Nearly Two Dozen Inmates Walked Away from IL Correctional Facilities in Past 60 Years


Twenty-two people have walked away from Illinois correctional facilities and are now considered fugitives… according to an Associated Press review of prison records dating back to the 1950s.

 

There have been five such incidents in the past decade… most of them involving people who walked away from transitional housing, which is intended to serve as a bridge between life behind bars and life in regular society.

 

The oldest of the cases dates back to 1955… if the escapee were still alive, he’d be 111 years old.

 

At the same time, Corrections has tracked down 11 escaped inmates in just the last two years.
