Manhunt Over
Martine Gurule sleeps with the fishes. Or did, until the Department of Corrections hauled his bloated body out of a Texas creek Thursday afternoon. Gurule, the first death row inmate to escape since the Bonnie-and-Clyde era, was found in Harmon Creek, still clad in his prison-issue garb. Given the condition of the body and its proximity to Ellis Unit, which houses Texas' death row, officials concluded that Gurule drowned in the swiftly moving current shortly after escaping on Thanksgiving Day.

Passage: Roy Burrowes, 72
The Jamaican-born American jazz trumpeter backed the likes of Ella Fitzgerald and Aretha Franklin, played in Duke Ellington's band, and composed his own music. Burrowes, who spent most of his life in New York, died of lung cancer in a London hospital.
