the other since october 8th were caught earlier this evening, at 6:40 this afternoon. i am reading the information now. both were caught at the coconut grove inn up the road from where we are at at 6:40 local time. these fugitives caused a big problem, an issue, a very embarrassing issue for all agencies involved here. a lot of questions asked as to how they could have escaped the facility behind me. to recap, these fugitives forged documents that allowed them to get out early. of course, no one was able to tell how that happened. a lot of finger pointing going on. clearly, a successful capture of these two suspects without incident, just a short time ago, 6:40 caught in panama city beach. it appears they were together. don? >> a little more, let's talk about the suspects, their
7:01 pm
pictures are up on the screen. inmate charles walker, 34. he was serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole until this forged paperwork came about that has a lot of people asking questions. life without the possibility of parole on a second degree murder conviction. he escaped from the franklin county correctional institution this year after they received fraudulent release of the documents from the clerk of court. then the other inmate here, nick, who they just caught is joseph jenkins, 34, serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole as well. he was serving on a first degree murder conviction, again, escaping happening in orange county. he escaped from the franklin county correctional institution after the department received fraudulent papers. second degree murder charge,
7:02 pm
first degree murder charge, shouldn't say charge, convictions. they are out there on the loose. earlier, do we have the mother earlier, pleading with one of her sons? one of the mothers pleaded earlier for him to turn himself in. nick, let's listen. >> charles, is there anything too hard for god? god knows who you are. i know who you are. your family knows who you are. we want you to return home safely. >> that is charles walker's mother, nick, pleading with him to come out early. you have been speaking to family members of victims as well. it's important, also, to point out to viewers, nick, this is just 80 miles in panama city from the prison where they escaped in franklin county. they did not get very far. >> that's right. all along, the sheriff's department in orlando, they were
7:03 pm
from around the same neighborhood in the orlando neighborhood. all along, they were suspecting they were still in the state of florida, despite what they did, forging the documents to get out. just a few more details about their capture. the u.s. marshall service, in conjunction with the florida department of law enforcement were able to capture these two earlier this evening. if you remember, over the course of the last week, there's been so much finger pointing and questions as to how this could happen. but, they were able to do it. to recap, they said they did nothing wrong in processing the paperwork. they were following the procedures of the court order. we learned throughout the course of the week, this isn't the first time it happened. there was another, third man who tried to forge documents as well for an early release. he was caught before he was released. these two suspects, the two convicted killers, as you
7:04 pm
mentioned, both charles walker and joseph jenkins, both serving life sentences in this correcti correctional facility behind me. this was a clever way to get out of the facility. they were on the run. the family members pleading for their sons to give themselves up. we don't know whether or not they saw that press conference, but these arrests came a couple hours after that press conference where the family members, you just played the soundbyte where she pleaded to her son to turn himself in. we heard from the so-called father figure in the life of joseph jenkins, asking joseph jenkins to turn himself in. the details that emerged from that press conference, don, incredible to see and hear these two individuals were walking amongst us as if nothing was wrong. we also understand, they
7:05 pm
voluntarily checked themselves to be committed as felons. there's a procedure after you are released to check yourself in with the clerk of the court to voluntarily say you are a felon. they did that as some speculated that they did that not to raise any red flags. we know that they attended church services. they were seen at the mall, not together, but we have sightings and sources telling us that. the family members say they were not involved at all in their escape. they reiterated that at the press conference. we heard from walker's mother saying she has nothing to do with it and she made no attempt to try to conceal the where abouts of her son. some very good news for the agencies that were involved in this bureaucratic bungle that led to these two convicted killers being released early from the facility behind me. don? >> stand by. we have a lot to cover here.
7:06 pm
i want to update the viewers here. those two inmates that were released on not even a technicality, they were forged documents in florida, they have been arrested, again. the florida department of law enforcement along with the u.s. marshaller vis arrested the two escaped inmates. both of them, 34 years old. the fugitives were found at the coconut grove motor inn in panama city, florida, around 6:40 p.m. i would imagine panama city, florida, central time. it may have been an hour ago. panama city, florida, 6:40 p.m. apprehended without incident. charles walker, we played his mom pleading for his return. 34 years old serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole. the other inmate, joseph jenkins, 34, serving life sentence without the possibility of parole. he was in for a first degree murder conviction. the first man, charles walker

