(AP) — With two convicted killers back in police custody, authorities have shifted attention to finding out who made the phony court documents that led to the mistaken inmate releases that rocked Florida’s judicial system. Joseph Jenkins and Charles Walker, both 34, were captured Saturday night without incident at the Coconut Grove Motor Inn in Panama City Beach, a touristy area of putt-putt courses and go-kart tracks. Hours earlier, their families had held a news conference in Orlando — 300 miles away — urging them to surrender. “While the manhunt is over, there is still a lot that we do not know. I can tell you, there will be more arrests,” Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Baily told a news conference Sunday. Bailey said authorities will be interviewing the two prisoners all day. “We will be backtracking to those who helped carry out this fraud and along the way we will be looking closely at anyone who may have helped harbor these fugitives.”
