An MMA fighter who was on the run after making a break from a prison van has been found hiding inside a bin.
Cedric Joseph Marks made his bid for freedom on foot on Sunday morning when guards stopped for a McDoanld's.
Police launched a man hunt after the 44-year-old suspect in three murders escaped on foot.
Marks had a warrant out for his arrest over the murders of Michael Swearingen, 32, and Jenna Scott, 28, in Temple Texas.
He is also a person of interest in the disappearance of April Pease in 2009, reports the Washington Post.
