Kohler, WI --- Three convicted felons, including two men about to extradited to Texas on murder charges, escaped police custody immediately following a prison church service by setting a diversionary fire in a shared restroom and then fleeing by forcing their way past surprised visitors, an FBI investigator said today.
"It's not what I expected, having these gentlemen storm by on my visit," said Joan Markis, who was visiting the prison at the time of the breakout. "I thought maybe the police were putting on a skit or something."
Other inmates and prison officials quickly extinguished the blaze set by the inmates.
Smoke from the fire may have contained poison gases or have been hot enough to burn inmates throats or airways, a prison spokesperson said.
Sheriff Lee Hannah said the escapees were Calvin Lamarche, 22; Jeffrey Williams, 27; and Willis Knower, 21.
"No one is happy to have to report this kind of event," Hannah said. "In this escape you've got a guy who can be real trouble. Willis Knower cannot be trusted in any way, shape, or form. I don't know why some people break out when they don't have much time left. It's kind of stupid, isn't it?"
What is this thing?
I don`t care, just do it again.
