(CMR) Rudolph ‘Boxer' Shaw, one of Jamaica's most wanted men captured in Cayman in July and later deported, has escaped police custody in Jamaica.
Shaw, who has been charged with two murders, reportedly escaped from the Kingston Central lockup overnight, Jamaica Police reported this morning.
Reports are that Shaw was allowed time out of the maximum security section of the lockup this morning to carry out the usual morning routine for inmates, which includes going to the bathroom. According to a Nationwide News Network report, when checks were made at about 6:30, Shaw could not be found, and it is believed he escaped through a cut vent.
Commissioner of Police Major General Antony Anderson has instructed that a high-level probe be launched into the escape as an intense manhunt is carried out to find Shaw.
On 8 July, The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service arrested Shaw in the vicinity of Seymour Road, George Town, after he, along with another man, tried to evade the police.
Reports are that Firearms Response Unit officers in a marked service vehicle approached a vehicle with two occupants. The vehicle's occupants attempted to evade the police and rammed into the police vehicle, causing their vehicle to become disabled. Police captured the wanted man, while the other man escaped on foot.
Another wanted man who was later arrested was believed to be the second man who fled.
