Seven men are on the loose from the Curry County Detention Center.. Including one convicted murderer and one suspected murderer.

Here is how they did it. The men reportedly cut a hole in the roof of the detention center using hand made instruments. It was just before 10 Sunday night when guards realized eight men were missing.

One of those men was caught when officers noticed two people in orange jumpsuits running in the vicinity of the jail..

They were able to catch one of them... Victor Apodaca.

A press conference on the jail escape will be broadcast live on our sister station KZBZ (cable ch. 6) at 3:00 Mountain time, 4:00 Central time.
