Last of the peanut butter dozen is recaptured

The final escapee out of a dozen inmates who managed to escape from an Alabama prison by using peanut butter, has been caught.

The inmates broke free from the Walker County Jail in Jasper on Sunday night by smearing the spread over a number on a door that lead outside to fool a new jail employee into opening it.

Eleven of the escapees were recaptured by Monday but 24-year old Brady Kilpatrick has been on the run ever since.

Today, at 7pm, Kilpatrick was recaptured at a property near his home in Martin County, Florida, the Martin County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

The inmate, who hails from Cordova, Alabama, was in jail on charges of possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia, when he fled.

Walker County Sheriff James Underwood said the inmates covered the numbers identifying the outside door and persuaded the jail employee watching them on surveillance cameras to open it from his control booth.

'Changing numbers on doors with peanut butter - it may sound crazy, but these kinds of people are crazy like a fox,' Underwood said. 

'He thought he was opening the cell door for this man to go in his cell, but in fact he opened up the outside door.

'Escapes happen.

'We've got some evil people down here, and they scheme all the time to con us and our employees at the jail. You've got to stay on your toes. This is one time we slipped up. I'm not going to make any excuses.'

'I said it was human error and he made a mistake,' Underwood said. '(The guard is) a young guy, he hasn't been there that long. This young man was a weak link, and they knew it.'

Underwood said the escape happened about 6.20pm on Sunday and he estimated the inmates had cleared the barbed wire fence in less than 10 minutes.
