ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – There are still a lot of questions about how an accused killer could escape from jail.
Paul Garcia, the suspect in a car theft that turned into a deadly crash is back behind bars after two days on the run.
Authorities say Garcia and Blake McPherson escaped from the Sandoval County Detention Center through a rec yard fence Friday night.
McPherson was found within 24 hours.
A family member of Garcia reached out to Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshal’s Office on Sunday, saying Garcia was willing to turn himself in.
Authorities say they found him at a Meadow Lake home.
Garcia is charged with murder for the crash that killed 14-year-old Shaylee Boling and her mother Shauna Arredondo-Boling in Albuquerque.
He’s now looking at an escape charge as well.
Sandoval County Detention Center does plan to review procedures to help prevent this happening again.
“We’ll look into specific times of that breach and then we’ll know specifically when we can pinpoint that and make some procedurally different protocols for that recreation hour.”
Sandoval County authorities have not released any more details of the escape and haven’t said why it took so long to find out he was missing.
Garcia is now locked up at the Metro Detention Center.
