A convicted murderer is back behind bars after being on the run for five days, the U.S. Marshals Service reported.

Patrick M. Walker, 34, escaped Thursday night from the Payne County jail after posing as a cellmate and posting bond for that inmate, whom he closely resembled. 

U.S. Marshals said they caught Walker in St. Louis, Missouri.

Authorities thought he was going by the name of the inmate, Charles Pendarvis. 

Walker, also known as "Notty Walker," is serving a life sentence out of Oklahoma County for first-degree murder of 19-year-old Brandon Harlan.

William Harlan says he was never notified that his son's killer was on the loose.

"No one has called me to this day. No one has reached out to me to this day," said Harlan. "We shouldn't have to sit here looking over our back on pins and needles, worrying about if he is going to kick our door in."

The family is also wondering if someone on the inside aided in Walker's escape.

Court documents revealed that Walker had help from three women in his escape. Authorities said one female accomplice, identified as Aisha Stewart,  helped Walker get to St. Louis, Missouri. She was also arrested.

Once Walker is back in Oklahoma, he will again be taken into custody at the Payne County jail.
