How do I find the prison escapee?

The companions quest says I need to find a guy who escapes from prison in Whiterun and kill him. Where is he?

Make this quest your only active quest. Go to your map and fast travel to the closest known place to the prisoner's shown location. Once there, the map indicator will most likely have moved since the prisoner does not stay in one place. Just follow the indicator shown on your map (sprint or ride a horse if you can) and you will eventually catch up with him.

If you have that quest as your only active quest, the map will lead you right to him.

Just make sure that that is the only quest that is active in your quest log. Exit Whiterun and head down the road east. He is walking away from the keep and your quest marker should lead you right to him.

You have to mark the quest first then go search for him.
Try to run/ride to him because he is always on the move.
Fast travelling ends up showing him much further away.
