Escaped prisoner captured

The last of 12 fugitives who escaped from an Alabama Prison Sunday captured in Martin County tonight.

The Martin County Sheriff’s Office, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Tactical Unit, and the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force captured the last of twelve fugitives who escaped from an Alabama Prison Sunday Night.

24-year old Brady Kilpatrick was taken down by a team of law enforcement at a home on the 10000 block of SE Hobart Street in the south end of the county just after 7pm tonight.

Kilpatrick was the last of a dozen prisoners to be captured, and the only one to make it out of the Walker County Alabama area. His mistake, was coming to Martin County. Kilpatrick had no idea that a team of law enforcement was surrounding the community where he was trying to hide out.

According to reports from the Walker County Alabama Sheriff’s Office, the inmates took advantage of new guard by using peanut butter to conceal an exit door number. When the inmates called for the guard to open the door and let them in a cell, the guard inadvertently opened the exit door allowing the inmates to escape.

The first eleven inmates were captured within 12-hours of the escape. Kilpatrick was the last fugitive on the loose.
