John MacCormack: Express-News
A twice-convicted rapist facing life in prison remained at large Thursday after dashing through an unlocked door at the Jim Hogg County Sheriff's Office late Tuesday night.
Abel Morin, 24, of San Diego, Texas, who was sentenced to five concurrent life terms in prison on Monday, has not been spotted since he escaped shortly before midnight in Hebbronville while being moved between cells.
Authorities advise anyone who sees the heavily tattooed Abel Morin to call police immediately. He's considered extremely dangerous.
"We're looking into why the door was open. The jailer assumed the door was locked. This guy saw it cracked open and went for it," he said.
