Longtime MMA Veteran On The Run From Three Pending Murder Charges

Manhunt Underway for Escaped MMA Fighter Wanted for 3 Murders

Police Searching for Escaped Prisoner in Conroe; Considered Extremely Dangerous

An "extremely dangerous" former pro mixed-martial arts fighter suspected in three killings escaped from custody early Sunday north of Houston, Texas authorities say.

Marks was last seen wearing an orange jumpsuit and restraints, FOX26 reported.

Recently, Maya Maxwell was also extradited back to Texas from MI on a charge related to their disappearance. Scott and a friend, Michael Swearingin, disappeared January 4 and were found buried in a shallow grave in Clearview, Oklahoma, on January 15.

Scott filed a complaint against Marks after an incident reportedly occurred in August 2018 at her home in the 7700 block of Redbrush. She went missing in March 2009 while living in a women's shelter in Bloomington, and Marks got custody of their son.

"Each time he allowed me to regain consciousness and then he choked me out again", Scott said in an affidavit. She said he took her cellphone to prevent her from calling 911. The protective order request was denied.

The prisoner who is being held on three pending murder charges escaped from a private prisoner transport vehicle on the north side of Conroe, according to an article by the Montgomery County Police Reporter.

Marks was being transported from Grand Rapids, Michigan and the transport made a stop in Louisiana.

Another woman tied to Marks was extradited back to Bell County in connection to the Scott-Swearingin disappearance.

Another Marks ex-girlfriend, April Pease, the mother of his child, disappeared in 2009 in Minnesota.

The transporters stopped for food when Marks escaped, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office.

Ginell McDonough, who is Marks' wife and the mother of two of his two children, is jailed in Muskegon County, Michigan, on an obstruction of justice charge.

An arrest affidavit said Maxwell, who became a person of interest because she last saw Swearingin's auto, admitted she took the 2016 Hyundai Genesis to Austin and left it there to hide it from law enforcement agencies. His last fight was in September.
