prison1 Ariz. Prison Escapees Linked To NM KillingsTwo men who escaped from a private Arizona prison and a woman thought to have helped them have been linked to the investigation of a couple’s killing in New Mexico.

New Mexico State Police spokesman Peter Olson says Tracy Province, John McCluskey and Casslyn Welch have been linked to the crime through forensics. But he says “we don’t know how involved they are.”

Province, McCluskey and Daniel Renwick escaped from the medium-security prison near Kingman on July 30 after authorities say Welch threw wire cutters over the perimeter fence. Renwick was arrested in Colorado on Aug. 1.

The badly burned skeletal remains of Linda and Gary Haas, both 61, of Tecumseh, Okla., were found in a charred camper on Wednesday morning on a remote ranch in eastern New Mexico. Olson says a car belonging to the couple was found 100 miles west in Albuquerque later that afternoon.
