Last Alabama prisoner among dozen who escaped with peanut butter trick has been caught

All twelve of the inmates who escaped an Alabama prison by tricking a guard into opening an exist door have been recaptured.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, the twelve prisoners escaped from the Walker County Jail in Jasper on Sunday, and by Monday morning all but one had been caught.

The Palm Beach Post reports that Brady Kilpatrick, 24, was captured in Florida on Tuesday. He was the only inmate among the dozen who escaped to make it out of Alabama.

The prisoners reportedly altered the number on a door in the prison with peanut butter, and one tricked an inexperienced guard into opening it by telling the guard it was his prison cell.

“That may sound crazy, but these people are crazy like a fox,”  Walker County Sheriff Jim Underwood told reporters.

Kilpatrick was captured in  Tequesta, Florida, which is more than 750 miles away from Jasper. The Washington Post reports that investigators received information about the fugitive prisoner that led them to search for Kilpatrick there.

The Martin County Sheriff’s office announced the capture on their Facebook page.
