Pics Released Of Barksdales After Recapture In Arizona

For the time being the tale of Blane and Susan Barksdale has calmed down.

After over two weeks of searching authorities were finally able to track down the escaped married couple in Arizona.

Blane and Susan were originally arrested in Henrietta on May 24th while they were hiding out in an RV. They were on the run from Tucson Police on charges of first-degree murder, burglary and arson related to the death of a 72-year-old man Frank Bligh.

The Barksdale's were in the custody of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office until August 22nd when they were transferred to the custody of a private security transport service that was hired to transport them from Rochester back to Arizona.

They were able to overpower and escape the guards in Blanding, Utah on August 26th after Susan faked some intestinal issues and had been on the run until they were caught.

During the search Blane, who is a member of the Aryan Brotherhood, landed on the U.S. Marshals 15 Most Wanted List this week. The tipster that lead to the Barksdale's arrest could receive a $35,000 reward that had been offered by the Marshals.

They even brought out the helicopter with the thermal camera for the arrest!
