapist who escaped the Farmington prison on Friday is back in custody. Searchers found Nicholas Stillman in only his underwear in a dumpster yesterday in Ste. Genevieve.

He had apparently hid inside the dumpster, which was loaded onto a garbage truck and hauled away.

He's being treated for exposure to the cold. He was serving five years for rape and now could face escape charges.

The 41-year-old inmate was a dock worker in the kitchen of the prison.
