went to school with tucker all my life ! Yes he is mean and ruthless, as I believe he will try to kill again while being out. I pray for his ex-wife and her husband and his children. Brian has been a troubled person since a child and always looking for trouble. BEWARE don't let him anywhere around you or let him sweet talk you into letting him in.

Don't take this wrong please but why was a murderer and a another hardened criminal allowed to have rec. time. Not bashing the Sheriffs Dept. because these things happen all over the world, however this should be a wake up call Hopkins County. The news team actually found the gaping hole in the gate ? These guys should have had armed guards on the outside perimeter of the fence as well as a jailer watching from inside. That has always been the jail standards and rules in that jail, especially for murderers or people who are flight risks. I'm sorry but the jailers on duty and the administrator need to be repremanded for allowing this to happen, due to not following procedures. Now we have people's lives in danger and knowing Tucker he won't go down without a fight.

btw i dated johns sister in 1991 and knew john then...he was just a kid with sticky fingers..he has spent most of his life in prison and now facing 40 yrs im sure he dont want to spend the rest of his life locked up...i think they are wasting time looking around there...i talked to his mom yesterday and mentioned i looked up his criminal record to see if it was him....and every address showed cumby...even his early arrests...i said i didnt know they had kin in cumby....she said his g/f lived there...so its my opinion the g/f is in on the escape

Why had Tucker been in jail since 2011 and had NOT come to trial?
The legal system is slow when it comes to having a murder trial. If they act too fast there is a chance the prosecutors will mess up unintentionally and lose the case. In the case of Tucker he admitted too doing the crime, however his girlfriend is also charged with capitol murder as well. So they have got too have all their ducks in a row to get a jury too prosecute them both, so time is important in this particular case. Also the defense can ask for continuance every 30 days until the judge says no more time. Murder trials are complicated and the prosecution is smart too take their time in this case, due to two individuals being involved. Tucker and the girl will have to be tried separately and any holes in the prosecution could get them both lighter sentences or God forbid set free.

Well they are allowed rec just like other inmates. This could have happened anywhere. In a situation like this people should know what to do. Lock up and call 911 if you see them. We have to protect ourself also. Just Praying they are caught. They and a report of them maybe getting in a 18 wheeler in Witchita Falls.

Don't anyone let your guard down because someone reported them being possibly in Wichita Falls. They are career criminals and I'm sure they know very well how to throw the leads away from them. They could still be in SS or surrounding counties, as what truck driver would pick up a person that even looks like Tucker. Unless they forced themselves into his truck I just can't see it. I also pray for their capture and so justice can be served and our communities safe again. I might say safe as possible because they're so many horrific people in this world today and It's getting worse. May the Good Lord keep law enforcement and the citizens safe during this scary time. Tucker's on family is not safe because he has never cared who he hurt and anyone is a target for him when he blows up. I stated above that this could happen anywhere in the world, however the rules was broken and procedures was not followed. So now people will have sleepless nights until their capture, due too someone not doing their job bottom line. Sorry but that's just the facts and everybody makes mistakes, but this could cause more deaths and the county more money than the trial. Manpower and TDC manpower will run up a costly bill at the least, for the mistake of one low payed jailer and the administrator allowing the rules too be broken. The outside perimeter should have been secured by armed deputies while they was in the rec. yard. I'm sure the Sheriff will get too the bottom of this mistake and proper punishment will be administered.
