Three men who escaped from a Louisiana jail have been captured in Miami and police were examining a bloody knife found in a truck the trio allegedly stole.

The U.S. Marshals Service said the men were captured Monday at a Miami motel. The truck containing the knife was discovered at a Miami Beach park. Investigators want to find the source of the blood.

Jailed on charges of escape are 22-year-old Quentin M. Truehill of New Orleans, 39-year-old Kentrell F. Johnson of Marksville and 22-year-old Peter Hughes of Abbeville. Shirley Marcus, 40, of Miami is also charged with harboring fugitives.

Records didn't list attorneys for any suspects.

The men were wanted after escaping from the Avoyelles Parish Jail in March.
