PANAMA CITY BEACH, FL - Two convicted killers who used forged documents to escape their life sentences are being grilled by Florida law enforcement authorities who say they expect to make more arrests.

Among the questions being posed to Joseph Jenkins and Charles Walker: Who forged the papers? Who helped you run from police? What other prisoners have gotten away with this? Who was coming from Atlanta to whisk you out of Florida?

Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey promises "there will be more arrests."

Jenkins and Walker, both 34, were captured Saturday night at a motel in Panama City Beach. Hours earlier, their families had held a news conference in Orlando urging them to surrender.

Bailey says the men, who fled the Orlando area after word of their ruse became public, didn't know law enforcement was on the way to Panama City. He says the escapees were waiting in the motel for someone to arrive from Atlanta to take them out of state, adding that authorities don't yet know who that person was or where the convicts planned to go.
