One inmate still at large after 12-man jailbreak in Alabama

July 31 (UPI) — One inmate remained at large on Monday after a 12-person jailbreak from the Walker County Jail in Alabama, sheriff’s deputies said.

Authorities have not determined how the 12 men broke out of jail in Jasper — prompting a major manhunt.

The inmates were discovered missing there Sunday evening. Six were captured shortly after the escape and five others were found later Sunday and early Monday around Jasper and Birmingham.

A Jasper Police Department message asked that “downtown residents stay indoors and turn off all outdoor lighting” during the search.

The six immediately-captured inmates range in age from 19 to 28, and were in jail for crimes including attempted murder, burglary, domestic violence, breaking and entering and drug charges, deputies said.

The last inmate at large is Brady Andrew Kilpatrick, 24, who was in jail for drug and drug paraphernalia possession. A $500 reward was offered by authorities.
