A television station in Texas is reporting that there has been a confirmed sighting of accused murderer Justin Patrick Welch, who escaped from custody this morning and is the subject of a nationwide manhunt.
A spokesperson for the Texas Department of Public Safety, however, could not verify that report.
"I don't know where that came from. I can't confirm that," Tom Vinger said, adding that the department is monitoring the situation.
KCBD -TV reported Welch was seen in Amarillo a few hours after overpowering a guard, stabbing him and taking his gun. Welch then shot twice at a second, unarmed, guard and took off in the white transport van.
