    Default Woman Found 33 Years After Escaping From Georgia Jail

    Woman Found 33 Years After Escaping From Georgia Jail

    POSTED: 5:53 am EST November 9, 2007
    UPDATED: 6:53 am EST November 9, 2007

    ATLANTA -- A woman who escaped from a Georgia prison 33 years ago has been recaptured in east Texas.

    Federal marshals arrested 53-year-old Deborah Gavin at her home Wednesday in Frankston, Texas.

    Gavin, who was serving time on an armed robbery conviction out of Gwinnett County, escaped from the Georgia Women's Correctional Institution in Baldwin County in 1974.

    In the following years, Gavin moved from state to state, living in Tennessee, Florida and Texas. Authorities say she met and married Richard Murphey, changed her last name and had two children.

    But Gavin's time as an escaped convict began to end when the U.S. Marshal Service's Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force got the case.

    The search for Gavin wound through much of the Southeast until investigators found she was in Frankston living under the name Deborah Murphey.

    Since Monday morning, marshals watched the house to make sure Deborah Murphey was indeed Gavin. To talk to her and verify her identity, they posed as city municipal employees and told her they were checking on a work order at the house.

    Then at 2 p.m. Wednesday, the marshals surrounded her house and knocked.

    Gavin came to the door with a shotgun, heard them out and surrendered.
