COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – The last two of the Texas fugitives, feared as armed and dangerous, gave up peacefully in Colorado on Wednesday.
Patrick Murphy, 39, and Donald Newbury, 38, exited a hotel room backwards with their shirts off after police allowed them to be interviewed by a local television station.
During the interview, they degraded the Texas penal system. However, they expressed no sorrow for their alleged involvement in shooting a police officer in Texas.
"All of us in our heart of hearts believed this could have ended up in a gun battle. We are elated with the outcome," mark Mershon, special agent in charge (FBI) of Colorado, said after the 5 hours and 45 minutes of negotiations.
