News hit the web that Vybz Kartel has escaped from Horizon Adult Remand Centre 30 November 2011 in Jamaica, Spanish Town Road. The dancehall artist has been charged with murder, conspiracy to murder, and illegal possession of a firearm in October. In what appears to be the biggest prison escape in Jamaica history, Vybz and seven other inmates took the road to liberty.
Vybz Kartel is now on the run and is listed as “Jamaica’s most wanted criminal.”
There has also been one fatality. One prison officer died of a heart attack as a result of the breakout whereas twelve others were injured, including two who were shot with guns that had been smuggled into the prison. Reports indicate that around 1:00 am, Vybz Kartel, whose given name is Adidja Palmer, took control of the prison holding the guards hostage at gunpoint. Some of the inmates took the guards clothing and car keys in order to help with their escape. Vybz Kartel is now on the run and is listed as “Jamaica’s most wanted criminal.”
The group of prisoners also impersonated prison officers on the phone and created false stories to ward off suspicion from authorities. The Police gave chase resulting in the capture of one of the prisoners. At about 1:45 am, they eventually made their way to the prison maintenance pickup-truck which they used to escape from the prison ground.
Personally, I wanna know where in the hell does one of the most recognisable men in dancehall hide? I mean, that cake-soap look doesn’t scream “incognito”.
