Four Inmates Are On the Loose After Alabama Jailbreak

Four inmates from a major Alabama jailbreak have yet to be
recaptured after escaping Sunday night, including one who was
being held for attempted murder.

According to a Facebook post from
the Walker County Sheriff’s Office, 12 inmates originally broke
free from the facility, though eight have already been caught
by authorities.

Two men—28-year-old Steven Lamb and 19-year-old Christopher
Smith—were wanted for attempted murder, though in an update the
sheriff said that Lamb has been apprehended. Others on the
loose include Brady Kilpatrick, 24, who was sentenced for
possession of controlled substance, drug paraphernalia, and
marijuana; Larry Inman Jr, 29, who allegedly received stolen
property and attempted to elude authorities; Ethan Pearl, 24,
who allegedly resisted arrest, obstructed government
operations, possessed drug paraphernalia and other charges.

Authorities are offering a $500 reward for information leading
to the recapture of the inmates. As the search continues into
early Monday, the Jasper Police Department issued the following
statement to residents:

“JPD has activated additional personnel to assist the Walker
County Sheriff’s Office in locating multiple escaped inmates
from the Walker County Jail. We ask that downtown residents
stay indoors and turn on all outdoor lighting.”

In 2014, the Walker County Sheriff complained of a variety of
security concerns at the jail—including cells that didn’t
lock—which resulted in the assault of two deputies. The faulty
system was apparently shrugged off by county board members, who
responded that money had already been allocated to fix the
problem.

“They’re bringing a band aid, when we need to have a massive
surgery to correct this problem,” the sheriff said at the time.
