Four Escape from Jail in Miss., One Recaptured

Tuesday, 14 Jul 2015 12:30 PM

Four inmates escaped from a jail in Mississippi and authorities were searching for three of them on Tuesday after apprehending one.

The four, who faced charges ranging from murder to robbery, escaped from the Raymond Detention Center near Jackson shortly after midnight on Monday, authorities said.

An initial investigation indicated "this was a prearranged and preplanned escape," the Hinds County Sheriff's Office said in a statement posted on Facebook.

On Monday evening, authorities recaptured 19-year-old Jermaine Wilson, who is charged with capital murder in the 2012 rape and killing of a woman.

"We won't stop nor sleep until the other three are recaptured," Hinds County Sheriff Tyrone Lewis said in a statement.

The jailbreak follows the escape of two convicted murderers from a maximum security prison in northern New York last month. One of them was shot and killed after three weeks on the run, while his accomplice was captured two days later. The pair led law enforcement authorities on a grueling manhunt through the dense forests and bogs near the state's border with Canada.
