COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

We're learning new details about the arrest of Jeffrey Eady, the man accused of killing three women in South Carolina.

We received a copy of the dash cam footage from Mexico Beach, Florida where Eady was arrested after a two-day manhunt.

The 31-year-old was spotted driving a blue 2008 Ford Focus, owned by Maybell White, one of the three women he's accused of killing. 

Deputies from Bay County, Florida, with the help of Mexico Beach and Panama City Police, along with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement that ended that search, putting the accused triple murderer in jail.

On Saturday, June 1, just before 6 p.m., a Bay County Sheriff's deputy got behind Eady. A chase soon began, but it ended with a crash. Eady abandoned the car and took off running. Officers searched for several minutes.

Almost three minutes later, Eady was in handcuffs. He was searched as officers worked to confirm his identity.

It didn't take long for them to come up with a positive identity.

Eady was eventually extradited back to South Carolina to face at least two murder charges. He has been put on suicide watch after trying to slit one of his wrists.
