Death Row Inmate Let Out To Help With Search
FBI agents have temporarily let a death row inmate out of his cell to help with the search for the remains of one of two women he killed.
According to a court order, 36-year-old Chadrick Fulks was taken out of Terre Haute prison in Indiana to West Virginia to help FBI officers search for the remains of Samantha Nicole Burns.
In a letter, Fulks confirmed his role in the search for the 19-year-old Marshall University student, who was last seen in 2002.
Fulks said he showed agents the area where Ms Burns was buried during a 17-day crime spree after he and another inmate, Brandon Basham, escaped a Kentucky jail in 2002.
However, the teenager's body was still not found.
The court order allowed the FBI to take custody of Fulks for 18 hours between March 25 and April 12.
Investigators carried out a search for Ms Burns' remains on land near train tracks and an intersection near West Virginia 75, located on the edge of Kentucky, West Virginia and Ohio.
She disappeared after telephoning her mother in November 2002 to tell her she was leaving a mall near Huntington for her home 15 miles away in West Hamlin.
Fulks and Basham, 32, pleaded guilty to kidnapping and murder and were sentenced to death for kidnapping and killing 44-year-old Alice Donovan in December 2002.
Ms Donovan disappeared from a car park in Conway, South Carolina. Her remains were found in 2009.
Fulks' latest appeal was rejected by the US Supreme Court on Monday.
