Warrick County deputies, troopers capture Day, Helsley
NEWBURGH – Two escapees from the Branchville Correctional Facility were captured Tuesday evening after they crashed a stolen car while trying to outrun state police and Warrick County sheriff’s deputies.
Conan Helsley, 20, and Kent Day, 45, had been on the run since scaling a prison fence the night of April 4. They allegedly stole a pickup truck from J.H. Rudolph & Co.’s asphalt plant near Interstate 64 and fled to western Kentucky, where Day has relatives.
