Raymond Morillo, who served time in jail for a manslaughter charge, was caught in Memphis after escaping from a Queen psychiatric facility.

A convicted killer who escaped from a Queens Village psychiatric facility by swapping clothes with a friend was captured in Memphis, Tenn. Thursday night.

Raymond Morillo, 33, was apprehended about 10:35 p.m. inside a Greyhound Bus terminal by the Memphis Police Department, the NYPD said. He will be held in Tennessee until extradition back to New York.

A friend was visiting Morillo, a patient at Creedmoor Psychiatric Facility, on Winchester Boulevard, Tuesday morning when the two switched clothing and Morillo fled the building, police said. His friend also left the facility.

Morillo served a 14-year prison sentence on a manslaughter charge for a fatal shooting and for assault, but had finished serving his time when he came to Creedmoor, according to published reports.
