Search is on for Watson
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday issued a Statewide Tennessee Blue Alert for escapee Curtis Ray Watson. Watson who celebrated his 43rd. birthday on Wednesday is a person of interest in the homicide of Debra Johnson, 64, the West Tennessee Correctional Administrator for the Tennessee Department of Corrections. He then escaped from the West Tennessee State Penitentiary in Henning. Watson should be considered extremely dangerous, and if you see him you should call 911. The escapee has a variety of tattoos across his body, and is 5'11" tall, weighing 140 pounds, with brown eyes and a long gray beard. This was the third time a Blue Alert was issued in the history of the program, which dates back to 2011. The program uses the statewide AMBER Alert system to provide critical information to the public to assist in apprehending violent criminals who kill or seriously injure law enforcement officers in the line of duty or to aid in locating a missing officer where foul play is involved.
