12 inmates escape from Alabama jail; 1 still on the run

On Sunday, 12 inmates broke out of Walker County Jail.

The AP said the inmates covered the number of an outside door with the peanut butter, disguising it as a cell door.

The sheriff said "that door number was the outside door".

"We've got some evil people down here", Underwood said. I'm not going to make excuses.

Two of the inmates now recaptured in Walker County Jail in Jasper were convicted of attempted murder.

Inmate Brady Kilpatrick is the last prisoner who remains at large.

The prisoners then fled and used blankets to climb over the prison's razor-wire fence in less than 10 minutes.

As of now, it's unclear how the 12 men escaped.

Underwood said this is the first time inmates escaped while he is in charge of the jail.

Montgomery, Ala. - A dozen inmates escaped from an Alabama jail by using peanut butter to change the numbers above a door and trick a new employee into opening another door that led outside, a sheriff said Monday.

All of the 12 escapees, except one, Bradley Andrew Kilpatrick, 24, who was initially jailed for marijuana possession and paraphernalia, were successfully recaptured by guards.

"They're very creative and you just have to stay on your toes all the time", Underwood said.

What is likely the most acclaimed jail escape as of late included two sentenced killers who utilized power apparatuses to bore through steel dividers and pipes inside a greatest security jail in upstate NY.

As Radar can report, Police are offering a $500 reward for information leading up to the capture of the still missing inmates. Hundreds of law enforcement officers swarmed neighbourhood streets in a manhunt that lasted for three weeks.
