Six men escaped from the Cocke County Jail Annex during the early morning hours of Christmas Day. Investigators say that five of the six are back behind bars. The inmates originally escaped through a bathroom wall behind a stainless steel toilet that had rusted bolts. John Mark Speir was caught at a home in Cosby and Steven Lewis was captured after a foot chase in the Carson Springs Community. The sheriff confirmed that two other inmates, Eric S. Click and Harce Wade Allen, were captured Monday. The Cocke County Sheriff’s Office said Allen was taken into custody by undercover narcotics officers. At 8:05 p.m. Monday, escaped inmate John Shehee turned himself in to Cocke County authorities. Investigators said his father helped deputies by coaxing Shehee to turn himself in. David Wayne Frazier is still at large.
