Winnebago Correctional Escapees Captured
Two escaped Winnebago Correctional inmates were captured in Dane County on Tuesday night. Witnesses reported seeing James Heather and Alexander Weinmann near Mazomanie – and spotted them running from a canoe rental shop after reports of a burglary. Deputies searched along the Wisconsin River to find the men, but ended the search around 3:00pm Tuesday afternoon. More than four hours later, deputies reported the men were back in custody. The men escaped from Winnebago Correctional Center in Oshkosh sometime between midnight an 7am.
