James Ladd, 51, slipped away from the Tillery Correctional Cente, a minimum security prison farm, on Sunday morning while doing farm work. Authorities found his abandoned tractor at 10 a.m., said Keith Acree, North Carolina prison spokesperson.
A helicopter flew over rural Tillery, N.C., Sunday night searching for the convicted murderer, who was given three consecutive life sentences in 1981. Bloodhounds also assisted in the ground search, however Acree said they were only able to follow Ladd's scene for a short distance.
"At this point it's been 24 hours, so if he got a ride he could be hundreds of miles away at this point," Acree said.
See? The fucking government is not all-seeing.
Here we have a motherfucker that's been under lock and key for 31 years and he's on the run, eluding dogs and helicopters. So much for drones, cameras and such being in control of us, huh?
