The woman went inside, locked herself in a bathroom and called for help. And it seems that was the last time Elliot may have been seen at that gas station. But WWMT reports authorities don't think he's gotten far since then.
"He only had about $10 worth of gas to get him from the gas station to wherever he was going. At this point they have put a 'be on the lookout' out for all neighboring states." (WWMT)
WXMI is reporting that Elliot may have found a hole in a fence on the grounds of the maximum security prison and escaped through that.
Though WOOD is reporting Elliot may have escaped through the "sally port," which is the point of entry for new prisoners.
In 1993 Elliot was convicted of the murders of a woman, her boyfriend and her boyfriend's two brothers, apparently after his botched plan to steal drug money failed. After he killed the victims, along with an accomplice, they set the house containing the bodies on fire.
