Sheriff confirms search narrowing for escapee

Lauderdale County Sheriff Steve Sanders has confirmed that authorities have narrowed their search for escaped prisoner Curtis Ray Watson to an area just west of Cooper Creek just off Highway 371.

Sanders said the extreme heat has hampered the search as search dogs are struggling with underbrush and the heat as they stay on the trail of the man wanted for the murder of Department of Corrections Official Debra Johnson.

Sanders said the search for Curtis continues and authorities hope to have a resolution to the situation soon.
