CHICAGO (CBS) — The FBI said Wednesday the two convicted bank robbers who escaped from the federal jail in the Loop on Tuesday had more than a four-hour head start before a manhunt began.
FBI Special Agent Frank Bochte said security video from a South Loop building has given investigators a new lead.
“We have what we believe to be a valid sighting of these two individuals getting into a taxi at the intersection of Congress and Michigan Avenue at approximately 2:40 in the morning,” Bochte said. “And the taxi was last seen heading southbound on Michigan Avenue.”
It wasn’t until about 7 a.m. that someone noticed they were missing from their cells
