WYOMING/ ARIZONA (Indiana's NewsCenter) - After 11 days on the run from authorities, Tracy Province has been captured, following his break from an Arizona prison.

The US Marshal's service had reported early Monday, that they felt Province might have been headed to Indiana to meet up with family and friends.

Province and fellow escapee John McCluskey are tied to a white supremacist group.

A woman in a small Wyoming town called police after claiming she talked with Province on the steps of a church Sunday.

U.S. Marshal David Gonzales says, “Uh, this resident chatted with him, they chatted about doing odd jobs, those kinds of things. As soon as she sat down on her couch, up come the pictures of our escapees and she immediately identified him, and positively identified him."

Province and McCluskey are now suspects in the murders of a man and wife in New Mexico.

The burned bodies of Gary and Linda Haas were found in a camper near Albuquerque.
