JOIE CHEN, CNN ANCHOR: To learn more this afternoon about Gary Scott, who's the one escapee who is still at large at this hour, we're joined on the telephone by Len Brooks. He's the district attorney for the 32nd Judicial Circuit in Cullman County, Alabama. He prosecuted Gary Scott for a 1986 murder.
Mr. Brooks, tell us a little bit about this guy and the crime he committed.
LEN BROOKS, DISTRICT ATTORNEY: Well, Gary Ray Scott is probably -- well, his is one of the most, the coldest, most callous individuals I've ever dealt with. He never showed any remorse for this crime.
He befriended the victim in this case after the victim stopped to pick him up as he was hitchhiking just outside the city of Cullman. They ended up riding in the victims car to a farm located in southern Cullman County where, in Scott's words, he just decided to kill him.
CHEN: You say that you describe as being the coldest and most callous person that you met. Can you describe something about some of the things that he has said, the nature of his demeanor and personality?
BROOKS: Well, it's just his demeanor, all the times that I've observed him, it almost like he seemed like he was proud of these acts. In the words that he used in a the statement, the victim's pleading and begging didn't bother me because I'd already made my mind up I could kill him and I could get away with it. And that pretty well describes his demeanor.
CHEN: Did he have other criminal history as well?
BROOKS: Not as an adult. He has a juvenile history.
CHEN: But he -- was he relatively young when this murder committed?
BROOKS: Yes. He was 17.
CHEN: All right, Len Brooks, who is the prosecutor in Cullman County, Alabama, speaking about the one escapee who is at large, Gary Scott. We'll continue to follow-up on that.
