PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Investigators are working to fulfill their pledge to find and arrest the people who helped two Florida inmates escape from prison using forged documents.

The two convicted killers are back in custody and were being grilled by authorities after they were captured without incident over the weekend at a motel in Panama City. Meanwhile, corrections officials are planning to hold meetings with court clerks to discuss how to prevent other inmates from using fake papers to escape.

The investigation of the escape by Joseph Jenkins and Charles Walker is now focusing on who forged the papers for them, who helped the men elude police after the trickery was discovered and who was coming to pick them up at the hotel in Panama City.
