Walker was found at a motel in St. Louis with a woman who was also taken into custody, officials said.

According to the arrest affidavit, someone posted bail for walker's cellmate, and Walker pretended to be that man in order to escape.

Investigators say he threatened to harm his cellmate's family if he didn't go along with the scheme.
