Reynolds, imprisoned since December 2004, was seen climbing a fence at a recreation yard at the Stringfellow Unit in Rosharon, about 30 miles south of Houston, about 8 p.m. Tuesday.
Reynolds is described as a 6-foot-tall, 186-pound white man.
He's from Dayton in Liberty County and was convicted of the shooting death of a drinking buddy, Leslie Ledford, 36, also of Dayton. At his trial, Reynolds testified the shooting was in self-defense.
Ledford's body was found in a burn pit on Reynolds' property. Evidence showed Wood had been piled on top of the body to try to destroy the remains.
