Convicted murderer ‘apparently fooled somebody’ to let him leave prison

HOUSTON - A Death Row inmate escaped from a county jail after he obtained civilian clothing and a fake ID badge, authorities said.

Charles Victor Thompson got into civilian clothing and "apparently he fooled somebody into thinking he had some reason for being there, and they let him out," Harris County sheriff's Lt. John Martin was quoted as saying in the Friday editions of the Houston Chronicle.

Thompson, 35, of Tomball was being held Thursday in the Harris County Jail after he was resentenced last week in the 1998 shooting deaths of his ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend.

"He had changed out of the orange jumpsuit that inmates ordinarily wear," Martin said. "He may have been taken out of the cell block and put in the attorney booth in the guise of having an attorney visit."

Thompson had an ID card suggesting he worked for the Texas Attorney General's office.

‘It was convincing enough’
"It was convincing enough that the deputy let him out of the facility," Martin said.

Authorities and witnesses characterized Thompson as a narcissistic sociopath who turns violent under stress, according to the Chronicle. He was also linked with the white supremacist group Aryan Brotherhood while in prison, the newspaper said.



Thompson remained at large Friday and investigators were questioning jail employees. Martin said Thompson, who is white, 6 feet tall, and weighs about 230 pounds, is considered extremely dangerous and should not be approached if spotted.

Thompson was to be returned to the state prison system within 45 days, according to Department of Criminal Justice spokeswoman Michelle Lyons.

Martin said Thompson was convicted of capital murder in the April 1998 shooting deaths of Dennise Hayslip and Darren Cain, and had been sentenced to death. He was being held in the Harris County Jail after a jury last week resentenced him to death.

"This is something that's just unfathomable to me," Hayslip's brother, Mike Donaghy, 45, of Tomball told the Chronicle. "How can a convicted murderer get away like that?"

‘My heart died’
Hayslip's mother, Wynona Donaghy, 62, said she thought people were joking when they called her Tomball antique shop to tell her the news after seeing it on television.

"I said, 'That's the sickest joke you've ever played on me,'" she said. "They said, 'Charles Victor Thompson — he's loose.' My heart died."

The Houston Chronicle reported that Thompson was sentenced Oct. 28 in the killings of his ex-girlfriend, Hayslip, 39, of Tomball, and her new love interest, Cain, 30, of Spring, after a jury concluded his troubled background did not warrant a life sentence.

The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals had ordered the new sentencing hearing. A new jury sentenced Thompson Oct. 28 to death.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Escaped death row inmate captured
U.S. Marshals say Thompson caught in Shreveport, La.
THOMPSON
Charles Victor Thompson, who fooled guards with a phony ID card, is described as a narcissistic sociopath with links to the Aryan Brotherhood, a white supremacist group.

HOUSTON - A death row inmate who slipped out of a Texas jail wearing street clothes was captured Sunday in Shreveport, La., the U.S. Marshals Service said.

Marianne Matus, a Marshals spokeswoman in Houston, confirmed Sunday night that convicted killer Charles Victor Thompson was in custody.

No details about how authorities found him were immediately released, but Matus had said earlier in the day that they had received valuable tips about his possible whereabouts. A $10,000 reward had been offered for information leading to his capture.

Thompson, 35, had been convicted in 1999 for the shooting deaths a year earlier of his ex-girlfriend, Dennise Hayslip and her new boyfriend, Darren Keith Cain. An appeals court threw out his sentence, but on Oct. 28, another jury sentenced him to death.

‘Multiple errors’ aided escape
On Thursday, he was in the Harris County Jail awaiting transfer to a state prison when he was taken to a room for a meeting with an attorney, though not his attorney of record, authorities said.

After the attorney left, Thompson was alone. Somehow, he removed his handcuffs, changed out of his bright orange prison jumpsuit into the clothes he wore during his sentencing, and got out of the prisoner’s booth in the visiting room, authorities said.

Using a falsified ID badge, he got past at least four jail employees and walked out of the building.

Sheriff’s spokesman Lt. John Martin said Friday that Thompson’s escape resulted from “multiple errors” by jail personnel.

The escape frightened his victim’s relatives, who were notified by authorities and given police protection. Prosecutors had earlier accused Thompson of trying to hire hit men to kill witnesses against him, as well as members of Hayslip’s family.
