JT Lane, 19, a man serving a life sentence in prison for killing three students in a high school cafeteria back in 2012 has been recaptured after he escaped briefly from prison.
Reports from the authorities said J.T. Lane, who was serving three life sentences for the murders of Daniel Parmertor, 16, Demetrius Hewlin, 16, and Russell King Jr., 17 when he opened fire on the four students at Chardon High School, while waiting for a bus. He had escaped together with other two other inmates from the Allen Oakwood Correctional Institution in Lima, Ohio. However, Lane was recaptured in the Early hours of Friday according to an announcement by the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
Mr. Lane and a second inmate were quickly captured after a search that involved a helicopter and several law enforcement agencies, but a third convict was still at large the authorities reported.
Sergeant Green has identified the missing inmate as Clifford E. Opperud, 45 who was almost halfway through a 15-year-sentence for aggravated robbery, burglary and kidnapping.
According to reports, Criminal attorney Ian Friedman, who defended T.J. Lane in the case, said he was shocked to hear Lane had escaped from the Correctional institution and added that officials at Allen Oakwood Correctional Institute will have to be held accountable for allowing Lane to escape.
