In the wake of his escape, Ferguson was added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Top 10 Most Wanted List.

Ferguson, along with Stephen Sullivan, are accused of killing 40-year-old Brandon Fye. His body was found in a wooded area near Shrum Hollow Road in Macon County in August 2016.

They are believed to be in a white Ford F-250 truck with Tennessee license plate 3B5-7V2 that is believed to have been stolen from one of the inmate’s uncles.

It is unknown when the trio escaped from the jail and officials are reviewing video evidence to determine exactly when they escaped.

US Marshals and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have been called in to assist with the investigation.

Sheriff Gammons said the inmates are to be considered dangerous but does not know if the men are armed.

Anyone with information is asked to call 615-666-7155.
