TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Authorities in Florida say they are looking at several suspects in the investigation of two prisoners who escaped with phony documents, but so far they have made no arrests.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey said Tuesday that the convicted killers who escaped are not cooperating. Bailey would not talk specifically about the suspects authorities are looking at.

He says the documents that led to the mistaken release of Joseph Jenkins and Charles Walker were mailed in to the court clerk's office in Orlando. Investigators are still trying to figure out who made the documents.

Bailey says they found an iPad and cell phone at a Panama City motel where Jenkins and Walker were captured Saturday and they are reviewing them for evidence.
