Kenneth Conley, who along with cellmate Joseph "Jose" Banks, used ropes made from bedsheets to scale the wall of the high-rise lockup from the 15th floor Dec. 18, was captured in Palos Hills, the Chicago Tribune reported.
Banks was captured two days after the escape less than 5 miles from the jail.
FBI spokeswoman Joan Hyde said Conley was found at an apartment complex in the south suburb about 4 p.m. Friday.
