They quickly responded and finally took him into custody.All Thursday afternoon, multiple agencies including Memphis Police, the Scotland County Sheriff TMs office, and The Missouri State Highway Patrol took part in the search.We asked Scotland County Sheriff Wayne Winn how Koehlhoeffer managed to escape. He was brought in by a deputy and a guard and they took his cuffs off and they turned their back for a minute and he took off and fled out of the door, Winn said.Schools were notified about the escape, but the Sheriff says he never considered Koehlhoeffer to be dangerous.
