Michael Pretty Boy Floyd Wilson captured in Jackson County.

Convicted killer Michael “Pretty Boy Floyd” Wilson, who escaped from a Mississippi prison on Thursday, was captured Saturday night (July 7) in St. Martin, the Biloxi Sun Herald reported.

Wilson – who escaped from prison in Leakesville, which is north of Pascagoula – was taken into custody just north of Biloxi at about 6 p.m., the story said.

Earlier in the day, authorities had offered a reward in exchange for information about Wilson.

Wilson, 47, was being returned to the South Mississippi Correctional Institution, which has been on lockdown since his escape, the story said.

The inmate is serving two life sentences for two killings.
