Authorities quiet on escaped fugitives wanted for murder in Arizona

Authorities quiet on escaped fugitives wanted for murder in Arizona The Tucson couple accused of murder is still on the run tonight after attacking and overpowering two security guards while being transported one week ago today. And now, the U.S. Marshals Service has released more images of the couple in hopes someone will recognize them. They are stills from a surveillance camera—but they are not recent—so not taken while on the run. But the FBI hopes they’ll give the public a new look at the couple. The two escaped in Blanding, Utah, by overpowering a security guard from a transportation company taking the couple back to Tucson, where the couple faces murder charges in the death of a 72-year-old man.

One of the people accused of killing a 72-year-old man and overpowering two security officers to escape custody has been added to the US Marshals Service's list of the 15 most wanted fugitives.

Blane Barksdale, 56, along with his wife, Susan Barksdale, 59, may be getting help from white supremacists, US Marshal for the district of Arizona David Gonzales said Monday.

(AP) — A couple arrested after a 16-day escape from extradition to southern Arizona to face charges in a murder case have pleaded not guilty. Authorities say 56-year-old Blane Barksdale and his 59-year-old wife, Susan, had a video arraignment Thursday in Pima County Superior Court in Tucson.

The couple escaped custody in late August as they were being extradited to face charges of arson, burglary and murder in connection with the death of Frank Bligh, a Vietnam veteran killed in April in Tucson, Arizona. The two had used a medical emergency to get the guards to pull over to the side of the road, and then overpowered them and threw them in the back of the van, Gonzales said last month.

"Somebody like Blane in prison -- with both local -- with both state and federal prison, would be associated with Aryan Brotherhoods, white supremacist gangs. So those are the type of individuals we think that might be assisting," Gonzales said at a news conference Monday.

"I don't think there's a question that there are people that are assisting in harboring these individuals, and it is a felony," he said.

Authorities believe on the day of their escape, the couple drove the hijacked van to a remote area in northeast Arizona to meet with a new person and get a new vehicle.

They then left the van with the guards behind.

The guards managed to free themselves after a few hours, and they notified the Apache County Sheriff's Department, Gonzales had said. By that time, the Barksdales had been gone for about six hours.

On the most wanted list

The federal agency is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to Blane Barksdale's arrest and up to $10,000 for anything that leads to Susan Barksdale's arrest, Gonzales said.

Blane Barksdale has numerous tattoos on his arms and hands.

There is also a $5,000 reward for the red GMC Sierra pickup truck the Barksdales were last seen in, he added.

"Persons placed on the US Marshals top 15 list are usually career criminals with histories of violence, and whose incident offenses pose a significant threat to public safety. Blane Barksdale has the dubious distinction of fulfilling that requirement," he said Monday.

The crime

In April, police responded to a fire that led to an explosion at Bligh's home.

But he and his vehicle were nowhere to be found, and investigators discovered evidence the fire was set intentionally and that Bligh had been killed, Tucson police said.

On May 1, an arrest warrant was issued for the Barksdales on charges including first-degree murder, first-degree burglary, arson and auto theft, police said.

But the Barksdales had fled the state, sparking a nationwide search. They were found in Henrietta, New York, a suburb of Rochester, and arrested without incident on May 24.

Bligh's brother said the victim was good friends with Susan Barksdale but she had changed since meeting her new husband.

CNN was not able to identify an attorney for the couple.
