    After two days on the lam, running through the woods in circles and hiding in creeks and ponds to throw police dogs off his track, Timothy Wayne Murray must have thought he stumbled upon paradise.
    Breaking into an isolated mobile home north of Covington, set back hundreds of yards from the nearest road, the escaped St. Tammany Parish prisoner found all the things he had been without during his flight through the woods.
    But after taking time to gorge himself on peanut butter cups and water, shower and shave off his distinctive facial hair, Murray found himself on the business end of a .38-caliber handgun wielded by the property's owner.
    If Murray, armed with a steak knife, had taken "one more step" toward the man or his wife, he would have been shot, said the man, who asked not to be identified.
    Murray fled, but the property owner's 9-1-1 call helped deputies tracking the suspected killer through some of the most wooded areas in the parish. They caught him hours later, hiding in a wood pile near Bennett Bridge Road.
    As Murray, who bore the signs of a struggle with police in the blood that streamed from his nose and covered part of his face, was brought out of the woods, the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office celebrated the end of a potentially nightmarish scenario: a jail break staged by four men awaiting trial or sentencing on murder or attempted-murder charges.

    I wanna know how the guy with the knife got out of the house if he was in the bathroom and confronted by a home owner with a gun. He'd have to go through the home owner to get out of the house.......

    It doesn't say that the owner found the guy in the bathroom. It says the the escapee took the time to gorge himself on peanut butter cups and water, shower and shave off his distinctive facial hair. That could have been 15 minutes before the owner came home.

    He could have been in the living room, or in the hallway. He apparently had a knife and stopped his approach towards the owner before the owner decided to fire his gun, but we have no idea where in the trailor the escapee was. He very well may have had a clear path to an exit.

    Well, most of the world is outside of that trailer.

    This happened a few miles from my home. The inmate held up in the guys trailer overnight. He took a shower, shaved, and ate dinner. at some point the owners came home and saw the window open. He told his wife to stay in the car. He walked around the trailer with pistol in hand checking the area. The inmate ran out the back door with a knife in hand. The homeowner aimed for him and told him not to come any closer. The inmate ran into the woods after he dropped his knife. Homeowner called sheriffs office. a k-9 unit found the inmate under some logs and debris. The dog went in and tore him up. The news showed him full of blood around his neck and face. This was from the dog.

    Makes it much clearer. Thanks for the information. Sounds like a good SD case right there, and if the guy ran off, so be it.
