The daring northern Alabama jailbreak seems rather very sensational indeed. As many as 12 prisoners escaped from the Walker County Jail. After extensive search in the nearby area, as many as 11 inmates have been apprehended, while one inmate is still at large.
Reports suggest that massive search operation is underway right now to apprehend the lone prisoner who is still on the run. It is not yet known as to how the prisoners escaped from the high security prison like Walker County Jail.
Walker County Sheriff’s Office has identified the person who is still on the run as Brady Andrew Kilpatrick, 24, of Cordova. The sheriff’s office went on to add that the man was serving a prison term for alleged drug offenses.
Officials suggest that some of the inmates who ran away from prison were hardened criminals. At least two of them had been jailed on attempted murder allegations. Police offered a $500 reward for information leading to an arrest.
The Sheriff’s office said that six of the 12 inmates were caught shortly after they broke out of the Walker County Jail in Jasper, Ala., northwest of Birmingham, and five others were captured between late Sunday night and early Monday morning.
Nonetheless it is not yet clear as to how so many prisoners escaped without being detected. It is not clear if the jail’s infrastructure somehow allowed them to get out. The nearly 20-year-old facility holds 250 inmates, according to its website. County sheriff officials were not immediately available for comment Monday morning.
