Arizona, Jan 28 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A fugitive have told the police after his capture that he had wanted to commit suicide and allow the bears to eat his flesh up.

Tracy Province is a convicted killer. He managed to escape from an Arizona prison. He revealed when he realized that the search for him had intensified, he planned to overdose himself on heroin and die at the Yellowstone National Park where he believed bears would eat his body.

He told officers that he was in the middle of preparing the drug when a voice told him to stop. He fortunately listened to the voice and decided to go to Indiana and see his family.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Province believed the voice was a “divine intervention”.

Concerning the practicality of Province’s plan, a spokesman at the Yellowstone National Park said that, “We have a fair number of bears in the ecosystem. They eat about anything. A bear would rather get an easy meal than a difficult meal, but human-bear encounters are very infrequent.”

Province and two other accomplices were convicted of killing a couple in Mexico and burning their bodies in a caravan. They now have new charges of escape, kidnapping, aggravated assault and armed robbery.
