Public anxiety gave way to a collective sigh of relief after it was confirmed that a prisoner, who apparently “escaped” yesterday (December 11), was back in custody within two hours.
Unconfirmed reports state that Romeo “Bucum” Cannonier, who is serving two life sentences for the murders of police officer Delvin Nisbett and Gavin Gilbert, a witness in the same case, ran off and disappeared, while he was with other prisoners doing work around the abattoir area, in Lime Kiln, at approximately 11 a.m.
Reliable sources also indicate that he showed up at Her Majesty’s Prison sometime after 12 and he was returned to “lock up.”
The incident has triggered incredible social responses.
Efforts to reach the head of Her Majesty’s Prison were unsuccessful.
