Thirty-two-year-old Jason Beadle, otherwise called ‘Goat’, of Path district in St Elizabeth, who escaped from the Santa Cruz lock-up on June 23, 2016, was recaptured in Spring Head district, St Mary today.

Beadle who was charged with murder, was recaptured during intensified operations being conducted in search of Dwight Henry, who escaped custody on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, citizens are being asked to be on the lookout for any strangers in their community, and to call the police immediately if they suspect he may be seeking refuge amongst them.

In addition, members of the public are being reminded that it is an offence to harbour a fugitive, and they will face the full extent of the law should they be caught assisting Henry or any other escapees.

Henry who is charged with the murders of two US missionaries in May 2016, was taken to the hospital for medical assistance, when he escaped custody.
