From the Richmond Whig, 11/3/1863

Boone, the Castle Thunder Murderer. The Norfolk correspondent of the New York Herald, says that Boone, one of the prisoners who escaped from Castle Thunder, week before last, and murdered the sentinel, Sutton Byrd, of North Carolina, arrived within the Yankee lines, at Williamsburg, on the 26th ult. The circumstances of their escape have already been published.

When the party got outside the limits of Richmond, they separated, each taking the course best calculated for his safety. Boone reached his destination in safety, but the rest of the party have not yet been heard from. It is hoped all will yet be brought to condign punishment.
