A female inmate who escaped while being taken from West Plains to the Newton County Jail in Neosho has been found dead. The body of 36-year-old Vicki Barbrow of Pomona was found Wednesday morning in the Spring River in southwest Missouri. She was wearing the orange jail uniform and leg irons in which she escaped Saturday while passing through Lawrence County. Lawrence County Sheriff Doug Seneker says Barbrow stole a truck at a convenience store after asking the deputy to stop so she could use the washroom. Officers chased Barbrow until she drove the truck across a flooded stream. They later found the truck but Barbrow had gone.