the breaking news here on
7:11 pm
cnn. two escaped convicts now back in custody in florida after they forged documents when they were serving life sentences without the possibility of parole. they managed to escape and have been on the run really now for weeks. they really weren't on the run in the beginning because they were visiting family members, going to church and visiting grandparents. when the scheme came to light about them forging the documents, it's when they went into hiding. according to florida officials, they only got 80 miles away from the institution they were housed to panama city, florida. it's where authorities caught them. i want to bring in danny, a legal analyst here on cnn. it's very interesting. so, to try to figure out how they forged the documents and how it came about. they are not the only ones that have gotten away with this. >> well, early release by accident is nothing new. we don't know yet exactly how
7:12 pm
they were able to forge the documents. i can tell you this, one of the greatest conveniences have been electronic filing. documents used to be official meaning you get a stamp and red ink. now, the courts are exclusively electronic filing. it's a pdf on your computer. i was able to find one of judge perry's orders online in pdf form. once you have that, all you have to do is crop it, stick it on a piece of paper and voila, you have his signature on anything you want to create. the electronic system made life convenience. like any other technology, it has its risks. >> apparently here, one of the officials really thought twice about the documents and had their concerns but because he was pressured saying this is the law, i have to let them go. >> sure. there are so many moving parts
7:13 pm
in the prison system. the communication between the court system is not always so smooth. it's no surprise that each person who reviews the document had concerns could have run it up the flag pole. a signature is a signature. a signature is a signature until it didn't. we are in an era where people are signing things and cutting and pasting images. i found a signature, an electronic signature, a slash, s and slash and sign your name. a lot of documents don't use the hand signature anymore. it's slash s slash and my name typed out. court order. >> do we know how many people have done or could be trying to do this same thing? >> who knows. it requires some level of sophistication. they need a laptop and they don't have them in prison.
7:14 pm
>> they need help. >> they do. this is conjecture. more, people in the legal field have access to more private court documents. george perry has been around in the public eye. less known judges have ordered to get into the dockets, secure areas. the reality is once you have a judge's signature and know about the format of a court document, it is easy to generate some kind of facsimile. >> they talked about the town. one left in early october, one left october 8th. the other left in late september, september 27th. that's according to authorities. they had motions indicating the sentences had been reduced as well as court orders granting the request. they discovered the documents were forged. they contain bogus reproductions of key player signatures
7:15 pm
including jeffrey ashton and judge perry, for the seal of the orange county clerk. prosecutors learned about what happened was after they were contacted by a member of walker's family. the family said hey, listen, these guys are out, how did it happen? >> sure. these guys actually left and then went on to register as felons in their local official's office, the sheriff's office. they behaved as if they were legitimately released. you wonder if they believed it on some level. i should add, you mention jeff ashton, he is a very famous prosecutor. he was casey anthony's prosecutor. when you have high profile people, they put the important motions online and you can access them on pdf. his signature is out there and just as easy to find. >> i want to update the viewers
7:16 pm
then get to nick valencia. the department of law enforcement and the u.s. marshall service announcing they caught the inmates. charles walker and joseph jenkins, both 34 years old. they were fugitives found at coconut grove in panama city, florida, 6:40 p.m. those are the two men there. i want to thank danny. nick valencia following the story as well. nick is in florida. nick is working his sources, i'm told, to try to get more information. we'll get to him shortly. in the meantime, danny, we're going to thank you and we will be back in just a minute with more information on this. also, i want to tell you, 8:00 eastern we'll have more on this case, the inmates released and now captured. certainly adds a fascinating element to the program tonight. what happens next for them? making the case here at 8:00 on

cnn. it's going to be an interesting program. moving on now, let's talk about the affordable care act or obama care as it's known. it might be the last legacy of president obama. right now, the only thing that is lasting are problems with the website. how did this happen? does this thing need to be scrapped and rebuilt from scratch? that's next. plus this, a girl's blog post has landed her in the middle of a class warfare controversy. she tilted it. i'm not going to pretend. i'm not going to pretend that i'm poor to be accepted by you. that's a head.

