Escaped Parker County inmate remains at large


An inmate in the Parker County Jail escaped Friday, and was last seen Friday night near Hwy. 148 in Jack County, North of Jacksboro.


The Parker County Sheriff’s Office is advising people to be on the lookout for Donald McFaden Orange II, 29, of Connecticut. Orange is 6 feet, 2 inches tall with a slim to medium build and weighs 165 pounds. He has brown hair and green eyes. Orange has shaved his head since his most recent mug shot, and has a tattoo of a woman on his left shoulder and a mummy on his right leg.

Orange might be wearing a blue sweatsuit with a white stripe on the legs. He is considered armed and dangerous.

He was last seen at a burglary Friday on Post Oak Road. Orange is believed to have tied up a victim of the burglary and stolen a blue and white 1992 Ford extended cab pickup with the license plate number BH3-3263.

Deputies from Parker and Jack counties searched near the area, and helicopters and scent-tracking dogs were brought in. He was not found, and is believed to have driven north on Hwy. 148, but may have taken Hwy. 281 toward Wichita Falls.

Orange was arrested by a Weatherford-Parker County task force in November on outstanding warrants, including two counts of burglary of a habitation in Fort Worth and Tarrant County; possession of a controlled substance over 1 gram, under 4 grams; criminal mischief less than $500; and theft of property less than $500, out of Parker County.

Orange was working as a trustee near Springtown Friday when he escaped. During the escape, he stole keys and a vehicle.

A Jack County deputy spotted the vehicle and attempted to stop it. Orange abandoned the vehicle and fled on foot. Law enforcement officials were unable to track his whereabouts until the Friday night burglary was reported. His inmate clothing was located at the residence.

Anyone who sees Orange is asked to contact the Parker County Sheriff’s Office at (817) 594-8845.
