Barefoot Indiana escapee tracked in snow

An fugitive in Indiana who slipped away from police without his shoes was quickly apprehended by officers who followed his distinctive tracks in the snow.


Milton Burrell, 28, Muncie, fled from a hospital while in police custody but was soon spotted by a Delaware County deputy sheriff who noticed “fresh footprints in the snow that were from a person without shoes,” a court document said.

A lack of footwear was not Burrell’s only problem. He was wearing only a hospital gown as he hustled across a street near the IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital.

Burrell, who had been sought for missing a court date on a domestic-violence charge, was marched back to the hospital and handcuffed to his bed, police said.