like i said, with the end in mind. understanding they had to sign up millions of people on this website. so, just on -- there's a few layers. the first layer is the website you need to go to. the user interface is complicated. the second is the code. there's still test code in that website. when it gets delivered to your computer, it's delivering lot of code that doesn't need to be there. the third component is all the integration to the back end systems. the irs and social security and all the different systems. it is a very complex process. the one thing is let's focus on the front end. >> focus on the front end. you said there's code in there that doesn't need to be. this should have been figured out months, if not weeks, months ago, right? how hard do you think it will be to fix? can it be rebooted or start from

but, i think when you start, especially in technology, if you start a project without understanding exactly what the day you are going to launch and work backwards. for instance, the news is broke they had literally four to six days to test this. their requirements were moving. they were changing the design of the website until one week before they launched it. normally, you would have code complete. you would stop developing the website for six months before you launch, not four to six days. >> all right. thank you. very good information, appreciate it. >> thanks, don. senator ted cruz, speaking out for the first time since the shutdown ended. you are not going to believe what he told cnn exclusively. man: [ laughs ] those look like baby steps now.

uncle went to grambling. it's a huge story. a black institution led by eddie robinson, one of the greatest coaches in the game. sent many players to the nfl. what is your reaction to this? what is going on? is this team unraveling? >> caller: you know, i'm proud of the players on that football team for standing up for several things. number one, you know, let's be frank. if you talk about to most people about hbc school an historically black college or university, most of the people know grambling, eddie robinson has a long history there. we are talking these guys getting on the bus to play in football games riding 14, 16, 17 hours to get somewhere. essentials from the university were taking a flight.
7:48 pm
remind you, they are on a bus for 14, 15 hours to go to a game. the president and whoever, other people high up in the university are flying there. but you have to physically go out and take what has appeared, not appeared but butt whippings. there was difficulty with williams being fired. it's not unusual. universities can't ask student athletes what they think of the next coach but he rubbed them the wrong way. another greater issue, mold on the equipment. equipment not properly cleaned. when you are on the football field, the type of work you are doing and the type of sweat and all this stuff, the mud and dirt and everything else and your equipment is not cleaned properly, it's unbelievable when you look at the circumstances they were dealing with. >> jamal, let me get in here. again, this is what we did on saturday evening, right?

7:50 pm
football team that is being allocated and i don't know, the argument is not with the university for spreading it amongst the other athletic the flooring that he had donated for the weight room to upgrade it was never utilized. it sounds like they need to figure out who is running the program, where the funds are going. >> misappropriations of money. maybe they need to have priorities. we haven't investigated that. i have to run here. are these players going to lose their scholarships? >> they should not. they should not. don, it's interesting. this is the first time we are seeing football players at a storied program band together. there is a lot of stuff going on in college football. does grambling state start something we see carry over in other universities in the future. >> i would venture a guess, yes.

thank you, jamal, anderson. jackson state university which was supposed to host grambling held a scrimmage instead. eight motorcycle riders are charged in the new york city road rage beating. there was another arraignment today. full details and the list of charges, up next. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation -- an irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. that doesn't require routine blood monitoring.

so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. [ gps ] proceed to the designated route. not today. [ male announcer ] for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions, jim can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, without talking to the doctor who prescribes it as this may increase the risk of having a stroke. get help right away if you develop any symptoms like bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto® and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions

such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is not for patients with artificial heart valves. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once a day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring -- no known dietary restrictions. for more information and savings options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit how old is the oldest person you've known? we gave people a sticker and had them show us. we learned a lot of us have known someone
