WEBSTER CO., Ky. (WFIE) - Authorities in Western Kentucky have found an escaped inmate, who was on the run for almost a month.

Kentucky State Police tell us that 29-year-old William Casto escaped from the Webster County Jail. KSP says they discovered that Casto jumped the fence on November 11.

Almost a month later on December 7, Casto was found by law enforcement in Union County.

Casto’s location was given to a Webster County deputy jailer from a person of interest. The jail then notified state police.
