According to the sheriff’s Facebook post, Skaggs escaped from Lexington Jail and previously resided in Flemingsburg. According to CBS station WKYT, citing the Kentucky Department of Corrections, the convict left a home confinement program Monday at the Hope Center, a shelter and community service group.
Officials did not discuss the charges against Skaggs or the nature of his imprisonment.
If you know anything about the location of Skaggs, please call the Fleming County Dispatch at (606) 845-2121 or the Kentucky State Police at (606) 782-4127 immediately, as the sheriff and State police need to know immediately.
Skaggs’ prison escape is the latest in a series of recent escapes by convicts from the states of Mississippi, Virginia and Pennsylvania.
Corey Harrison, Casey Grayson, Jerry Raynes and Dylan Arrington are four delinquents who escaped from the Raymond Detention Center in Jackson in April, with the alleged help of a friend who is now facing accessory charges. Prior to his arrest earlier this month, Harrison was the last of the Mississippi escapees. The search for him spanned many states. The bodies of Arrington and Grayson have been discovered and the ex-con is wanted for questioning in connection with the murder of a pastor and the carjacking that took place in Jackson.
Then, over the weekend, Philadelphia police reported that two convicts had escaped from a local jail by breaching the perimeter fence. Two of the convicts have been named: Nasir Grant and Ameen Hurst, who are both suspected in the shooting murders of four people. The inmates reportedly escaped from the Philadelphia Industrial Correctional Facility on Sunday night, but police said they only learned about it Monday afternoon.
Two prisoners also escaped from a Virginia prison earlier this month. Last Thursday, Mexican authorities arrested Alder Marin-Sotelo on murder charges related to the death of a North Carolina sheriff’s deputy in 2022. Early Monday morning, police in Virginia apprehended the second suspect, Bruce Callahan , on a university campus.
