NY Escapee Arrested in Memphis

(Memphis) – A convicted killer who escaped a Queens psychiatric hospital Monday has been captured by police in Tennessee.

Raymond Morillo, 34, fled from the Creedmoor Psychiatric Center in Queens Village after switching clothes with a friend who came to visit.

Morillo had spent 14 years in prison for manslaughter. He was transferred to Creedmoor in December for evaluation.

Police nabbed Morillo Wednesday in the Greyhound Bus terminal in Memphis. The pal that helped orchestrate the escape has also been detained.

Morillo is being held by Memphis police until he is extradited back to New York.
