Two Murders Linked to Arizona Prison Escapee

One of two men who escaped from an Arizona prison in July has been linked to two murders near Santa Rosa, New Mexico last Wednesday.

New Mexico State Police say John McCluskey was linked through forensic evidence to charred remains found in a trailer near Santa Rosa on Wednesday.

Las Cruces Police spokesman Dan Trujillo says they are watching for the suspects but aren?t assigning extra officers to the case.

Authorities would not comment on specifics but they do believe McCluskey is still traveling with Tracy Province, who has ties and relatives in Las Cruces. Police couldn?t say if Province was involved in the murders.

McCluskey?s mother, Claudia, was arrested Sunday morning. She is behind bars accused of providing financial and other types of support to help her son.
