FBI agents took the unusual step of temporarily letting a federal death row inmate out of his cell to help with the search for remains of one of two women he killed.
According to the court order, the FBI took Chadrick Fulks, 36, from an Indiana prison to West Virginia in March to help with the search for the remains of Samantha Nicole Burns, 19.
In a letter to The Associated Press, Fulks confirmed his role in the search for the Marshall University student last seen in 2002. Fulks said he showed agents the area where Burns was buried during a 17-day crime spree after he and another inmate escaped a western Kentucky jail in 2002.
Burns' body has never been located. Fulks and Brandon Basham were convicted of killing Burns and Alice Donovan of Galivants Ferry. SC., after they escaped from a Kentucky jail in 2002.
