Cliver, who escaped in 1985, was flown in from Florida and scheduled to stand trial on charges of murder, attempted murder and escape this summer. "We are not trying for overkill; but Cliver is a convicted felon, and he has shown a tendency to escape," Trooper Brent Johnson said, regarding the tight security at the tiny airport. About 15 uniformed and plainclpthes police watched as Cliver, with hands and feet shackled, left the seven- passenger state police plane Thursday at Sullivan County Airport. Cliver escaped from jail in October 1985, just 16 days before he was to go on trial for the attempted murder of his former wife and the murder of her boyfriend. Area residents lined a rural route near the airport's only runway and speculated about the 36-year-old Dugger native's second return. Sullivan County Sheriff John M. Waterman said the former trooper's previous escape was "definitely" an inside job and, because officials have not yet been able to pin down a suspect, extra security precautions would be taken. Cliver was in good spirits and joking with former colleagues upon arriving at the jail, Waterman said. "We took him on a tour of the place," said Waterman. "He looked at where he broke out and joked, 'You all have made some changes around here.'" The sheriff said a special steel-walled, double-locked cell had been built and the fugitive would be under constant camera surveillance.
