BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (LEX 18) — A convicted serial rapist who escaped an Alabama prison was captured in Kentucky.

On Wednesday, police say, 30-year-old Corey Davis escaped by hiding in a trailer used to transport furniture made in the prison’s factory.

Davis wasn’t discovered missing for eight hours.

But Friday night, police in Bowling Green received a tip that Davis was at a home on Warren Way.

When officers arrived, Davis reportedly fled but was taken into custody a short time later.

Police also arrested 33-year-old Jessica Adams of Bowling Green. She was charged with hindering prosecution and wanton endangerment.
