Evans is a security guard working at the Virginia Central Penitentiary that housed Joe Carroll. He was on shift the night Carroll originally escaped, walking alongside Williams throughout the facility. He spotted Carroll, disguised as Pete Davis and bid him goodnight before heading towards the security office. It's here where he discovered the bodies of five guards, including Nickels and had Williams sound the alarm calling for assistance. By this time, Joe had already escaped in Pete's jeep and drove away calmly as the prison went into full alert.
